I Love Coffee Nail Art

Hi Coffee Lovers, I have a very cute and very 'Me' Nail Art today to share. It is an Ode to my irrevocable love for Coffee. I can literally imagine the aroma of coffee around me as I write this :).

I love Coffee Nail Art

As it is raining these days I have a stronger urge to have a warm perfect coffee, but with the coffee nail art on my fingers as I type is taking this urge to another level of obsession :grin: :grin:. So much so that I am taking a break right now and getting a cup of coffee.

Okay, I am back with Coffee :D :D and back to the nail art. Well, doesn't it look like a nail wrap or a matte gift paper with coffee prints cut and pasted on nails?? I don't know but I am feeling this every time I look at it. I have used a 'Matte' top coat so that may be responsible for the papery look :). I am using the matte top coat for the first time that I bought from Thailand 4 months back. Initially for 2 months I kept crying and cribbing that I dont have them and I couldn't find them in India. On my trip to Thailand I kept on asking about it in every possible outlet. And finally when I found it, my husband asked me to get two of them considering how hungry I had been for them so long :D :D :D

And now that I have them I did not touch them for 4 months (just double the time I spent crying on it :P :P ). Well, that is how crazy we 'Girls' are :oops: !!!! Anyone on same page???Please share your thoughts to make me feel less crazy :roll: :roll: :roll:

Now seriously back to the nail art without holding an exhibition of my craziness :wink: :wink:

Coffee Nail Art Tutorial

  1. Prep you nails for spilling some coffee over them (cutting, filing, cleaning and base coat).

  2. Apply the nude or light brown nail paint as the base color.

  3. Use a brush to pick up brown acrylic paint to draw coffee beans (Hint: try to draw leaf like structure without sharp edges) on all fingers except the ring or middle finger.

  4. Use white acrylic paint to draw a cup along with saucer on the middle finger.

  5. Now, outline the cup and beans and saucer using a black nail art pen or a fine brush.

  6. Fill in the brown color on the mouth of the cup depicting coffee and some white swirls for the frothy look.

  7. Beautify your cup if you wish, like I added an 'almost' heart (sorry for the ugly heart). And add fumes with black to the coffee mug to give the warm fresh feeling.

  8. You could do some shading on the beans as well (with lighter shade of brown), which I did not.

  9. Now, apply a matte top coat to get that still, silent and papery look. I do not know exactly what and how to describe the effect. But it gives such a classy finish to the entire thing.

I hope you enjoyed the nail art and had some extra sip of coffee browsing this. Are you a coffee person or a tea person? Did you feel an urge to have that warm frothy coffee when you saw this nail art?? Let me know your thoughts :) :)

PS : These days, esp after I published the things that you wouldn't know about me on Versatile blogger post, I feel like telling more and more to you guys of who I am. I just did a 'I Hate Winters Nail Art' yesterday which I will uploading soon. And I am enjoying doing them, saying to the world about me through nail art!!! :). Thinking on these lines I also did a post on "Story Behind The Nail Art and Beauty Diaries", I am sure you will be able to relate in some form or other.
