DIY Nail Art Tools with 5 Easy Nail Art Designs! How to Paint your Nails at Home!


Hmmm…. BOM BOM BOM Oh! Oh! No worries if you don’t have any nail art
tools. In this tutorial I’ll show you five amazing designs which you can make using things
you already have at home. Nail art tools can be super useful when making
creations on your nails, but today we’ll manage without them. Hey loves! It’s time for another nail art
tutorial and guess what?! It’s a no tool one! Well, we will be using tools, but only the
ones that you can find around your house. So we’re making five beautiful designs that
are super easy to make and look amazeballs. Don’t you agree? Well, if you do, here’s how
you can get them too… Sponges, tapes, band aids, pencils, pens,
straws, cue tips, matches, toothpicks, nails, screws, wire, paper pins and much more…
All that can be used to make fantastic nail designs art designs. I will show you five of them
now, so let’s get started. Before applying the polish you have to protect
your pretty nails with a base coat. This will help you keep them healthy and stain free! First let’s make this adorable baby penguin
design. Baby penguin’s fur is light grey, while adults are black. But, I am making a
fantasy penguin so I went for the blue base. Take a white polish and draw half of an oval
on the bottom half of your nail. Now we need to make some bigger dots and pins will help
us out here. These are great for pinning paper on a cork board, but they will work perfectly
as dotting tools too. I like to pin them in an eraser of a pencil, so they are easier
to hold. Then I just use them as a regular dotting tool: dip it in white and make two
large dots. Inside make two smaller black ones using smaller pins. Here I am using a
pencil to make two little white dots, and then a construction nail to make two even
smaller ones. I am in love with the anime inspired eyes. So adorable! All we have to do is draw a
small triangle for a beak and two legs on the tip of the nail. All we got left to do is apply
using a yellow polish and a pencil. Apply a generous amount of the fast drying top coat
to seal the design and add some shine. Isn’t this the cutest penguin you have ever seen?! Who doesn’t like Minions, right? Well I love
them so I had to make a Minion nail design. I am starting with white as a base… You’re
probably thinking what the heck… minions are yellow. No worries, I started with white
just because yellow polish pops so much more on top of white. White base makes them much
more vibrant and bold. Starting with the goggles: I am dipping the eraser of my pencil in silver
color and making two big dots close together like that. Inside the big silver dots make
smaller white ones using a q-tip. The last little detail for the eyes are the pupils,
which I am making using a bobby pin. Every Minion also needs some overalls, I am drawing
them very simply by sticking a piece of tape across the bottom part of the nail as a guide,
and then I am just coloring the tip in blue. Remove the tape and we’re done. To make the
mouth we’ll be using a straw. Cut a piece of straw away until you’re left with half
of a ring shape. Dip it in black and press it on your nail – voila our Minion just
got the biggest smile. To finish this lovely design apply a layer of top coat. I love how
cute and easy this design is! Perfect for an accent to a solid manicure or you can make
minions on all the nails. Let’s now move to the watermelon fields..
look at the way these hard working men are collecting watermelons so we can enjoy them..
#respect. These are definitely one of my favorite summer treats, so why not having this delicious
fruit on our nails? Start by applying one or two coats of red polish all over the nail
as a base. Here I will be using this sticker that is used for binders as a tool to create
the perfect French tip. Stick it on like this and color the bottom third of the nail in
white. Remove the sticker and wait until the white polish is completely dry. Place the
sticker a bit lower now and color the tip in green. Did you know that you can also use
a piece of wire for nail art? I found this one in my father’s garage and it works great.
So I am just making a few dark green patches on top of the lighter green. With a toothpick
dipped in black I am drawing some watermelon seeds. I don’t like my watermelon to have
too much seeds so I am just making a row of them. The only thing left to do is applying
a top coat and we’re finished. On my right hand I’ll show you how to incorporate
this lovely watermelon design into an easy and pretty mix & match mani. I painted my
nails in red except for the thumb and middle finger, which I colored green. On the ring
finger we are making a watermelon in the same way as before, just that here I am using a
band aid to make a French tip. As you can see it works just as great as the binder stickers.
