Simple Summer Nail Art Looks As Seen On New Day Cleveland!
Zoya Creative Director, Rebecca Isa, was recently featured on New Day Cleveland (Fox 8), where she talked all things nail art! Want to see just how easy and wearable elegant nail art can be? Each of the looks featured on the show are listed below - easy to follow tutorials included! New to nail art? Here are a few quick tips...
- Choose colors in the same color family. Tone on tone looks are super chic and aren't as in-your-face as nail art with high contrast shades.
- Play with texture and layering. As you probably know, textured polishes are all the rage right now! Painting one or two accent nails with a textured shade adds an extra element of interest that will take your mani to the next level. The same thing goes with layering!
- Don't get discouraged! If at first you don't succeed, try again. It does take some practice but once you get the hang of it, it's a lot of fun!
Now let's dive into the looks!
Look 1: Abstract Half Moon - This look features Zoya Nail Polish in Rue and Brigitte. We used reinforcement rings to create the outline for this look. Follow the instructions for a traditional half moon mani, but offset the moon for a fun look!
Look 2: The "petal" - swiping a vertical stripe along the side of the nail helps to elongate and give the illusion of a longer, leaner finger. The look shown below features the petal nail art look with Taylor & Normani. See more color combinations we love here.
Here's another fun look using #ZoyaNaturel :
Chalkboard Nails (Fishtail French Tips)
Look 3: Reverse Half Moon Nair Art featuring Chantal and Bar (Magical PixieDust Formula). To get the look - take a reinforcement sticker, cut it in half, and position it at the base of your nail. Fill in the gap with the textured, glittery shade and let dry slightly. Remove sticker when polish is still slightly wet.
Look 4: Glittering Half Moon with Zoya Rue and Ginni (Magical PixieDust Formula). Use your reinforcement stickers as a guide and outline the half moon at the base of your nail. Remove the sticker and fill in your half moon - you may need to use a smaller nail art or paint brush depending on the size of your nail bed.
Look 5: Petal Nail Art with Zoya Ling and Stassi from the Tickled & Bubbly Collection for Summer. See the step by step guide HERE!
