To celebrate, I wanted something bright on my nails. I wanted yellow. And after a few hours of simultaneously watching a movie on my laptop and doing my nails, this nail design came to be:
I called it "Merry Go Yellow" because of how I painted the design. I simply went round and round with broken lines. This was simple to create and I really liked how it turned out.
I used 2 coats of OPI A-taupe the Space Needle as background color. I thought it was the perfect brown shade for a bright yellow nail art. It didn't disappoint.
Surprisingly, I did not use any nail art brush for this design. I used a dotting tool instead. It was not as I have planned. Honestly, I was feeling a little lazy so I thought that using a dotting tool would be easier to accomplish this nail art. But I was worried about precision that a brush will be able to do. Turned out, the dotting tool resulted to the effect I wanted.
Here's a closer look:
I decided to use 2 shades of yellow just to make this nail art more interesting. I started off with a lighter shade to create the center and used a brighter hue for the outer lines. I painted 2 center points on each nail and as I built broken curved lines around it, they intersect each other.
I love abstract nail designs like this. I find them very wearable and classy on the nails. I guess that's why I have so many in my nail art gallery.
From a distance, this particular nail art looks like a ripple and is somewhat hypnotic to look at. It is also quite attractive because of the color. If you'd like it to appear more subtle, you could probably use a different color scheme. Or, you could downplay it by just having 1 "ripple" per nail.
I could definitely recommend this for nail art beginners. This is very easy to do even with your non-dominant hand since you'll be working with a dotting tool.
I wish I was able to do a video tutorial for this. Sadly, I really didn't expect anything will happen when I sat on my personal nail station. But I hope you'll be able to recreate this design through the photos. Let me know if you do. I would love to see your personal twist.
Thank you once again for your continuous support for my blog. Cheers to more years of nail art blogging! :)
