How to do a cow print on nails?
Here is a simple quick tutorial on how you can do cow print or animal print nails:
With this guide, you’ll be able to effortlessly create a cow print pattern on your nails.
You’ll need the following items: a transparent base coat, white nail polish, black nail polish, a transparent top coat, and a tool for dotting, such as a Q-tip or a metal dotting tool.
Begin by applying a transparent base coat to shield your nails. Next, apply two or three layers of the white nail polish to achieve a solid finish.
To create the spots, pour some black nail polish onto a piece of paper to prepare for dotting. You can create three or four prints on each nail by simply dabbing the polish onto the nail and then gently shaping it as desired.
What’s wonderful about this pattern is that it’s done freehand, so the shape of each print is entirely up to you. It’s supposed to look somewhat irregular, so don’t worry about making it perfect.
As you work, you can remove any excess polish and then clean up the edges with nail polish remover.
Lastly, apply a transparent top coat to preserve your design, and voila, you’re finished!
By applying this simple method, you can achieve any of these cow print nail designs that you’ll adore!
