Hi everyone! I’m super happy to have another
nail art video for you today. We are going to make 5 cute designs and the only tool you’re
going to need is a toothpick. So, we’re going to make a flower, a splatter design, gradient
dots, leopard print, and googly eyes. Sounds great? Let’s get started!
You can make countless different nail designs using a toothpick. As said, I am going to
show you five of them today. Let’s kick off by applying a base coat to protect our nails
– this must be a first step in any manicure. First design is a leopard print, but to make
it a bit different and funky I am switching usual brown shades for something brighter!
Apply two coats of white polish to begin with. While we are at it, let’s learn a little toothpick
trick: Toothpicks normally have a very pointy end, which is great if you want to make tiny
dots. But if you would like to create larger dots, simply cut one end with scissors. Make
a few bigger red dots on your nail, leaving enough space between each. The circles don’t
have to be perfect! Dot several times in a row to make the print big enough if you need
to. Now, go in with a black polish and outline the red dots by making some brackets and some
C shapes around them randomly. Here, I am making brackets around the dot, but here I
decided to make a C shape. Don’t worry if some larger areas appear blank, we are going
to fill them in a sec! Leopard spots grouped in circles are called rosettes. Leopard’s
head and legs are covered in black spots only, while the rosettes, which are those brackets
and c shape patches, cover the rest of the leopard’s body. Just make black patches and
dots where you find an empty space. The spotted coat allows leopard to blend in with surrounding
trees and bushes. If you want a fun design which never goes out of fashion leopard print
is the way to go! Lastly, apply a generous amount of a fast drying top coat. I painted
an entire hand in this design. I switched the red for different colors on each finger
and it looks amazing, don’t you think? Now let’s make a splatter design! Start off
with any background color of your choice; I went for a minty green which is one of my
favorite colors. Then pick two colors for splatters. My first color is white. Try choosing
something in contrast with the background. If the splash is too similar to the background
color the design won’t turn out as pretty. Draw a splash by gently dotting and dragging
the toothpick. I’m basically painting a rounded shape with thinner splashes reaching out.
Keep the ends of splashes rounded to get this cute cartoon splatter. Around the splatter
draw a few dots here and there to represent the drops. Then make another splatter on the
other side of the nail! I have place for only two but you can make more splashes if you
want! For any design in this tutorial, you don’t need to have the same colors of polishes
as me, just use what you have at home and the final results will be just as gorgeous!
Here you can make splashes on all of the nails or just on one as an accent nail! This one
is just so old school! I love how this nail design turned out, so summery and fresh!
Third is this lovely flower design, perfect for all you girly girls out there. I think
it looks absolutely adorable! Apply two coats of white polish to start off. Then make a
few larger hot pink dots all over the nail and make sure you leave enough space between
them for leafs. They don’t need to be perfect or same sizes. We can find flowers of all
shapes and sizes! Next draw smaller lilac dots on top and make a swirl so that the two
colors mix together in a spiral shape. You can add a few more petals to make the flowers
a bit bigger and bolder like me. Time to draw some leafs. Take a green polish and draw two
oval patches next to each flower, One on each side. For some highlighting add a hint of
light pink to each flower, this will give some dimension and the flowers will look more
realistic. Same with leafs — highlight them with a slightly different shade of green.
I am using minty green this time, but if you have a darker green the effect will turn out
even better. On my to do list: – need to buy some dark green polish! Seal the design with
a fast drying top coat! This one is the most girly and vintage looking out of the five!
I like it a lot! For my next design I am making googly eyes!
Start off with any darker nail polish color. I am using this medium blue as I think black
would be a bit too harsh for the summer. Then draw pairs of white dots with a toothpick.
You can make as many pairs as you like. I like a lot of them as you can tell! You can
make the eyes bigger if you prefer too! Now you need to make smaller black dots inside
the white ones. I like to point both black dots of each pair in the same direction so
that you can see which eyes belong to a pair. Don’t worry if your toothpick is not rounded
– mine has actually a triangular shape. Dip it in a polish a few times and let it dry.
Your toothpick will get a perfect rounded tip! Apply a fast drying top coat and your
googly eyes design is complete! Lastly I am making this gradient dots design, which is
so cute and summery because of the bright colors. Start off with two coats of white
polish. I am using two colors of polish for the dots, but you can use as many colors as
you like. Start making larger dots on the tip of the nail. Dots must be smaller and
smaller as you move up. Also, make sure that dots are more concentrated on the tip and
less concentrated towards the top of the nail. This will create a nice gradient effect. Switch
the nail polish color and dot it on the blank areas, still making larger and more concentrated
dots on the tip. Don’t worry if some dots overlap! I think the combination of this peachy
orange and green polish is so beautiful! You can already stop here and leave the upper
part of the nail white! I like it so much already. Anyway, I decided to show you how
the design looks if you dot the whole nail surface! See how I am making tiny little dots
here. After dipping the toothpick into the polish, dot a few times on a piece of a plastic
bag or something, this way the majority of polish is gone and with what is left on the
toothpick you’ll be able to create very small dots. Finish the design with a fast drying
top coat! This design is so easy, and it’s done in no
time! Perfect for girls that want something special on their nails but don’t want to sit
for hours to make it! Like myself! These were my five nail art designs using
a toothpick as the only tool. Pretty cool, ha? I really hope you’ll try out some of these
designs yourself and if you do so, please share your recreations with me on Twitter,
Facebook or Instagram. Also if you want me to do more nail art designs using a toothpick
