Hi guys! I haven't done any nail art for a while, and after doing this I feel like I want to start making fake nails again. This is pretty easy to do and even if you're right handed and very un-ambidextrous like me it's not too hard to do on the other hand - other than outlining the nail is a little tricky. I actually love the look of outlined nails, it gives your nails such a nice shape as weird as that sounds.
Essentially all you need is a black nail art pen, and a few assorted other colours of nail pens. My favourite in terms of easiest of use is the Barry M Nail Art Pen as it works as a pen (no need to squeeze as you use, colour doesn't get blocked in the tube, easy to control thickness of line etc), but the Models Own/Wah Nails collab pens are pretty good too. I also used a base colour as I was just going to leave my nails red before I did this, but you can skip this and just fill in your stained glass 'panels' individually.

I painted a base with the Barry M Gelly colour, then outlined my nails using the black pen and created the stain glass panels a la the ASOS tutorial I was inspired by below. Then I filled in the sections with different coloured nail art pens and finished with a top coat.
Check out the tutorial above which shoes a much neater and profesh version of mine, will definitely be trying this look out with different colours, maybe pastels? What nail art designs have you been loving recently? xx
