Tutorial Tuesday: Fan Brush Stripes

We came across this amazing nail art hack online and obviously decided to share it with you. Have you ever seen stripy nails online and wanted to recreate it? We totally have! So when we saw this manicure hack with a fan brush and the awesome striped effect you can create doing it we were totally excited! So read on for this awesome and easy tutorial!

For this tutorial we used a fan brush and two polishes. Easy right? The polish colors we used were Sinful Colors ‘Outrageous’ and Orly ‘Liquid Vinyl’.


Paint your base color on all nails. For this we used Orly ‘Liquid Vinyl’. For the next steps do each nail individually.

Paint half of your nail your accent color. Ours is Sinful Colors ‘Outrageous’.

While the accent color is still wet, drag your fan brush from the centre out to the edge of the nail to create a brush stroke pattern.
