Dry brush nail art is the new big nail art trend. I saw quite a few models rocking this look on the catwalk during fashion week. Obviously I had to give it a go. This is most likely the easiest nail art I’ve ever tried.
I went for a gold base coat rather than the white; I think its more fitting for Autumn. Firstly, I needed a good three coats of the gold to stop it being transparent. I then added the red, purple and black in turn and in that order. Always add the black last.
The trick is to make sure there is hardly any polish left on the brush this is probably easier with regular polish than shellac. The first colour looks a bit odd, but trust me, once you add a couple more it builds to a cool look. I found I could paint about three nails with one dip in the polish pot, meaning you can do this pretty quick.
What do you think?

Thank you chick
Loving this nail art! I’m not very good at painting nails myself, but this look fairly doable like you’ve mentioned and I’d love to try it out.
It definitely is, just make sure you have hardly any paint, the first layer looks a bit dodgy too but just go with it
I like the gold base, it a bit more lively than plain white!
