Colorful Wednesday: Paddlepop Nail Art Tutorial

Paddle-pop anyone to cool the heat?

Ice creams like these are so nostalgic, they were my childhood friends before I knew brands like Haagen Daaz, Baskin Robins etc.

And I will show you how to replicate them on your nails.

All you need is color shades, and of course a base and top coat ;)

Prep your nails with base coat, let dry and start with the lightest shade.

Using the nail color brush, carefully make small but even strokes in horizontal, it’s hard to make a crisp line if you are not using tape, therefore it’s a better idea to start with the lightest shade.

When the first shade is dry, using the second shade, now try to salvage the line and make it as crisp as possible.

When the second shades dry, finally use the final color for the tip ;)

This is easy because you just have to fill in the blanks!

When it’s all done, you can still touch up the color that is not pigmented enough.  And using Q-tip dipped with nail polish remover, carefully clean up the sides on the nails that have been smudged.
