This is a quick tutorial on how to do nail art which was inspired by the very pretty Bornite Stone. Some have suggested that if you used lighter colours i would look like Opal too, very pretty! .

Bornite Stone (AKA Peacock Stone) Inspired Simple Nail Art Instructions
Today’s nail art is inspired by a very pretty stone: Bornite.
I’m probably pronouncing that wrong.
It’s full of beautiful dark purples, blues and pinks.
These are the polish colours I used.
You can use the same technique with any though.
You will also need tweezers and a tissue.
Start with a basic dark purple base.
It doesn’t need to be neat at all.
Add a drop of light purple to the tip, scrunch up a piece of tissue and use the tweezers to dab it lightly into a pattern.
This same basic technique is used to add the other colours too so if you don’t feel confident with it practice a little first.
Add a drop of pink glitter around the base and repeat.
You can use different items such as sponges, paper or fabric for different effects.
The more crinkled your tissue is the more interesting the pattern will be.
Add some darker splotches to cover any gaps and dab in place.
Lastly add some shimmery green highlights in the same way.
Getting a good pattern depending on your polish consistency so if you can’t get it right, try leaving your polish to dry slightly on the nail first.
Clean any mess with a cuticle stick and a tissue dipped in polish remover.
Once dry, give all of the nails a clear top coat.
And you’re all finished!
Shiny and very pretty.
Just like the beautiful stone that inspired them.
I hope this was a useful video.
