These pointy nails by Tina Alberino were inspired by a comic book villain.
Shape the nails into a slight point. Paint the nails with white gel-polish with a red gel-polish streak along one of the outer edges to the free edge.
Either use a nail art stamp or an airbrush with a stencil to add a checkered pattern on the red toward the free edge and black hearts on the white toward the eponychium (shown are Bundle Monster stamps).
Use a fine, long-bristled brush to apply a line between the red and white, flicking the brush occasionally to create thorns. Also apply the line in between the checkered pattern and the edge of the nail, so the nail gives the impression of resembling the folds in the fabric of Harley Quinn’s evening dress.
