3 Easy Beginner Nail Art Tutorials | No Nail Art Brushes Required!


A goal of mine this year is to make more designs and tutorials that would be helpful for a nail art beginner. We all have to start somewhere and a 2 hour, intricate design definitely isn't where I began!

I decided to start a little series here on the blog where I will showcase three simple designs within a specific theme. For today's post the theme is nail art without nail art brushes. Yes, it's possible!


I can assure you that these designs are easier than they appear, I completed each one within fifteen to twenty minutes.    

For The Center Stripe you will need...
-1 toothpick
-Teal nail polish
-Light blue nail polish

Step 1: Paint your nails using two coats of the light blue nail polish of your choosing.
Step 2: Use the brush that comes with your teal nail polish to create a stripe down your nail.
Step 3: Use your toothpick and dip it into a drop of the light blue nail polish. Then dot your toothpick down the stripe of your nail. 

For The Chevron Tip you will need...
- Light blue nail polish
- Gold metallic nail polish
- Taupe or white nail polish

Step 1: Paint your nails using two coats of the light blue nail polish of your choosing.
Step 2: Use the brush that comes with your gold metallic nail polish and create a "v" shaped tip on your nails. Start on one side of the "v" and then connect the other. 
Step 3: Repeat step 2 with your taupe (or white) nail polish.

For The Bold Stripe you will need...
- Silver metallic nail polish
-Teal nail polish

Step 1Paint your nails using two coats of the teal nail polish of your choosing.
Step 2: Use the brush of your silver metallic nail polish to create a vertical stripe down the side of each nail.
Step 3: Use the brush of your teal nail polish to draw a horizontal stripe that connects to the first stripe. This should create an "L" shape.


That's three easy designs, with three easy steps, and a very minimal amount of supplies for each! 
Which one is your favorite? Which would you try first?

*These images are very much pin-able. Pin now, try later!*
