YouTube Nail Art Week - Unicorn Germs

Hi everyone!

Welcome to Day 3 of YouTube Week!

I couldn't do a YouTube Week without recreating a design from one of my favourite YouTube nail artists - ProfessionalDQ. She and I seem to have a similar aesthetic - lots of rainbow, neon and animal print! The design I picked to recreate incorporates all three of those elements. Well, sort of anyways. The animal print part is questionable. ;)


To recreate this whimsical "unicorn germs" design, I first started with a base of a white polish (Sinful Colors Snow Me White). I then used a dotting tool to create horizontal stripes using neon rainbow polishes. The ones I used are China Glaze Love's Beach, Orange You Hot?, Sun-Kissed, I'm With the Lifeguard, Splish Splash and Breach Cruise-r, all of which are from the Summer Neons Collection.

Once my rainbows were dry, I added the germs first in black and then filled them in almost all the way with white, leaving just an outline of the black. I did all this with a small dotting tool.


I think only she would come up with such a cooky design, but I absolutely love it!


Thanks for looking! See you tomorrow with another YouTube recreation!
