Take your nail designs to a new level this fall with Chrissy’s Teal Art Nouveau Nails! She used a combination of polishes and acrylic paints, which dry faster than polish when exposed to air, to do this very detailed pattern based on a fabric swatch. When broken down into simple steps, these seemingly complex nails are actually pretty doable. Try it out on your whole hand, or do a sample on an accent nail.

Prepare your colors:
In your paint palette, mix two drops of Hauser Light Green with one drop Vineyard Green, add a drop of water, and mix.
For you deep teal, take a bit of your green mixture and add a tiny bit of Ultra Deep Blue and a small bit of Indian Turquoise and mix together until you are happy with a nice, deep teal color. Then add a drop of water and mix.
In another spot on the palette, mix a drop of Ultra Deep Blue and a drop of Indian Turquoise with a drop of water.
In another section of your palette, take a tiny bit of your deep teal mixture and a small drop of the Indian Turquoise and mix until you have a light teal mixture.
In one more section on your palette, put a small drop of Ultra Deep Blue.
Finally in a separate section on the palette, put a drop of pure Metallic Inca Gold.
