One of my favorite purchases was my own nail art brushes and dotting tool, which you can buy for only a couple of pounds. However you really don't even have to do that if you want to be really frugal. For example when I first got into nail art I just used things I had lying around the home, perhaps one of my favourite things to use was cocktail sticks. These tiny wooden miracles help create precision-point fine lines and help me create some great patterns. Today I revisited the humble cocktail stick in this design:
This design uses two coats of Barry M Lychee as a base and then I dabbed some Barry M Bright Pink onto a scrap of paper and then used my cocktail stick to create some polka dots.
My accent nail is soo cute! AND it was so super easy to create! I dabbed on a large circle splodge (yes that is the technical term) of Bright Pink and then swirled a tiny bit of Barry M Matte White around to create an almost marbelled 'rose' effect. All I did then was add some leaves in Barry M Spring Green.
I love this design it is so girly and pretty and ready for summer and looks far more complex than it really is. Try experimenting with tape, cling film, stickers and anything else you have lying round the house to create more fun nail art designs. I would love to see what you come up with!
