Smiley Face Nail Art Tutorial


Here is my version of smiley face nail art, a design I've been meaning to do for AGES...

Smiley Face Nails inspired by Rihanna

It was supposed to have some fimo smiley faces in it, however when I tried to use them they just seemed too big and were difficult to curve around my nails.  I got in a huff and just did a freehand version instead.

I have little patience for fimo slices to be honest  :/

Anyway, here are the details, and as ever, click on the video to watch how it was done..



Red Polish - SpaRitual 'Hunk of Burning Love'  3 coats
Yellow Polish - Barry M 'Lemon Ice Cream' 5 coats (which is ridonkulous!  I've ordered Lemon Fizz by China Glaze because it applies in 2 or 3 apparently)
Topcoat - Color Club, pretty much hate it but I'm using it up for tutorials.
Acrylic paints by FolkArt and DecoArt (FolkArt are way better)

Brush - Teeny tiny one from an art store with most of the bristles chopped off.

And of course if you're rubbish at doing your other hand just paint them all red with the polka dots and leave it at that!

Thanks for watching
