Nail Art Tutorial ❤️ Camouflage

March 23, 2014

Hello darlings! Today, I wanna share a super easy, simple yet stylish nail art. Since I didn’t get the chance to use the nail polishes from the March Lacquer Cabinet Collection for St. Patrick’s Day which could have been perfect, I thought of doing a Camouflage Manicure. This print is traditionally used by the military but also has been used in the fashion society. Are you feeling pretty artsy? If so, get your nail lacquers ready and let’s get started!

Things you’re gonna need: 4 nail polishes of your choice, a brush/dotting tool/bobby pin and a top coat. Remember, the more imperfect shapes you paint, the better.

1. I painted my nails with Cement Mixer, a creamy pale grey with a hint of purple. This nail polish has a great formula and pretty opaque, so one coat was enough for me.
2. I mixed Cement Mixer and Venom (rich, inky black shot with subtle shimmer) for the second color. Using a brush, I painted irregular shapes starting from either side of my nail.
3. For the third color, I used Bottle Green which is a deep jewel green shade. I mixed a little bit of Cement Mixer and Venom to it for the shade I wanted, then repeated the same procedure.
4. The last color I used was Venom. I added some more imperfect shapes overlapping the other two colors. I also made sure that there’s a little bit of the base color showing through in the background.
5. Sealed it with a top coat and done!

I would love to know what you think of this nail art in the comments below. It’s definitely not the best camouflage design out there, but I am practicing. If there’s any nail art/design you want me to try and create, just say so. I do like challenges *LOL* I hope you find this blog post helpful and fun! Xoxo
