As an ambassador for the Sally Hansen #IHeartNailArt contest, today I’m sharing some tips and tricks to get these Hawaii inspired nails! This month’s theme is all about color destinations, so lots of color is involved along with a travel-related place. Last year I went to Hawaii and was so inspired by all the colors, I did some nails similar to these in the past but I wanted to revisit them with more color!
For some extra fun, add in some gorgeous rings from BaubleBar like this contrast spike ring set…love how they can be work together for a cute stacked looked or individually! (See bottom of post for a coupon code!!)
Read below for a photo & video how-to…
I made a quick tutorial showing each step by step, but I also have some photo graphics showing each individual design.
To start off, I painted all of my nails with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Peach of Cake. I loved this coral/peach and thought it was the perfect color to make the designs pop!
For the Pineapple nail, I painted ovals with Sally Hansen Triple Shine in Lemon Shark. Once it dries for a minute, paint on the details with Triple Shine Play Koi, a bright orange. Add in the leaves with Xtreme Wear in Going Green and you’re done!
We couldn’t have some Hawaii nail art without the hibiscus flower! Start by painting 5 petals with Complete Salon Manicure Pink a Card, then add in details with a darker hot pink, like Cherry, Cherry, Bang, Bang! Add in leaves with a vibrant green.
This palm tree design is the easiest of the 3, so its perfect for beginners! Start by painting random lines on your nails with a light brown, like Complete Salon Manicure Commander in Chic. Add in tiny zig zags with a darker brown, like Bittersweet. This step is completely optional, especially since it takes a steady hand! Add in 4 lines with the same green used on the other nails, and you’re done!
Add your favorite top coat to make it last and to give it some major shine.
