Nail Design For Beginners "Buttons"

I had a huge disaster yesterday: I accidentally poured half of nail polish bottle on my leg and because I didn't know what to do and how quick to clean everything until it all spill out onto the floor I just wiped it with my palms LOL~ And got all that sticky liquid all over my hands and legs and floor and everywhere. I'm lucky it was just transparent base coat but disgusting feeling didn't leave me all day. I was very close to stop and don't do anything on the nails but after all I decided to make something simple and fast. "How-To" for the design may sounds a bit complicated but it's really not!

How To Make "BUTTONS":
1. Apply base coat as always. Apply Baby Blue nail polish 1-2 coats depending on the density of nail polish. It should looks nice and even.
2. With a big size of dotting tool make uneven side of nail tips by using Royal Blue nail polish. Fill in whole nail tips with actual nail polish brush.
3. With a thin nail art brush and White acrylic paint make short lines for "stitches".
4. Again take a bigger size dotting tool and make Sky Blue circles. On the length of my nails, I was able to put 2 circles for buttons.
5. With smaller size of dotting tool make 4 Black dots inside of Sky Blue circles. And with the same size dotting tool make some parallel lines for the thread.
6. Seal everything with clear top coat.

HaPPy Polishing!


  1. Awww, this is so cute! Too bad, I don't think I can pull off everything on my short short nails.

    And omg, I feel you. I actually poured a bottle of dark maroon polish onto a dress inside my bag. My bag happened to be opened, and I happen to bring an extra dress out that day.

    I was testing a polish in Sephora, and I just tilted it a bit. It was still a full bottle, and the polish all poured out. My dress was ruined. Couldn't get it off no matter how much remover I used.

  2. Beautiful..I love the buttons design hun..^_^..Can't wait to see more from you..

  3. Lucky you didn't spill a red polish which will stain!! These nails are so cute~!! I used to collect lots of buttons lolxD
