Easy Nail Art For Beginners: Metallic Accent Nails

Easy Nail Art For Beginners: Metallic Accent Nails

We love nail art tutorials that are not only easy but minimal, thereby, doable too. Less is more, and I feel the concept of accent nails is something amazing.

Accent nails are basically eye-catching and a creative expression for your nails. Choose any finger (index, middle, ring or pinky) but I gotta say, the ring finger definitely catches a lot of attention. This is also the finger in which you wear rings (engagement rings or otherwise) and it’d be a great way to highlight both the nail art and the ring.

The concept:

Metallics are great in totality, but we can really go over the top with it. Here we tried mixing classics and metallic together. Our idea was to bring a sense of elegance and creativity at the best, and we believe that nail artist Harsha Rawat, did just that.

How To: Metallics and Classics make for ideal Accent Nails

  1. Apply a Basecoat, followed a brush of white—we used Snow White from French and Nudes Collection, Bio Sculpture.
  2. Obviously, you can leave one finger out if you want the base to be nude. We put 1 tiny coat of Snow White on the ring finger, for uniformity.
  3. Metallics are eye-catching, so make sure you apply these on the middle/ring finger.

  4. Now as you can see in the pictures; Harsha made most of OPI’s Sparkle-icious by taking bit of glitter from the polish and pasting them one by one of the nail with the help of a tool.
  5. Once satisfied by placing the glitter particles on your tips, apply the same paint as usual. You can put about 3 coats to make sure it stands out.

  6. Clean up your act with the help of tools, or earbuds/nail file if you’re doing this at home. Again, make sure your tools are sterilized before using them.
Last word: I found this particular look to be quite versatile. This can be appropriate for both day and night.

The basics:

It’s very important you make sure your nails are clean, buffed and filed before you start any nail tutorial. For me, Harsha, the nail artist at Imperial Salon prepped my nails Apricot Kernel Scrub, Potpourri Aqua Soak and Hand Butter. She also used sanitizers as well as a cuticle oil for healthy, strong nails. If you’re big on nail art at home, I suggest you buy basics like nail hardeners, cuticle cream, and oils to make sure you do it right.

About Bio Sculpture

One of the differential factors that make Bio Sculpture a touted brand is because it is the ONLY brand to have undergone an independent clinical trial and to have received a 5-star safety rating. The spa collection (can be used at home) has a variety of collections, and each of these pigments lasts for about 10 days (without fading). On the plus side, the spa collection contains botanicals, vitamins, and anti-oxidants. With a highly trained staff, the Imperial Salon is a great place to try The Bio Sculpture Gel Range. The coating is flexible, protects and conditions your nails and lasts for about 3 weeks.  All nail polishes are Toluene free, DBP and formaldehyde free.

 

Imperial Salon

One of my favorite places in the city, Imperial Salon is open to all guests who appreciate luxury and service. Be it pedicures, facials, hair spas or bridal make-up, the staff is so well trained that every experience at the Salon is bright and indulgent.
