Step-by-Step Nail Art Tutorial

1
This week our challenge was to create a street art-inspired set of nails with a pastel palette only with Orly products. I love graffiti’s and got inspired from them this week. The street artists usually deliver a message with their art so I decided to deliver my own message with this set of nails. These are the pictures that I got inspired of. The first picture inspired me to play with the shape of the nails and make them look like spilled paint. The other pictures inspired me to create the designs on the nails. At the two thumbs I painted a cat and I tiger. I believe that everyone has a strong side but sometimes we forget that and we become weak against our problems. The message that I want to deliver in this set of nails is that we always need to be strong and hope in our life. That is why one hand says the word “life” and the other “hope”. A cat acts like a tiger when she is in danger so she brings out her strong side against her fears. Use only regular polish for this set.
