I’m convinced if you put the word native before anything, it instantly becomes much cooler. Native Tee, native print, native earrings, native boots… wherever it is, I’m a fan. Especially now when it’s on one of my favorite things to experiment with: Toes.
Here are some easy native toes you can DIY to your little boho nail art loving heart’s content.
1: Paint toes with a base coat.
2: Paint all but your second to last toe a really light, opaque color. I used Essie Fiji, but white would look rather sweet.
3: Paint your second to last toe a different color, that’s also somewhat neutral. (I used Essie Navigate Her)
4: Using a nail art brush or toothpick, and a dark brown or black nail polish, paint any combo of the following: thin horizontal stripes, triangles, thick chevrons, diamonds, little dots.
5: I did a different combo on each nail. On the big toe I found that a vertical strip a bit off centered looked the best. Then kept the other toes to something simple.
6: Using that same nail art brush or tooth pick, paint little dots of an accent color ( I used yellow) on the middle of any triange, diamond, or chevron, and a few random ones where you deem appropriate.
7: Basically use simple shapes and be creative, add some accent color dots at the end.
8: Let toes dry, then cover with glossy topcoat. Bam. You are done.
…And your toes are officially part of the native-cool club.
