Nail Art Wednesdays with Let Them Have Polish – How To: Easy Color Drips

Nail Art Image

It’s Wednesday again, which means another cool nail art tutorial from Cris at Let Them Have Polish! Enjoy!


Hello lovely readers!! Today I want to share a break down of one of the very first nail art techniques I ever tried, DRIPS! Drip manis create the effect of melting colors, think of melted crayon art. I’ve always found these really neat and easy to create. As with most techniques I share, the drip look comes with endless possibilities.

I love how drip manis look, and there are about 1,342 ways in which one can achieve this neat effect. With that said, I want to focus on the method I find easiest and quickest. Step one, of course, is to choose your base color. For this tutorial I went with KBShimmer Stark Raven Mad. Isn’t she a beauty? Though not completely necessary, I do suggest top coating your base color to aid in dry time as well, as protecting the base while working on your drips.

Fishtail Mani Using OCC Nail Lacquer (Don’t Laugh)

OCC Nail Lacquer

I’ve been on a nail art kick lately, trying to do some new designs I haven’t tried before. This time around I decided on trying the fishtail mani, as some like to call it.

Once again I used the tutorial that Sarah from Chalkboard Nails did because it seemed like an easy, fairly straight-forward method.

The colors I decided to use were from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics and are called Dangerous, Something and Wasabi. I think these three shades go together perfectly!

Blue, Pink and Black Leopard Spot Mani

Blue-Pink-Black Leopard Spot Mani

In the mood for nail art the other day I decided to push myself a bit and do a pattern I had never tried: leopard spots.

One of my go-to resources for nail art tutorials is Chalkboard Nails. Sarah has great photos and explanations of how to do many different nail art patterns, so I watched this video and followed the instructions. It worked really well I think!

This isn’t really a tutorial but I did take some (iPhone 5S) photos along the way. Sorry for the quality, they aren’t meant to be blown up this large.

Cat Fur Manicure Tutorial

Cat Fur Manicure How-To

Good morning!

Today I’ve got a perfect manicure for those who might be a little, oh I don’t know, avant garde or daring. It’s what I call a Cat Fur Manicure. It’s actually not as time consuming as a lot of nail tutorials out there, which is a good thing for someone as impatient as I am. It can take a little practice though!

So what do you need for this tutorial? Not much. All you need is a base coat, some nostril scissors (or other small scissors will work) and some cat fur!
