Pokemon Ball Nail Art Tutorial

Thursday, 21 March 2013

Lately I seem to have gone cartoon mad, and I've fallen in love with Pokemon again! When I was growing up I had a massive collection of Pokemon cards, I had about 5 of each card. Pokemon was the best. Anyway I decided to look up some Pokemon nail art ideas, I came across Pokemon ball nails, so I had to try them. I loved it so much I thought I'd share with you how I done it.

My nails: 

You will need:

- Red nail varnish

-White nail varnish

-Black nail art pen

-White nail art pen

-Masking tape/micropore tape

Step one:

Apply the masking tape half way down the nail to stop the red nail varnish getting onto the bottom half of the nail.

Step two:

Paint the top half of the nail red.

Step three:

After allowing the red nail varnish to dry, peel off the masking tape.

Step four: 

Paint the bottom half of the nail white, be careful not to get the red.

Step five:

Using the black nail art pen, paint the line and circle on.

Step six: 

Using the white nail art pen, paint on the tiny little white dot in the middle of the black.

And BOOM your super cool Pokemon ball nails are all yours!
