Shades of Blue Nails

I’ve been wanting to try a design like this for a while now, but have always put it off as I felt it would be hard to freehand neatly. However I found that it was actually quite quick and easy to pull off.

I started by painting all nails in 2 coats of a bold shimmery royal blue shade.

Next I took a lighter blue shade that had a glittery metallic finish to it.

I painted 2 coats of this on every nail, but rather than painting over the entire nail, I started a little bit lower down and copied the natural shape of my nail. This meant that I was left with a bit of a border around the tops and sides of each nails in the darker colour.

I finished off the design by placing a small blue rhinestone in the top middle of each ring finger nail.
