Dedicated to the infinite joys of nail art and design: handpaint, airbrush, colored acrylics and gels.


Punctuated in Purple

Step-by-step by Lee Barnes, Nails N Flight, Lanham, Md.


1. Polish a third of the nail diagonally in purple.

2. While the purple is still wet, polish a third of the nail diagonally in olive green and a third in teal, blending the colors together on the nail.

3. Using a striper brush and yellow paint, make lines at the top, bottom, and sides of the nail.

4. Using a striper brush and black paint, continue to make lines. Do the same with purple paint. Using a stylus, apply white dots randomly. Apply gold glitter. Apply top coat.