This way you can create white French tips or maybe go for colored ones  – such an
easy and quick way to get a fun manicure. On the middle finger I am drawing some random
dark green lines just as the ones watermelons have. These don’t have to be perfect, in
fact, they should not be perfect. Using a paper clip and dotting motion I am drawing
some curved lines along the nail. I did the same design on my thumb. Lastly, with the
black give your watermelon a few seeds. On the pointer and pinky I am making a small
dot just to kind of bring together all the designs into a nice, fun watermelon mix and
match nail art. These nails look so summery and delicious, don’t they? I absolutely love nail art designs that include
blue skies and white fluffy clouds. Here’s a cute variation that we are making today.
Start by applying a medium blue polish as a base. Time to prove that matches can work
as a great dotting tool too – just dip one in a white and make a group of dots close
together until you get a cloud shape. Make several clouds to fill all the empty spaces
on your nail but make sure they are big enough, because we still have to draw their pretty
faces on. I am drawing faces to only three of the clouds but you can do it on all if
you prefer. With a construction nail make a pair of eyes. For the mouth I am using a
straw, just like I did for the Minion. I really love using straw for such curved lines. Like
that, our clouds are now happy and smiley. To add some extra sweetness to the clouds,
I am drawing cheeks to each of them. Just dip a match into light pink, make two dots
and our clouds are finished, looking so cute. Well, one thing is missing and that’s a
top coat which will seal everything in place and protect the design from chipping. How
gorgeous are these? Ahhh… I am obsessed. Last but definitely not least we are making
this ocean design, perfect for the summer days.
Paint your nail in light blue. Deep down on the bottom of the sea we have to make the
blue darker and mysterious because the light can’t reach it in all it’s power. So let’s
make a gradient using 3 shades of blue and a cosmetic sponge. Dab the sponge on the nail
and here it is – a beautiful blue gradient. Clean the skin around your nail with a q-tip
soaked in acetone. Our ocean is now ready to be decorated with sand, fish, corals and
all that cool stuff. In the corner I am making a little golden
patch for the sand. For the fish we first need to make a big dot. An awesome tool for
this is a wooden dowel pin. I moved recently and got so many of these when I purchased
furniture. So dip it in white and press on the nail to form a perfect dot. For the tail
I am using a toothpick and simply drawing a triangle with it. I made my fish white here
but now I am coloring it in yellow. If yellow is used directly on top of blue the color
you get is normally more green -ish so a white base is a must! Now our little fishy is bright
and vibrant! Add some oxygen baubles using white polish and a piece of wire. For the
eyes, dip the toothpick in black and make a simple dot. To fill in the empty part of
the nail you can draw more fish, or a coral like me. For this I will be using an old pen
that stopped working. Dip it in red nail polish and draw several curved lines using stippling
motion. Super easy! To make the coral look more realistic I am making a lot of small
white dots all over. Once again I am using a construction nail to do it. I tell you guys
– a garage is a great place to look for nail art tools. Lastly apply a layer of the
fast drying top coat to protect this masterpiece! This design is just super interesting, full
and summery. Makes me wanna travel to some exotic places so badly. Here’s a little recap of everything you can
use for your nail art, and you most probably already have at home. There’s surely much
else you can use to create awesome designs, just check out the back of your drawers, I
think you can find many interesting things. So these were my 5 nail art ideas using DIY
tools. I really hope you like them and let me know which one was your favorite. I really
like how all of them turned out, but probably my faves are the penguin and the fish. Also,
another thing that I wanted to address is that a few days ago, I noticed that we’ve
hit one million subscribers, which honestly feels so crazy even me saying it. I cannot
believe that one million of you guys have hit the subscribe button on my channel and
the only thing that I can say to you is thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. You
guys bring so much happiness and excitement into my life. Filming videos is one of my
favorite things to do in life and knowing that you guys love to watch them is just a
dream come true to me. So thank you guys for letting me live my dream. I’m sending you
a big virtual hug and I’ll talk to you soon! Bye! Try to find alternative uses for things. All
you have to do is be creative, curious and most importantly – have fun with it!
