Pokémon Go Nail

First, the tools you will need:

  • Print out of your Pokémon Go inspiration
  • Tools, including slim art or makeup brushes, toothpick and q-tips
  • Nail lacquers, accordingly with the design you desire and a colorless lacquer for shine and protection

Below are three nail art ideas you can try on your nails. These are guaranteed DIY style approved.

1. Pikachu-inspired Nails: Coat your nails with the colorless lacquer. Next, use bright yellow lacquer as your base coat. Apply the color twice on each fingernail to make the color pop out. Using your slim brush, draw out your Pikachu inspiration. Remember, you can always draw out the full character, full face, or just a distinguishing part of Pikachu – his eyes, lips or red cheeks on each of your nails for instance. Don’t forget to seal in with a colorless lacquer.

2. Red hot Red

Get inspired by Pokémon Go trainer, Red. Channel his champ moves and ideas by taking a piece of his baseball cap to design your nails with. Line all your nails with colorless lacquer. Next, apply a red color in your desired shade. Coat each nail twice. Using a white lacquer. Draw an arc at the bottom side of your nails. Top with a colorless lacquer and get ready to train your own Pokémons!

3. Game cast Nails: Help yourself with a large serving of Pokémon Go characters by getting hold of character stickers. It’s best if you can get these in small sizes that fit your fingernails. You can either uniformly coat your nails or, color each nail using the dominant color of each character. For instance, red for Red, blue for Ash, yellow for Pikachu, green for Bulbasaur and so on and so forth. Stick on the stickers and top with the colorless lacquer.
