Festival Nail Art, Henna Inspired – Video Tutorial

Festival Nail Art

Festival Nail Art

I was recently sent some items from Boohoo, including the Models Own – Lilac Dream Nail Polish to come up with a festival nail art for this summer. I looked around and a lot of festival nail art seems to include simple daisy nails or aztec prints so I thought I would move away from that and come up with a more unique idea. I do lots of different nail art posts so if you are looking for some nail inspiration check out some of my previous designs here.

I love henna designs and they always look so boho chic, really pretty and a little bit hippy for my festival nail art. I thought that the Models Own Lilac Dream would make a great base for a loose and free gradient background mixes with the gorgeous baby blue from Essence – If I were a Boy. As you will see in the video I used the fantastic Essence Nail Art Tattoo Pen to draw on the detail. I will probably review this on it’s own in the future as it is fantastic, for such a cheap item it draws on brilliantly, doesn’t clog up and gives thin accurate lines. You must apply a top coat after to protect your design with the Essence Nail Art Tattoo Pen though as it doesn’t last long without.

I really hope that you like my nail art tutorial videos, please like and subscribe on Youtube :)

Let me know if there are any nail art videos you would like to see me make in the future.

    That looks really fantastic, I like it a lot! Very pretty! If you have to do your own nails, it isn’t easy to do two hands right?

    Cute idea! I may use tape like you did to wrap up my nails next time while painting them! I can’t believe i’ve never thought of that!
