Abstract Nail Art

Hello and Happy Friday! Spring Break season is among us so I thought it would be the perfect time to share some quick and easy nail art y'all could do quickly before you head off on any Spring Break adventures. :) So todays blog post includes a quick video on 2 different Abstract Nail Art Designs.



Abstract Nail Art

One of the manis is more normal and what most would consider your standard abstract looks. Its actually taken from one I did a while back here and I have revamped! This time I've gone more pastel. Then the last mani is more abstract + girly. So abstract with a twist! For both manis I have used 3 polishes and acrylic paint for a few little details. Below are the polishes I used.

Heroine - Empower-Mint
Heroine - Sugar Spun
Deco Miami - Champagne Mami

Abstract Nail Art

First up is what I think is the easiest even though they are both easy! Here I started with Sugar Spun as my light pink base. Then I used Empower-Mint and used the dry brush method and swiped here and there on my nails. If you haven't heard of it before its basically just making it so you have a very minimal amount of polish on your brush and then applying it. Its really easy because you are just using the brush from the polish bottle.

After the mint I did the same thing with Champagne Mami randomly, I tried to do about 2 swipes of it per nail. After that I then used black acrylic paint to paint on rectangles and clusters of 3 dots. Then applied the top coat and it was done!

So for this mani I used the same method. I started with Empower-mint as my base then I did the dry brush method with the rose gold shade. After that I then used the pink, Sugar Spun to create deformed dot. I just used the bottle brush for this, you could use a dotting tool if you would like though.

After that I then added the leaves with green acrylic paint and then did the black detailing like I did in the first mani. The next thing that was different was adding in a darker pink acrylic paint to the flower to give it some dimension. Then its just a matter of drying and top coat and you are ready to go.

  2. I am in love with both of these designs! The first one is extra-special to me because it is just like the curtains in the house my granddad built in the 1950s that I know from old family portraits from the period.
