Start with your favorite base color.I chose NYC "Skyline Blue"
Then using a small nail brush or use one from L.A.Colors Art Deco,which work quite well.
If your not too great at creating straight lines try setting your brush on the edge of the nail,and instead of moving the brush try rolling your finger from left to right or visa versa while holding the brush down.This works great.
Then create lines going the other way.Then too finish it off tip the ends.Viola♥Crisscross Nails
Newspaper nails is a super easy way to create art on your nails.First cut out the part you'd like from the paper.Then you can either use mouthwash or rubbing alcohol to soak each finger for about 10-15 sec.Then place the paper down on your nail pressing hard trying not to move it for about 20 sec or longer,otherwise the print will smear.Peel off gently and gently apply a clear.

This is my first attempt creating the stained glass look on my nails,and I thought I did pretty well.You definitely need a steady hand which in fact I do not have,and patience which I don't have much of that either.
First start with your choice of colors and you'll need a dotting tool.I chose my largest one.
Choose a base coat or a clear coat will work.It'll be covered anyways.
Then create random dots or shapes.Some dots I made bigger than others,and try to put your colors fairly close to each other.
Continue with each color.
Cover most of your nail with different dots and shapes.Let it dry completely before starting your outlines with black.
Then using a nail art brush,draw lines around your colors to separate.What I found worked great is the brush from Art Deco.Just clean it off with some polish remover and dip into your black polish.I happen to not have a art deco in black so I used the brush from the green.This brush is perfect for going around colors and creating thinner lines.
What can I say I love creating polka dots,and they're so easy to create with your dotting tools.
Basically I started with a lighter base color Spoiled(Toad-ally Amazing)Then using the darker shade Spoiled(Distant Memory) to create my dots.Start at the top of the nail,and go around the edge of the nail to the tip.Then with the next row use a smaller dotting tool.Viola♥
First start with the 4-5 colors of your choice.Then with your dotting tool or a toothpick place 4-5 dots in a circle depending on the size of your dotting tool.Then place a dot in the middle.Viola♥Flower Nails

Paying with Platinum is an awesome shade.It looks green then purple.I love the shades that look like one color one way and another color another way.
Shade "Tattle Tell" a almost sheer polish with lots of shimmer.Love it♥
Shade "My Button Fell Off" This polish went on a bit streaky at first with the first coat.It took three coats for complete coverage.It almost looks white,however it's a very pale shade of pink.
