This mani gives a new meaning to killer nail art! Sarah Elmaz of Get Buffed Nails created this sharp design after being inspired by @ninanailsedi. For anyone with a client who wants to try a design that’s out of the box, follow along to see
You will need:
- Gel or regular polish in nude, subtle glitter, blue-gray, grey
- Dotting tool
- Striping and detail brush
Step 1: Use a neutral color as your base.
Step 2: Add a subtle glitter coat top coat.
Step 3: Sarah blended a few blue colors to get the right gray-blue polish.
Step 4: Start painting the outline of the shark.
Step 5: Paint between those lines.
Step 6: Get out your dotting tool and black polish.
Step 7: Make the eyes with your dotting tool.
Step 8: Start painting in triangles for the shark teeth with a thin brush.
Step 9: Once you are done add top coat.
You can leave it shiny, or lightly buff with a white block for a matte effect (shown).
