You can pick any two contrasting colors. Apply the lighter shade to all the nails and give it some time to dry. Once it is dried, apply a second coat of the same shade and after that use a dotter tool to apply the contrasting polish while swirling it around and there you get those marble nails.

This one is for the longer nails. Make sure your nails are smooth and file them evenly to make your nail naturally rounded shape. Starting about a quarter inch from the cuticle, apply a darker shade. Let it dry before adding the top coat. This Tough to Paint Nail Art Ideas gives a sexy and feminine look.

Color Blocking

Color blocking is another nail art technique. Although, it looks simple but it can be quite complex. You need to apply three quarters of stripping tape on each of the nails. Start applying two coats of chosen nail polish to the portion of the nail above the tape and let it dry. Gently remove the tapes using tweezers. Use a contrast color for the base.

Elegant Nude

Use a nude paint to color the nails and once it is dried, use white paint to draw a curved line from the bottom corner to upwards towards the diagonally opposite corner. Repeat the same on the other side to create a curved X shape. Repeat the process by drawing another line underneath the first line following the same curve. You can use some nail crystals to decorate the same.

Christmas Tree

With the fall of winters, how can we forget the Christmas season, the easiest of the lot. You can use a pale green as the base and a forest green for the tree with some golden glitters to add that festive sparkle. To create the look, all you need to do is apply the base coat followed by two layers of the light green shade and let it dry for overnight. Cut one-to-two inch segments of tape in half and place the straight edge along the nails to get that triangle shape. After you are done, paint a coat of the deep green shade over the tape to create the tree. Add a layer of golden glittering nail polish to add that ornamenting look. Peel the tape off for that sparkling triangle. Or the superhero?
