Going wild with the Tribal Fever Collection!
Nails have become the ultimate accessory in the past few years and whether we visit a nail salon or choose to paint our nails at home, we always want something on trend. Summer is approaching fast so I thought I would show you a very eye-catching nail design. It is a dry marble nail art technique that is a really IN right now and it’s super easy to do. I love Leighton Denny Expert Nails products as they are professional quality, with long lasting formulas and colours that are to die for!
You will need:
LD Tiger Tamer
Piece of flexible plastic/Sellotape or nail stamper
Use Latex Skin Protector or Nail Oil to help protect skin from polish transfer.
Step 1 – PREP - File your nails to desired shape using the award winning Crystal Nail File and apply a thin coat of Undercover Base, allowing it to dry for few minutes.
Step 2 – COLOUR – Apply two thin coats of your chosen nail polish colours to thumb, index and middle finger. Apply only one coat of Tiger Tamer to your ring finger and pinkie. Optional - if you have a latex barrier to make clean up easier, apply it around the two nails.
Step 3 – MARBLE – Use a stamper for stamping nail art and put drops ofall three colours (Skinny Dippin’, Queen Of Congo and Tiger Tamer) on it, as shown below. Press the stamper lightly on the nail and then lift off gently. If you’re happy with the marble effect then leave it to dry. If you are not happy with your marble, you can stamp the polish again to get a different result. If you don’t have a stamper, apply the drops of polish directly on the nail and press a flexible piece of plastic (eg. Ziploc bag or stick sellotape to 2 fingers and press) over it and lift off gently – this will give you the same effect as the stamper.
Step 4 – FINISH - Clean up any nail polish that transferred on your skin using Precision Corrector and brush. Then seal the nails with a coat of In The Gloss Top Coat. You can speed up the drying time with Miracle Drops or Miracle Mist, these are great if you are short on time. Once the nails are dry, massage in a bit of Slick Tips Oil Pen for extra nourishment.
