Toothpick Nails! 5 Nail Designs Using Only a Toothpick
Hey guys, here’s another toothpick tutorial.
We’re building a little house. First you need to make the walls, then a roof and doors.
To finish off you can also make some windows, chimney and a flower… Hey guys, I’m super
happy to be with you again and guess what? This is a toothpick nail art episode two.
I received so many requests to film more nail art designs using a toothpick. So these are
the ones we are making today. Mickey Mouse design, Camouflage nails, Cotton Candy nail
art, Daisies Design and a fun take on French manicure. So grab your polishes and toothpicks
and let’s jump into it. In my first toothpick nail art tutorial we
learned that a toothpick can work as an awesome nail art tool. Today we are making another
five quick and easy designs, for which we only need a toothpick and a nail polish.
You guys already know the first step — a base coat.
First we need to cut the end of the toothpick, which will allow us to make a bit larger dots,
stripes and other forms. Let’s start with the first design. I am making
a pink take on the camouflage pattern. Paint your nail with a medium pink polish. You may
need more than one layer to get an opaque color like me. Dip the toothpick into a fuschia
pink polish and dot the polish on the nail to form these cloud shaped patches. Make a
few of these hot pink clouds randomly on the nail. For this design you need a few shades
of pink, but you can make the camouflage nails with any color you want. I think the original
olive green would be so cool. But unfortunately, I don’t own any nail polish in this color.
So use the colors you have at home. Next, I am taking a pink polish that is lighter
than my base color to draw some more clouds. Make sure that some of them slightly overlap
with the fuschia clouds. Lastly, I am going in with a very dark pink shade. A grey color
would also work very nicely for camouflage nails, no matter what base color you’re using.
Here I am just going over some of the dark clouds with light pink and fuschia for the
3D effect and since I don’t want all the dark clouds to be in the front. To finish off,
seal the design with a fast drying top coat. I think this design is so cool. The camouflage
pattern is a bit edgy by itself but pink take on it makes it girly and sweet.
Next we are making a classic cartoon daisy design. I need to start with a white base
because the green polish I will be using next is not that pigmented. But if you have a nice
opaque green nail polish you can skip this step and just paint all your nails with it.
To make the beautiful white daisy flowers you just need to make 5 small white dots in
a circle for the petals and then the final dot in the center. Don’t worry if some petals
are bigger than others — this makes it even more interesting and unique. I am making four
daisies on my nail today, but you can draw less or more of them if you prefer. Now dip
the toothpick in the yellow polish and make a yellow dot in the center of each flower.
Since we’ve colored the center with the white previously, the yellow looks super bright,
see? Finish your design with a top coat. I think this design is so retro and beautiful
and you could wear it on all of your nails or just on a ring finger for a lovely accent.
The third design we are making is this adorable Mickey Mouse design. First I am painting the
entire nail in white. I need 2-3 layers to get an opaque result with this polish. Now
we need to draw Mickey heads all over the nail. Make a larger dot for the head and two
smaller ones on the sides for his ears. To make a larger dot you can cut away a bit more
of the toothpick — since the toothpick is normally wider in the middle. Another alternative
is also to dip the toothpick into the polish and let it dry; you can repeat this several
times. Your toothpick will get a nice rounded tip and will also be making larger dots. For
the ears, cut off just a small piece of the toothpick. This way the toothpick will have
a smaller tip, like smaller dotting tool. I decided to make the Mickeys in three typical
Disney colors — red, blue and black. Lastly, apply a layer of a fast drying top coat to
protect your design and add a beautiful shine. How cute and simple is this one right? I absolutely
love it. Next we are making this fun take on the French
manicure. I am coloring my entire nail in white until I get the opaque payoff. Next
just dip the toothpick into a bright coral or any other color that you like and dot the
polish across the tip of the nail like that. Make sure to draw the dots very closely together
to get this beautiful pattern. This design is so easy to make and it’s great if you just
want a nice little detail to your nails. I like it because it’s a bit special but still
very wearable for work or school. As always, finish the design with a fast drying top coat.
This design is also perfect for the mix and match manicure. See how lovely it looks when
paired with our Mickey design. I made this fun French manicure to all my nails except
the ring finger, where I draw Mickeys. It makes for such a simple but absolutely adorable
manicure. Lastly, we are making a fun cotton candy design.
Paint your entire nail with any solid color you prefer, I have chosen a medium blue. I
do recommend going for any darker color you have, because the cotton candy is very light,
pastel color. Now it’s time to draw some yummy sweets on the nail. Cotton candy looks like
a puffy pastel cloud, so dip the toothpick into the pastel polish and start drawing the
fluffy clouds. Just use the dotting motion to get the perfect shape. I decided to make
3 cotton candies in lilac, pink and pastel minty green. To add the sticks just draw a
small black or grey line picking out of each cotton candy. Seal in your design with a layer
of fast drying top coat. This design is just so lovely and delicious, don’t you think?
