Introduction: Hover Board Nails - BTTF
Runner Up in the
Back to the Future Contest
Are you ready to live up to Back to the Future's expectations of 2015?
While we don't have Hover boards quite yet, you can still sport some awesome hover board-inspired nail art.
Bring 1985 and 2015 together with this awesome nail art design.
I was inspired by the shape of the board; it already looks like a long fingernail.

Step 1: Gather
Time to raid your nail polish bin for the following colors:
Also, base coat and top coat, glitter (optional).
Tools= small nail art brush, fingernail polish remover, lotion.
Step 2: Base Coat and First Color
Start with clean shaped nails and add a clear base coat. Let dry and add a layer of hot pink.
Step 3: Designs - Layer 1
Add white stripes, white circle on thumb.
Some of the stripes that are white will have another layer of green ontop. Unfortunately, neon green needs white behind it for it to show up
Step 4: Designs - Layer 2
Add green on white stripes that you want to end up being green.
Add small segments of yellow on a couple nails. On one nail, add two parellel stripes of yellow.
Add two parallel pink stripes on one nail with white outlines.
It is okay for these stripes to overlap but make sure the bottom layer is dry first.
Add a red star shape in your white circle.
Step 5: Add Rhinestones and Lettering
Which ever nail has the two parellel yellow stripes, will receive 6 tiny red rhinestones.
These would normally say "Hover Board" but I couldn't go that small. If you can, go for it, otherwise some little red rhinestones will glam it up.
I can barely write "MATTEL" in the little red star. Do the best you can. You can even just do six white dots to represent the lettering.
Bonus: color in the hot pink areas with a little glitter polish, just make sure not to cover up any designs.
Step 6: Clear Coat
Clean up edges with some fingernail polish remover. Let all colors dry and then apply a thick clear coat. Let dry and you're ready to show off your hover-board inspired nail art!
Step 7: Top Coat and Dry
