Start off with clean nails!
Apply base coat
Apply any base color if you like. This can be done without a base color. White is often a popular color. I also do recommend a lighter color as well.
Take the color you want to create the dripping affects with and place on a moderate sized dot on a clean sheet of paper.
Take your bobby pin (or whatever you have chose to use) and dip into your polish. (My mother bought this dot tool at a nail supply store)
Apply the color along the crest of your nail.
Slowly start creating the dripping affect. Be creative with this! They shouldn't all look the same
Like so~ I used only one color, but feel free to use multiple colors!
Apply top coat to protect your drip drops!
And you're done!
- Base coat
- Top coat
- Bobby pin OR anything with a circular tip to it
