Mix And Match Nails Tutorial


Mix and match nails are very much in trend today. They look stylish, chic and also add colorful flair to your nails and personality. You can create and experiment with many designs. There are no set patterns on how and what to do, just let your creativity go wild.

For today’s mix & match nails, I coloured my thumb and three of my fingers pastel and kept my pinky nail metallic and dark to stand out. You can follow below steps to create this look.

You will need:

  • Few of your pastel nail polishes
  • Pearls, fimo and rhinestones. (if you don’t have them you can use bindis)
  • Metallic finish nail paint
  • Dotting tool or tooth pick
  • Black nail art pen
  • Base coat and top coat

1. Apply basecoat to get started and then paint your nails as shown in the picture below:


2. PINKY Nail: Starting from your pinky nail, draw diagonal lines using your nail art pen as shown in the picture below:


Now add more lines as shown in the picture below:


3. RING FINGER NAIL: Make diagonal lines using your pink and purple nail design paints as shown in the pictures below:


Now add pearls and rhinestone on one side your nails.


4. MIDDLE FINGER NAIL: Add smiley fimo to your middle finger, if you don’t have smiley fimo, then free hand little yellow smiley on your nail and add rhinestones randomly.


5. POINTER FINGER NAIL: Draw leopard print on your pointer finger nail with blue nail paint and black nail art pen. Leopard design is very easy to make. Just do uneven dots using dotting tool or tooth pick and highlight these dots using black nail art pen in “c” shaped curves. And you will get the following result:


6. THUMB: Repeat the steps that you did on your ring finger on your thumb too.

7. Finally add top coat to already dried nails and you are done.
So here is the final result:
