N.A.C. Week 2 - Orange Nails
Monday, March 18, 2013 | 0 comments
Hey guys, its time for the N.A.C. week 2 -Orange nails. 
The design I did for this week is cute & simple. 
You can defiantly change up the colors for this. 

What you need:
- base coat
- top coat
- orange nail polish
- white nail polish
- grey acrylic paint (or black & white acrylic paint)
- dotting tool (or toothpick, pen, etc.)
- stripper brush
- small dish to put paint on
- water
- paper towels

Okay first off start by painting your nails with a base coat. I'm using ESSIE 'all in one base'.

Next paint only the thumb & ring finger white. I'm using ESSIE 'blanc'.

While you're waiting for that to dry, paint the pointer, middle, & pinky orange. 
I'm using CHINA GLAZE 'papaya punch'.
Apply a second coat to all the nails when it's dry.

Now on the thumb & ring finger, paint diagonal from the corner or the end of the nail to the middle with the orange nail polish.
Do the same thing to the middle, pointer, & pinky but using the white nail polish.
Apply a second coat if needed once dried.

We're gonna use our dotting tool to make polka dots on our diagonal that we just painted. 
Using the opposite colors, I'm doing 4 dots, then 3 dots then 2 dots.
It should look like this after all the polka dots are applied.

Almost done! Next we're going to use grey acrylic paint, or mixing white & black acrylic paint together to make the cute little bow.
First start off with making a clean straight diagonal line with the stripper brush on all the nails.
Next make an 'X' in the middle of the diagonal line. Do this to all the nails.
Lastly connect the top corners to the bottom, like so & fill in. Wasn't that easy? You can also put a dot in the middle or leave it, its up to you. 

Let the paint dry & top coat. I'm using SECHE VITE 'dry fast top coat'.
Hope you guys try this design with different color combinations! 
Come back next week for the N.A.C. Week 3 - Yellow nails!
