Hi everyone, welcome to my citrus design tutorial :) I first made this design for my entry in the Good Enough To Eat contest at Nail Polish Art Addiction, a few months ago. The shape of a sliced citrus fruit has always amazed me for some reason, so for the contest I made this exotic, abstract pattern. A few of you dear readers requested a tutorial for it, so here it finally is :) Now go pick three delicious, summery polishes, your nail art brushes and do some nail art!
Then use your nail art brush and a contrasting, opaque polish or acrylic paint to draw a few circle shapes. Spread them evenly on the the surface to make a nice composition. Then devide each circle in 'slices' and round of the two outer corners of each 'slice'.
Clean your brush (or use a new one) and use a third color to suround each circle shape with a line, leave a small gap between the circle and the line, if you can. Then fill in the gaps with the same color and let the whole nail dry for a few minutes.
The surface is still a bit bumpy, so to make it smoother and protect your design, apply a topcoat. At last clean up the excess polish on your skin and you've got yourself a fresh and juicy design ;)
Tip: To clean your nail art brush(es), pour a little bit of nail polish remover in a small dish or the lid of the bottle. Let your brush soak in it for a few seconds and dab it a few times on a cotton pad. Repeat this until your brush is clean.
I would absolutely love to see your attempt on my design, so feel free to leave a link to your creation in the comment section!
