Hi everyone. This week’s design is a cute, quick and easy design using some nail confetti!
I was recently sent some nail confetti packs from Technic and I thought these cute pastel ones would make the perfect cupcake sprinkles. The packs are £1.50 each from their website, and come with a variety of shapes/colours of confetti, glue, an orange stick, and a small file.
All you’ll need to give it a go is three polishes (white, a pale pastel colour and one slightly darker but the same shade as the pastel polish), a thin nail art brush, a medium dotting tool, and some nail confetti.
I’ve used The Nail Art Decoration Kit, Bubblegum, Loganberry and White all from Technic.
Step 1: paint your nails with one coat of your pastel polish, then paint a second coat just on the top half of your nails (this will be the cupcake case).
Step 2: use the thin nail art brush with the darker polish and paint thin lines, about half a cm apart, on the top half of each nail.
Step 3: with your white polish and dotting tool, paint a line of connected dots along the middle of your nail (make sure you cover the top of the lines).
Step 4: use the polish brush or your dotting tool to fill in the rest of your nails with white polish, then let it dry.
Step 5: pick out the confetti shapes you want to use. I went with the pink hearts and purple stars to match the polishes I used.
Step 6: place the confetti sprinkles on the white polish. To do this apply a small amount of topcoat or the glue that comes in the pack to the area you want the confetti to be, and gently place them on using the orange stick.
- To pick them up touch the orange stick to the wet polish/glue and use this to pick up and place the confettis.
- You can use topcoat to stick them on to make them easy to remove, but use the glue provided if you want them to last a few days.
- Remove glued on confetti by holding a piece of cotton wool soaked in acetone polish remover on the nail for 5 to 10 minutes, then wipe off as normal.
Step 7: clean up around your nails, apply a thick layer of topcoat to protect the confetti, and you’re done!
I really hope you liked this design, and if you’d like to get yourself some of these nail confettis, you can find them for £1.50 on Technic’s website (http://www.lovethymakeup.com/nails-nail-art-product-technic-nail-art-decoration-kit-1826).
Thanks for looking, Kirsteen x
