Alien Nail Art

Hey guys!

Well today I have details for these Alien nails I did. For these nails you will need:

  • OPI natural nail base coat
  • An alien green polish (Barry M Pole Position)
  • a white polish (china glaze white on white)
  • Alien Water decals ( I bought mine from ebay)
  • Your favorite top coat (Sally Hansen insta dri
  • A striping brush
  • A small bowl of water

Okay! Step one:

Paint your nails with one coat of OPI Natural Nail Base Coat, followed by two coats of your alien green on four fingers, leaving your ring finger bare. Paint this ring finger with one coat of white polish.

Step two:

Using a striping brush, pick up some of your alien green and form the sort of french tip, but at the top of your nail. Don’t worry too much about the neatness of the line at the bottom.

Step three:

Add one extra coat of white polish to the ring nail under the U-shape you just created, using this opportunity to clean up the edge of the green. Add a quick drying top coat to the nail and wait around 5 minutes for it to dry completely.

Step four:

Once the top coat is 100% dry, cut out your alien water decal from the sheet and place it in a small bowl of water for around 15 seconds, once done the decal should slide right off the paper backing. Place the decal on the nail, once you are happy with the placement remove any excess water using a cotton pad or piece of tissue.

Step five:

Use some Acetone remover to clean up excess decal and then add a thick coat of your favorite top coat to all nails! Ta Da, you’re all done!
