By learning a nail art technique used to do theses Ruffian Ikat Nails you’ll be able to create nail designs as funky as Madeline Poole nails. Or, at least you can get very close. No special skills required, just a pair of scissors and a pack of nail strips. I bet you do have a couple of packs of nail strips* (or, nail wraps) at home, that you don’t know what to do with. Here’s their chance to shine!
Did you know that in addition to just putting nail wraps straight on your nails to fake some nail art, you can actually do some pretty cool things with them? You can use them for some kind of hybrid nail art, where you do the easy parts yourself and the complex steps are nail wraps. The results can be truly amazing!
Check out the how-to below:
- Paint your nails in the desired colour, preferably one that matches one of the shades of the nail strip. We opted for a bright blue to match blue details of the Ikat Incoco nail strips.
- Select the size of the strips you’ll be using and attach them to your nails leaving nail polish exposed in a ruffian shape as pictured.
- Attach all the strips. For detailed explanation check out this tutorial on how to apply nail wraps like a pro.
- Attach studs as pictured and secure the whole design with top coat. Let it dry. Done!
No clean up, no time spent drawing intricate patterns, no extra long drying time required. How easy this nail art technique is?! And most importantly, even beginners can achieve quite impressive results. Nail strips can be used pretty much for any kind of details – chevrons, french tips, squares, etc. Any shape that you can cut out and stick onto your nails, even little animals, if you wish so.
