Hi everyone. Today, I’m going to show you how to do pop art nails with simple blue and black nail designs. Let’s get started!

Tools and materials:

  • Black gel polish
  • White gel polish
  • Dark blue gel polish
  • No wipe topcoat
  • Matte topcoat
  • Dotting tool
  • Thin brush
Applying blue nail polish

1. Apply blue nail polish

Apply the blue, gel nail polish to all of your nails and then cure.

Outlining the nail

2. Outline the nail

Use a thin brush and line your nails with black gel nail polish.

Adding black stroke

3. Make a thin, black stroke

Still using the black, make a thin stroke around the outer curve of your nails.

Adding blue stroke

4. Make a thin, blue stroke

Make an additional thin stroke with dark blue gel polish, this time starting from the bottom center of your nail and stopping just before the black stroke.

Dotting the nail

5. Dot your nail

Use a dotting tool and white gel nail polish to add a dot at the top center of your nail, just below the tip of the black stroke.

Adding white stroke

6. Make a thin, white stroke

Finish the curve by using white gel polish to another stroke polish from the bottom to the top, mimicking the blue and black strokes.

Stop just before the white dot. Once you’re finished, cure.

Applying topcoat

7. Apply topcoat

Apply a no-wipe, glossy topcoat and then a matte topcoat. Cure.
