Flashback #3: Swirl Nail Art Guide

Hey guys!

I have combined my Swirl Nail Art Guide with photos from my Sunshine Swirl Nail Art post. The nail art guide tells you exactly how I created this look so you can try it out. I thought I would show you my Sunshine Swirl Nail Art seeing as we have had pretty lovely weather in the UK over the last week or two. So, here is the guide......

Recently I have been discovering how many amazing nail art techniques there are out there and how many people are so talented at creating them. I thought I would share with you one really easy technique that I came across as I am fairly new to nail art and you might be too.

Polish swirl nail art is something I had never thought about before but is so fun, quick and simple to create. Here is a guide as to how I created it:

1)Apply base coat.

2)Paint each nail with one coat of white polish or a colour of your choice. This technique probably works with pale pastel colours too!

3)Paint each nail with a second coat of white polish.

4)Before the polish dries dab on two dabs of your first swirling colour and then two dabs of your second swirling colour. I dabbed the colours in a way that meant they were diagonally opposite one another.

5)Whilst the polish is wet use a cocktail stick to swirl the colours together in any way you want to. Here you may have to add a small dab of white polish to help add some more swirls to your design.

6)Leave to dry thoroughly and gently apply your top coat.

I would love to know what your thoughts are on this nail art technique!
