I have been practicing quilted nails ever since I started in Jan 2016 with a piece of string! I’ve now almost perfected this technique and now I want to share with you a video tutorial of how I did these mint quilted nails because… MINTosee! These mint quilted nails are inspired by my Safavieh round storage ottoman, that I don’t always love. 🙁 Anyways, the video tutorial is on my YouTube channel (subscribe!) and embedded below. As usual, I link the nail polishes, tools, and anything else that can be linked in this post.
These are the nail polishes that I used to get these mint quilted nails (in order of use):
Maybelline Mint Mist
If you have a one coat mint nail polish, use it! It will seriously cut down on this manicure’s time.
This is the matte top coat that I used. A matte top coat is the most important thing for quilted nails. Using about three thick coats allowed me to create the dented lines in the polish.
Sally Hansen Mint Tint
This is my set of dotting tools:
This is the round storage ottoman that I have that inspired these mint quilted nails:
Safavieh Hudson Collection Irwin Round Storage Ottoman, Robin’s Egg Blue
I hope you like this mint and yellow nail art design!
Talk to you soon,
