How to make a simple nail art step by step?
On short or long nails, before making an original nail art, you must first master the technique. First step: have beautiful nails. To do this, draw the nail file and the cuticle pusher.
Once the nails are filed in the shape of your choice, your cuticles moisturized and replaced, move on to step two: the base coat. As with any manicure, applying a hardening and protective base coat is essential for beautiful nails.
Next: apply the first coat of nail polish. One or two passes depending on the rendering and the color of the varnish you have chosen. Once the varnish is dry, it’s time to create a pattern with another color.
Remember, the secret to a successful manicure is patience and application.
Finally, the special nail pen is ideal for creating dots, lines or other. If the available colors do not suit you, it is possible to buy adapted brushes to catch the product directly in the bottle. They come in various shapes to create original designs.
Stamping is also a must in nail art that allows you to create beautiful designs with nail stamps.
And of course, once the pattern is finished and the nail polish is dry, it’s time for the top coat. It allows your nail art to last several days!

Proceed to a good preparation of your nails, in order to improve the hold of your nail art!
Go to our “Nail preparation” tutorial for a complete demonstration.
The nail art trend invades social networks, and makes us want to get involved too. Unfortunately, the result is not always there.
It’s like everything else, you have to learn how to do it. To start slowly, but surely, here are five models of nail art easy to achieve. Guaranteed without smudges.
This manicure is ultra minimalist, but still gives a nice graphic effect to our nails.
What you need: a gold or silver nail polish, a boxwood stick, a top coat, a fine nail art brush.
The realization: once your nails are prepared, either you start on a nude nail polish base as above, or on a colored base. Your choice.
Spread a line of nail polish in the middle or on the side of the nail with a brush with a fine or beveled tip. If you want to add a graphic touch, make small smudges on the sides of the line with the boxwood stick.
Let dry for a few minutes and apply a coat of top coat to complete the manicure.
Reverse French nail art
What you will need: a nude nail polish, a glitter nail polish, a top coat, French manicure stickers.
How to do it: apply one or two coats of nude nail polish depending on the opacity of your nail polish. For this manicure, it is very important to let it dry well.
Once the color is dry, apply the French manicure stickers to create a space between the nail and the cuticle. Carefully apply the glitter polish in the space created. Leave on for 5 minutes before removing the stickers. Leave on for another 15 minutes, before finishing with a top coat.
What you will need: a colored nail polish, a black nail polish, a top coat, nail art tape, a fine nail art brush.
The realization: start on a base of “naked” nails. The first step is to divide the nails in two with the colored varnish. For this, apply tape to make a delimitation. Apply one or two coats of colored nail polish depending on its opacity.
Leave for 5 minutes before gently peeling off the tape. Once finished, let the varnish dry a little more before drawing the black line. To draw the black line, take a fine brush and gently apply the varnish as you would an eyeliner. Go in all at once, following the curve of the nail.
Finally, once this last step is complete, set the manicure with a top coat.
What you will need: a nude nail polish, a black nail polish, a toothpick, nail art tape
How it’s done: after preparing your nails, apply a nude polish. When all your nails are painted and dry, create a small triangle-shaped space with tape. Fill in with black polish to create the triangle and wait a bit before removing the tape.
Once the triangles are dry, use a toothpick to pick up some black polish to make small dots along the triangle. Let your work dry before sealing it with a top coat.
What you will need: a light pink nail polish, a white nail polish, a black nail polish, nail art stickers, a fine nail art brush.
The realization: the first step is to apply light pink varnish on all your nails. Let it dry well before making the nail art.
To draw the eyes, start by making a kind of thick inverted French. With the scotch tape, create a wide boundary between the nail and the cuticle. In this space, apply white polish. Let it dry. Then, with a fine-tip brush, draw the eye contour, the lashes and the pupil.
Finish with a top coat to make your manicure last.
