Introduction: Wispy Nail Art

This might be my favorite nail design right now, it's so pretty and easy!! You can do this with as many layers and colors of stripes as you want. I wanted to try an instructable that looked more professional. I got so many compliments on this nail design, everyone will want to know how you did it!! If you try this look, send me a picture! Enjoy!!

Teacher Notes

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Supplies

1.) base nail polish- I use white, black would look awesome as well.
2.) nail stripers- I used neon pink and blue, with silver. Use as many of these as you want, but three looks just fine.
3.) top coat- any top coat you choose, just to make sure your design lasts :)

Step 2:

Start off painting your nails with your base color. I used China Glaze "White on White." Let that dry very well before moving on.

Step 3: Striping

Take your first nail striper and make wispy little lines starting at you cuticle and brush upwards. Try experimenting with different lengths and thicknesses. These don't have to be perfect, so don't worry :)

Step 4:

Now add your second stripes. Mine are blue, I love the way the blue mixes with the pink to make a purple :) just do the same thing you did last time to give it a layered affect.

Step 5:

Now I'll be adding my metallic stripes. I only used about 4 of these just so they add a little more to this look. This step is totally optional, you could just use another color for sure.

Step 6: All Done!

You're finished! If you want, add a topcoat to seal your design in. I hope you enjoy this look, make sure you send me pictures if you try this! I'd love to see different colors or more/less layers, it's up to you!!! Enjoy!
