The completed Drip Nails.

Why we love it:

These nails give the impression that you just dripped nail polish on to your tips, and let it run down your nails (without the mess!). We love the look of these nails in light and dark shades of the same colour, as well as with neon drips over a nude background - a trend we love for this summer. Black on white or grey also has a cool look to it! Try it out and send us a picture! 

What you need:

  • Nail Art Brush and Dotter Tool (buy it in a set here)
  • Dark Blue (we used Nails Inc. Baker Street, buy it here)
  • Light Blue (we used China Glaze Kinetic Candy, buy it here)
  • Medium Blue (we used OPI No Room for the Blues, 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 the lighter blue shade. Two coats may be required.
  3. Paint a dark blue tip on your nails - don't worry if it is messy at this point!
  4. With the Dotter tool, make 2-4 dots (depending on how big your nails are) at various heights between the middle of your nail, and the tip.
  5. With the Nail Art brush, use the darker blue paint to connect the darker tip to your dark blue dots. making what looks like drips down the tips of your nails.
  6. Paint on top coat after ensuring your nails are dry so there is no runs in the polish, and allow to dry!
