NOTD: Toothbrush Nail Art


I saw this nail art awhile ago on the blog The Nailasaurus and absolutely loved it. It's really easy to do and best of all, it doesn't have to be neat! My nails are never the neatest anyway - in this case I've ended up with some air bubbles and a few dents, sigh. 

All you need is four different nail varnishes and some cheap toothbrushes - you can get a pack of 2 Tesco Everyday Value Toothbrushes for just 18p! The nail varnishes I chose to use are:

Models Own Grape Juice (base colour)
Essie Sweet Talker
Models Own Apple Pie
Barry M Peach Melba 

Once the base colour is dry, you take your second nail varnish and generously paint the last two or three rows of the toothbrush bristles. Then just dab the toothbrush on your nails to achieve the random splodges! Wait for each layer of splodges to dry before applying the next and finish with a top coat to even out the bumps. I just love the slightly marbled effect.

What nail art have you tried recently? If you've posted about one on your blog please send me your links!

  1. This looks so awesome but I really suck at nail art so I doubt I'd be able to manage it! :(
