Green Striped Colour Block Nail Art

There’s a story behind this nail art and that’s simply I created this by accident. I was playing with polishes and nail wheels and practising with nail art pens and  actually created something that I really liked so I thought I would share it with you guys. I wasn’t sure what to call this design but I hope that you like it even if it can be a bit tricky to do!
You Will Need:
A mint polish (I used Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Greenberry)
A mid-toned green polish (I used No7 Gel Look Shine in Peacock Green)
A white nail art pen or thin tipped polish (I used Seventeen Nail Art Pen in White)
Nail stickers/gems (these gold ones my sister got from Ebay I believe)
Sellotape and Scissors (if you struggle creating straight lines with nail art pens)

Step One

After applying a base coat, paint your nails with the mint green shade and allow to dry fully.

Step Two
Similar to a french manicure paint the tips of your nails, this time with the dark green colour. The neater you are the better but if you do wobble a bit like me don’t worry too much because we will neaten that in the next step. If you struggle here you can always use the tape to block of the mint green section to smoothly apply the darker polish.

Step Three
Once you have the second colour applied you want to create a white line between the two shades, this part is really difficult especially if you have shaky hands like me but tape can help with getting that crisp line if you struggle like I often do!

Step Four

The final step is the easiest, all you will do is place your nail sticker or nail gems in the centre of the nail. I have these lovely gold ones that my sister bought from China on Ebay but you can use whatever you like. If you want extra security and longevity you can add seal it into place with a top coat.
