Trini Nails: Day 1 Easy Plastic Marble Nails

In my last post it was announced that I will be posting nail art done in Trinidad and Tobago’s national colours every day until the 31st of August. However due to technical difficulties I started one day late *sad face*

This 1st post is pretty easy 🙂 In fact, it’s so easy you can do it using your non-dominant hand with a breeze 😀 I am a righty and did the entire thing using my left hand.
What you need:
1. Plastic wrap/bag
2. Nail polish (tchh duh)
3. Nail polish remover
4. Q-tips (optional. Only for cleaning up)
5. Tape (also optional so the polish wont get all over your skin.)

First, paint your nails red.

painted red like so.

Then put a blob of black polish on your nail

Add a second blob with another colour, in this case white

Don’t allow them to dry! Get you plastic and smudge, dab and smear your nails to your hearts content. It might take a bit until you can find a smudging method you like, but the point is to be messy with it.
In the end, you get this!

Perfect for next jouvert dont you think?
