Pokeball Nail Art
Believe it or not but I used to be a nail biter. I know I know. But I have got out of that habit and grow my nails now which means I enjoy painting my nails now a lot more than what I used to because there was no nail to paint and I am constantly buying new nail varnishes. Because I have longer nails, this means that I enjoy doing the occasional nail art for a bit of fun.
Now I tired this nail art months ago for my boyfriend as loves Pokemon so I decided to give it ago and I haven't done it since so I decided to do it again and show some pictures. The first time I did it, I did it on all of my nails and it took me about three hours overall no joke because I'm a perfectionist so I decided to do it on just one nail on each hand to make it a lot easier.
The first thing you will need is black, red and white nail varnish. Now I have misplaced my black nail varnish so I simply used a old back eyeliner with a felt tip nib which did the job perfectly.
The first thing you want to do is apply a base coat to protect your nails. You then want to use your red nail varnish. You can either paint half the nail or the whole nail its entirely up to you. You then want to paint the other half white and this may need 1-2 maybe 3 coats to get it white white. I then painted the rest of my nails red to ho along with the theme whilst waiting for the white nail varnish to dry.
For the next bit, I sprayed hairspray on my nail and then did a line int he middle of the nail with a black dot in the middle. (This may need several going overs). Then you place a white dot in the middle of the black circle, apple a top coat when dry and clean up any mistakes made and you are done! It is that simple!
I always get compliments when doing this type of nail art and it's so easy to do!
If you have any other types of nail art you like to do, let me know in the comments as I always love to give different ideas and themes a go! Do you like doing nail art?
