Hot DIY Nail Art Trends for 2013

What are ombre nails? There are a couple different ways to get ombre looks.  You can do it on each nail or start with a light color on the pinky and go darker on each nail all the way to the thumb. Either way, the ombre look shows no signs of slowing!

  • Tape around each nail or put a layer of glue around each nail without touching the nail or apply cuticle oil carefully on the skin around the nail (don’t forget the pad of the finger!)
  • Polish your nails with a base coat and at least 1 base color
  • Take the square bottom end of a triangular makeup sponge and place a strip of each color on the bottom
  • Stamp it on your nails, do it more than once if necessary bringing it up slightly higher each time if you want more

  • Apply a top coat and you are done!

Matte Designs

I’ve talked about my love of OPI polish.  When they came out with their matte lines of polish, I wasn’t initially all that impressed.  But they decided they weren’t quite done with the concept.  They finally got it right!  OPI Matte Top Coat.  What a great way to introduce super subtle nail art designs!

What you’ll need:  Base coat, regular OPI color, OPI Matte Top Coat, regular top coat and what else?  Scotch tape!   (Or find other types of netting or things that can create different designs)

  • Use a base coat and apply 2 coats of your color and a regular top coat
  • Wait until completely dry (approx. 30 min) and place strips of scotch tape in areas that you want your regular color to show through nice and shiny
  • Apply OPI Matte Top Coat over the top of the exposed areas
  • Wait until dry (5-10 min) and carefully peel off the tape
  • Voila!  Subtle nail art designs – very classy!
