Halftone Nails

Hi Tory

I'm a massive fan of Pop Art, especially the halftone artwork of Roy Lichtenstein where he paints cartoons that look like blown-up newsprint with the graduated dots.

So, I decided to do a really easy nail tutorial so that you can get the same effect on your nails. You only need two polishes - your base colour in a strong shade like red or blue or yellow, and a black to do the dots. You'll also need an old pen with a medium-sized nib, and a cuticle stick with a narrow, sharp point, a piece of paper to work from, and a cotton pad soaked in nail polish remover on hand for any clean-ups. Have fun!

Hugs and kisses,

    Love this tutorial, you made it look really easy! Will try this out at the weekend.

  2. Would love to see pictures! Once you've got the hang of it you can do diagonals, tips... all sorts of patterns. :)
