Movie Nails

There have been so many amazing movie releases lately that I was inspired to do these adorable movie nails!

What you’ll need for this tutorial is

– a base/top coat
– a white, yellow, gold and red nail polish
– a black striper (if you don’t have this you can use a toothpick in black polish)
– a toothpick
– a q-tip/cotton bud

After applying a base coat to protect the natural nail and allowing it to fully dry, apply two coats of a white polish.

Once this is dry, take your thumb and ring finger and add vertical red stripes the whole way across the nail. Do this by using a striper or by a toothpick.

If you are not confident with toothpicks or stripers, you can use this method. Wait until the white nail polish has COMPLETELY dried then apply multiple thin strips of tape on the nail. Paint the whole nail red, leaving a small section at the top. When the nail polish is tacky (not completely dry) slowly peel off the tape one by one and you should be left with perfect stripes!

Once the polish on the thumb and ring finger are dry, dip a cotton bud in yellow polish.

Start dabbing the cotton bud with polish onto the top of the nail, repeat this process many times to build up layers. The messier, the better!

Repeat this step very lightly and only a few times with a gold polish to add depth and definition.

Then add a black line to separate the stripes and yellow. Now you have perfect popcorn nails!

On the remaining fingers make four black lines, two on the side of the nail and then another two slightly in from that.

Make 2 or 3 horizontal stripes between these lines (depending on how long your nails are)

Then make many stripes in between the two thin lines to make a film strip!

Once these have all dried, add a top coat to seal in the design and stop it from chipping.

And that’s it!
Picture perfect nails which are simple and cute!
