Abstract graphics never go out of style, with the added bonus of irregularity. In other words, even shaky hands can get this look. “To keep the design clean and simple look don’t use more then 4 colors,” she says. 1. Apply base coat and follor it with your base color.2. Use a skinny nail art brush to freehand your design, but Yasuda recommends the easy cheat with scotch-tape for clean edges. 3. Finish the look with a clear topcoat.
