Hey Guys! Today I’m showing you how to do this simple overlapping triangle nail design! It’s super colorful and creative and pretty easy too!
Start off with a base coat to protect your nails!
Next add a neon yellow or lime as the base color. You could also use a very pale color or white, either would work.
Next use a small nail art brush to paint pink triangles on each nail. Paint some at the tips and some at the base of the nails to give variety. You can use nail polish, but I used acrylic paint.
Now, use a blue nail polish or paint to paint another triangle, but overlap it on the pink one. You want it to be just on top so the tips or the side overlap, but only a small part.
When you mix pink and blue, you get purple, so to emphasize the purple, just mix the two colors together on a mixing plate, and paint over the overlapped area. It’s kinda like cheating with the overlapping, but whatever!
I kinda got carried away with photos, so don’t yell at me through the comments, just look at them. Now the nails are matte because acrylic paint dries without any shine, but once you add a topcoat, your design is now sealed in, and that paint isn’t going anywhere! Also you have a nice shine to your nails!
I took a bunch more pictures, so let’s admire them together! This is a very simple look, which you guys told me you liked in the last nail tutorial. I did this look like 6 months ago but never got around to turning it into a video, but I finally did, so here you are!
This will be one of my last photo nail tutorials because now I have a fancy new camera that isn’t stupid like my old one, so I will be doing video nail tutorials soon!
