Liquorice Allsorts Nail Art

This week I have another nail art for you all. This one is based on the Liquorice Allsorts sweets! It's quite a tricky one so if you have plenty of time and want to try something slightly challenging why not give it a go!

What will you need?

In order to create this nail art you will need nail varnish in black, white, light pink, dark pink, light blue, bright blue, yellow and a top coat. You will also need a dotting tool and a small sponge. I used the following nail varnishes: Miss Sporty 'Black', Barry M 'Matt White', Seventeen 'Miami', Rimmel 'Cranberry Zest', No7 'Minty Fresh', Illamasqua 'Cameo' and Miss Sporty 'Yellow'. 

Step-by-Step Guide:

Step 1: Paint all nails in a base of black. I painted two coats of black varnish onto my nails to make the base more opaque.

Step 2: Using the light pink and a dotting tool place circles randomly over the nails.

Step 3: Again using the dotting tool and this time yellow nail varnish place circles randomly over the nail.

Step 4: Taking the bright blue nail varnish and the dotting tool, again randomly place circles over the nails.

Step 5: Using the dotting tool once more and the white nail varnish, apply squares/rectangles over the nails in any available spaces.

Step 6: This time take the dark pink and place circles into any space left on the nails. I only placed this colour onto some nails as I didn't want to make them look overcrowded.

Step 7: Taking the black again and the dotting tool, put circles into the centre of the yellow and light pink circles and place a stripe into the centre of the white squares/rectangles.

Step 8: Using the sponge, take the light blue and light pink nail varnish and sponge these over the bright blue and dark pink circles.

Step 9: The final step to this nail art is to paint a top coat over all nails once they are dry. This will prevent chipping and even out the nails where the design has been applied. 

Thank you for reading! Have you been creating any cool nail arts recently? Let me know what you think of this fun liquorice allsorts nail art too!

Until next time, Samantha xx
