Eva Jenkins demonstrates how to do Unicorn nail art.


Start by creating an ombre fade with white and pink.


Apply one white stripe and one pink stripe of paint onto a makeup sponge. Press onto the nail and repeat until desired hue has been reached.


With a white striper, draw the outline of the cloud and unicorn.


Using a small art brush, paint the eyes and mouth on the cloud and the unicorn. Add a mane, tail and hooves for the unicorn using hot pink, green, and yellow. Apply glitter from the base to the middle of the nail. Finish with a clear top coat.
