Cartoon Nails (Tutorial)

April 11, 2013

Cartoon Nails!

I am currently studying Animation so I absolutely adore anything to do with animation or cartoons!
These are so cute and so easy! They look great with both gloss and matte top coats!

What you'll need:
  • Base coat
  • Top coat (gloss or matte)
  • One or several colour polishes
  • White polish
  • Black paint
  • White paint
  • Dotting tool
  • Detail/striper brush

Start by applying base coat.

Paint you nails whatever colours you want.

Then using either black acrylic paint or black polish and a striper brush to outline all the way around you nails.

Add a small white dot on the lower section of one side of the nail.

Then paint a white curved line going down from near the top of the nail to just above the dot.

Finish with top coat.
