DIY Nail Art: Stripes and Lines

Hello again, nail art lovers! If you've mastered the polka dot and are ready for your next challenge, why not try your hand at stripes and lines? This design is a little more intricate but still very achievable for nail art beginners. Plus, stripes and lines offer endless possibilities for customization and creativity. Ready to get started? Here's your step-by-step guide to creating striped and line nail art at home.

Step-by-Step Guide to DIY Stripes and Lines Nail Art:

1. Gather Your Supplies: For this design, you'll need a base coat, a base color polish, one or more additional polish colors for your lines, a top coat, and a thin nail art brush or striping brush. If you don't have a brush, you can also use striping tape or even a thin, steady hand!

2. Prep Your Nails: Start with clean, dry nails. Shape your nails to your preferred style and apply a base coat to protect your nails and ensure a smoother polish application.

3. Apply Your Base Color: Choose a base color that will contrast well with your stripes. Apply two coats, letting each one dry fully before moving on to the next.

4. Paint Your Stripes: Dip your nail art brush or striping brush into one of your stripe colors. Carefully draw a line from the base of your nail to the tip. You can draw the line straight, diagonally, or even in a zigzag — the choice is yours! If you're using striping tape, apply the tape where you want the lines to be, paint over it, then peel it off.

5. Add More Stripes: If you want more than one stripe per nail, repeat step 4 with your other colors. Remember to let each stripe dry before adding the next to prevent the colors from smearing together.

6. Apply Top Coat: After all the stripes are completely dry, seal your design with a clear top coat. This will add shine, smooth out any minor imperfections, and protect your nail art.

Congratulations, you've just created a striped nail art design! This style is versatile and can be dressed up or down, making it perfect for any occasion. Feel free to experiment with different colors, stripe widths, and orientations — the possibilities are endless with this design!
