Simple and Easy DIY Nail Art Designs Tutorial: Pearlescent Pink Nails with White Swirls, Dots, and Rhinestones

Updated on May 13, 2012

A Feminine Nail Art Design

This is by far one of the most feminine nail polish ideas I've ever worked on, and it's so simple to do that even a beginner could get a fairly successful result with a little practice. This design uses a light pink pearlescent nail polish and a white nail polish, along with striper brush, dotting tools and clear rhinestones. The end result is stunning, especially if you consider how easy this design really is. This is a perfect design for a bride, for example, or for someone who prefers simple elegance instead of eye-catching colors or bold DIY nail art designs. This design was listed in my pink nail ideas for beginners hub.

Step 1

I started by painting the entire nail using a light pink pearlescent nail polish. I used two coats to give good coverage. You should always prepare the nails properly and push back your cuticles before you apply a base coat. Once that's dry, apply the pink base color for this design. The extra steps are well worth it because the design will last so much longer.

Step 2

Next, I added the whirls using white nail polish and a striper brush from my nail art brush set. If you use a white nail art striper, the lines and dots will be far more visible, because these products generally contain a lot more pigment than actual nail polish. If you want the result to be subtle, use white nail polish and apply it with a striper brush.

Step 3

Now create a line of dots starting with the biggest dotting tool and working your way towards the smallest one as you near the edge of the nail. I used white nail polish for this again.

Step 4

Last, I applied a little clear nail polish to the corner of the nail and glued on a clear rhinestone. Once that's done, let the design dry and then apply a top coat of your choice to seal in the design.

This is just one of the easy nail polish ideas for beginners that I've played around with, and I love the fact that the white is somewhat translucent. It just adds visual interest to the design and gives it a far 'softer' and more feminine look than if I chose to use acrylics or nail art liners. This design is a must try if you're into soft and feminine colors or more subtle DIY nail art designs. You'll still turn heads,though, so be prepared for a barrage of compliments whenever someone sees your nails.
