First choose 2 colours for your nails. I chose a mint colour and a darker turquoise.

Now paint your nail the lighter colour and wait until completely dry.

After this paint onto a flat surface (newspaper or magazine i recommend as nail varnish is going on it) a pool of each colour, making sure each colour touches at the edge.

Now with a toothpick swirl the colours together to get the ‘ombre’ affect.


After this, with a sponge dip it in the varnish a few times until evenly covered.


Now press over finger and press down. You can repeat this until you get the coverage you want.

When you have done this and your nails are dry get a cotton wool bud or brush, dip in acetone and wipe away the excess layers.

2. After your coat has dried, paint on, using a black nail art pen, draw on any aztec design. You can find loads here on Pinterest!
I chose to start of with a half rectangle.
