How To Do Scales

Using:-Nicka Nail Enamel in “Cotton Candy”
-Silver Nail Art Brush
-Hurricane Nail Art Paint in “White”
-Toothpick
Paint your nails a base color with as many coats as needed. Normally one is good enough since there’s going to be some coverage.
 
After the last coat of polish is applied wait a few minutes and then draw lines lengthwise before the base color finishes drying completely.  

After the last coat of polish is applied wait a few minutes and then draw lines lengthwise before the base color finishes drying completely. After you finish your lines take a toothpick and drag it lightly across the nail, perpendicular to the lines. Do this all the way down the nail. Let it dry completely before using a top coat.


 Sometimes the polish bunches up at the end, which you can see it mine. What you can do is after it’s DONE drying, you can use a finger to just press it down to flatten it. You have to wait till it’s done drying otherwise you’ll end up with a fingerprint in it. I used two colors here, but you can use one or even more than two. This looks weird on just one finger that cose up, but it looks cool when your whole hand is done.
