DIY Nail Art Without any Tools! 5 Nail Art Designs – DIY Projects


So many nail art tools, but today we don’t
need them. I’ll show you how to create these five beautiful designs using only a nail polish
brush. Last time, we ditched the bus, now it’s time
to ditch the tram. Let’s go! Hey guys! That thing before, totally wasn’t
real, it was just a fun filming effect and you have to promise me that you’ll never try
something like that yourself! Promise? Ok. So today’s’ video is a nail art one, but not
just any. It’s a nail tutorial in which I won’t be using any nail art tools. This was
definitely one of my most requested videos and because I love you so much I made your
wish come true. We’re making five bright and fun designs, so take out your nail polish
and let’s get started. Nail art with or without tools, first step
is always the same. Apply a base coat! This will create a barrier between your nails and
nail polish, giving them protection against staining and nasty chemicals. And finally,
we are ready to apply some color. First we are making a lovely neon flower design!
Start by painting your nail white. Then take your yellow nail polish and wipe off the brush
really well. When you have just a small amount of color left on the brush, make a tiny patch
on the nail. Take another color, I chose orange and draw petals. The key to this design is
to wipe the brush well. If you have a lot of polish left on it, the color will just
run everywhere and make a giant blob. If you look at flowers, they are all a bit different
and unique. That’s why I love using a no tool technique for flower nails. I made five
cute flowers using different colors of polish. In the end apply a generous amount of the
fast drying top coat to seal your design. I think they just look so cute and happy.
Here on my right hand I used this design as an accent on my ring finger while painting
other nails with different neon colors. Now let’s make this adorable rainbow design.
Again start with white for the base. Then make stripes along the nail using different
colors of polish. Here I am making an orange stripe starting right on the edge of my nail.
Take a second color, make another stripe, overlapping the first one a bit. With this
overlapping technique, you can make thinner stripes just with a nail polish brush, no
stripers needed. I know these are not the correct rainbow colors, but I am just using
the colors that I have. Rainbow is made of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple – so
you can use any of them. You can totally leave your design like this because it already looks
super awesome, but I decided to add a little cloud on the tip of the nail. First I am drawing
it in black, but don’t worry, this will just be the edge to give the design that cartoon-ish
look. Now, I am going over it with white like so. And the result is perfect! It looks like
we have outlined the cloud with a precise brush when we actually didn’t. All we used
was a nail polish brush. Finish off with a layer of top coat to bring the design together
and add some shine. I like the happy colors and the cartoony feel of this rainbow design.
It looks pretty complicated but it’s seriously so easy to make.
On my thumb I am making this cool square pattern design. I went for the white base but you
can go for any color you like. Take the second color and again wipe the brush really well
to get rid of most of the nail polish. With what is left on the brush make a vertical
line along one side of the nail like so. If you want the line to be rather narrow, keep
your hand light and just barely touch the nail with the brush as you go along. If you
press the brush on the nail stronger, bristles tend to spread and you get a wider line, but
we don’t want that. Time for some horizontal stripes. Make the first one across the middle.
Then one above. Since we are having a small amount of polish on the brush you will probably
have to go over each stripe twice to make it opaque. But that’s actually awesome because
you can always perfect it the second time you go over it. Clean the skin around the
nail if needed, apply a shiny top coat and we are ready to rock this cool design. I love
how you can adjust it by switching up the colors. If you use black background white
or silver stripes it can look very sophisticated and elegant, perfect for a glamorous party.
Next we have a cute mouse design. I decided to start with a bright pink for the base.
When it dries make half of the circle on one tip of the nail or a bit more in the corner
like me. Make two short stripes for the ears, mine came out a bit long but ok… you can
keep them shorter and a bit more rounded. Color the inside of the ears with light pink
and make a nose using the same color. For the eyes I decided to use a toothpick. You
could try to make two dots with the polish brush but it’s difficult to get perfect
dot with a brush and toothpick is not a nail art tool so it still counts, right? In the
end make a little moustache and we are finished. This one is perfect for all you animal lovers,
it’s so adorable and super easy to make. If you change the shape of the ears you can
make a bear or a bunny in the same way. Lastly we are making a fun neon geometrical
design. As you can see, I am using white as a base color on almost all the nails. This
is because neon colors pop so much more on the white background! Even if you just want
to paint your nails solid yellow for example, I recommend to use white as a base, the difference
is huge! Take a second color and make a diagonal stripe starting on the other side so you get
a cross. Now make another stripe below the second one to cover the tip of the nail. With
the fourth color make a diagonal line parallel to the first, yellow one in my case. Apply
a top coat to finish this happy nail design. Again you can switch up the colors to fit
the occasion, mine are perfect for summer days!
Let me know in the comments, which design was your favorite. I think mine would be a
rainbow or a flower design. I really hope you like the video, give it a big thumbs up
