Multicoloured Cartoon nails

I've been wanting to try cartoon nail art for ages. I've no idea who it was that came up with the design originally, but it's very cool.  

I started with a white base and then sponged on a bunch of colours, pink, green, blue, orange, coral and yellow.  I then outlined my nails in black and added the white reflection highlight lines. To finish it off I added a coat of Picture Polish G'Day Matte, matte top coat.

I wish I was able to do the black lines finer, but because I kept wanting to make the edges as neat as I could I just kept touching them up a little at a time, and eventually they were even enough - but also rather thick.





Have you tried cartoon nails? What do you think of the look?

  4. I cheat and use a sharpie (permanent black marker) for fine lines. As long as it's topcoated the wear time is great!

  15. Love this twist on cartoon nails! I'm about 99% sure Nancy Mc is the originator of cartoon nails - e.g. http://nancymcnails.co.uk/archive/2012/7 - if you're not familiar with her already, she is awesome.
