Art Deco Nails

I was inspired by art deco when I first created this nail look last year. I loved it so much and promised many of you to do a quick tutorial and show you exactly how I did it. The steps are easy and these art deco nails can easily be done! I will admit my biggest nemesis when it comes to nails is the amount of time it takes for nail polish to dry. I’m trying to learn to be more patient and accept the fact that I need to let my nails dry in between each step…it’s not easy but it can be done! My solution is watching my favorite YouTube beauty gurus in between each step for these art deco nails 🙂 Remember this art deco nails design can be done in any color combination you like so…get creative!
