Nail Art: Scalloped Stripes

Scalloped Stripes Nail Art Design Nail Art Using Dotting Tool OPI Retro Summer 2016 Collection

With the unofficial start to summer here, bold and fun nail art designs are a great way to brighten up any look that you may have. This scalloped striped design can be customized with any colour combination you wish and is relatively easy to achieve.

To begin, apply two coats of the base colour you choose (in this case, the pastel yellow) and allow to dry.

Next, put a few drops of another colour on aluminium foil and with a medium-large dotting tool, create a line of dots near the base of your nail. With a third colour, repeat the previous step but place the next line of dots above the first line (make sure that these lines overlap a bit). Repeat again with a fourth colour.

Once the first set of lines is complete, take the dotting tool and the base colour you used to create another line of dots over the third line you created. Then repeat the whole process again, but no need to do another line of dots in the base colour shade (this will ensure that you have a scalloped edge near the tip of your nail).

Allow your design to dry for 5-10 minutes and then apply a top coat.
