Purple Fade Aztec Nails

Finished Purple Fade Aztec Nails

What you need:

  • Nail Art Brush (buy it in a set with a dotter tool here)
  • White (we used M.A.C. Vestral White, no longer sold)
  • Light Purple (we used Essie Lilacism, buy it here)
  • Medium Purple (we used OPI Do You Lilac It?, buy it here)
  • Dark Purple (we used Ardene's Violet, see it here)
  • Black (we used Essie Licorice, buy it here)
  • Base Coat and Top Coat (we used Essie, buy the top coat here, and base coat here)

What to do:

  1. Start with clean, dry nails. Paint each nail with base coat.
  2. Paint all nails white. Two coats may be required.
  3. Leaving about 1/2 a cm of space in the middle of your nail, paint the light purple from the middle to the edge of your nails, touching it up with the nail art brush.
  4. Once the light purple has dried leave a bit of light purple showing and paint on the medium purple to the edge of your nail.
  5. Once the medium purple has dried leave a bit of medium purple showing and paint on the darkest purple to the edge.
  6. There is no other way to explain the designs other than to look at the picture (or just be creative!), but once the purple fade has dried paint on the black using the nail art brush to ensure the lines are smooth and exact.
  7. Paint on top coat after ensuring your nails are dry so there is no running, and allow to dry!
