Winter Nail Art Series: Candy Swirl Nails

This design takes a little more precision than my usual pictorials.

It is still quite easy but you do need more of a steady hand.

I'm still trying to get the hang of doing curved shapes on my nails, straight lines are much easier for me...

I had this design on all of my nails but it would look great as accent nails.

It is a noticeable design and I received many comments on it.

Here is what you need:

- Base coat
- White nail polish
- Dark Pink nail polish
- Light Pink nail polish
- A nail striper (see DIY Nail art tools)
- Top coat

Step 1:
Apply base coat to the nail. Let dry. Apply white nail polish to the nail, you might need 2 coats to increase the opacity.

Step 2:

Wait several minutes to let the white polish settle (this prevents smudging). Using a nail striper(I used a toothpick) dipped in a dark pink polish, apply an "S" shape on the nail. I like to place a dot in the middle of the nail and curve the top part first and then curve the bottom part. I applied 2 dark pink swirls.

Step 3:

Using the same technique, this time using a light pink polish I made 2 more swirls. 

Step 4:
Allow the polish to dry for a few minutes, and apply some top coat to seal in the design. 

I could have curved the tips of the nails better but I thought it was good for a first attempt.
