Paisley Nails Tutorial!

There are a butt ton of pictures.  So let's get down to it!  

Polishes used:

Spoiled: Distant Memory
LA Colors: (some unnamed silver sparkle)
LA Colors: Nail art polish in white.

 1: I painted my nails a base color of Spoiled Distant Memory.  Two coats were used here. I also used a top coat of Seche Vite so that it would not smear during my nail art.

2: Take either a nail art brush, a toothpick, or a nail art pen...

3: Make a swoop on the bottom of your nail.  Think half a tear drop.

4: Then make a center to the half a teardrop you just made.

5: Next make another half a tear drop.

6: Make another half of a teardrop, and on the bottom bring to curve one way.

 7: Make a center for this tear drop.

8: Take a dotting tool (or use a toothpick if you don't have one)

9:  Make TINY TINY dots in the space between the center of your crooked teardrop, and the outline.  The tinier your dots, the daintier your paisley will look.

10: Do the same thing in the bottom half of a teardrop

11:  I thought it looked boring so I decided to add some sparkle!

12: I dabbed some sparkle in the centers, and on the outsides of the designs.

Top coat and you're COMPLETE!  Let me know what you think!
