Now place white nail paint near it and mix quickly to get a lighter shade. Mix as much as you want to get the shade/s of your choice.
Straw for Splatter Manicure

Take a straw-piece and dip it into a nail polish of your choice. Then blow it onto your already base-coated nails. You can blow multiple colours for a beautiful splatter effect.
Fan Brush for Stripes
Thin stripes on nails look good and classy. First of all paint your nails with the base coat of your choice. When it dries, take a fan brush and dip its tips in another colour of your choice. Brush it horizontally on your nail to get thin stripes. You can make many stripes, once the first set dries.
Black Gel Pen for Nail Arts
Buy a good quality black gel pen to draw any design on your nails. The ones with fine tips are better and precise. Wait for at least 30 minutes for the design to dry completely.
Eyeshadow Applicator for Ombre Nails
