Outlined Nails Trend

outline nails

From french manicures to half moon nails, precision nails have been around for a while, but outline nails are as creative as it gets. I always see new nail trends as an opportunity to get out my nail art supplies, and like most trends i saw this one as a not so complicated, or is it!!  While I like to think my nail art skills are getting better, I’m pretty sure that achieving this look would require a stencil and some steady hands.

Plus, the fact that my nails grow so fast, it might be hard to maintain this look. I guess i can use a gel polish to avoid chipping, but what about my cuticles.  This might be annoying after a while, but its soo cute to look at. What do you say, would you try this trend? Watch an outline nails tutorial or see how you can achieve the look courtesy of our friends at blog.lulus.com:

 

 Start with a few coats of your base color. Let your nails dry completely. Then simply take your nail art pen and outline your entire nail bed. It might be hard to get close to the cuticle without making a mess, but if you do smudge the black, simply use a cotton swab and nail polish remover to clean off the excess!

 For the accent nail, we did a simple studding technique with microbeads. You simply take your toothpick and dip the tip into your clear nail polish. Then touch the tip of the toothpick to a single microbead to pick it up. and then touch it to a wet nail to stick it in place.
