What you will need:

For this project, you’ll need blue, beige, black, brown and gold nail polish along with a dotting tool and toothpick and tiny paint brush. Once you have all the materials gathered together, it’s time to begin crafting these sophisticated nail art designs. With just a few simple steps, anyone can rock these sophisticated yet eye-catching looks that are sure to turn heads. So grab your supplies and follow along as we guide you through creating these stunning Three Wise Men nail art designs!

 

Step 1: Prep Nails

The first step in creating a stunning Three Wise Men nail art design is to prepare your nails. Begin by pushing back the cuticles and trimming any excess skin around the nails. Then, use a nail file to shape the nail and remove ridges or bumps. After that, buffing will bring out the natural shine of your nails. Be sure to clean each nail before applying a base coat, as this will help ensure even coverage when you’re ready to apply color or designs. Finally, it’s time for a base coat! This will protect your nails from staining and also provide an even surface for colors and glitter polishes to adhere to. With all these steps completed, you’re ready for the fun part – adding some unique style with three wise men inspired nail art!

Step 2:

Start by painting your nails all over blue, or any colour that you won’t use for your wise man figures.

Step 3:

Use a skin-coloured polish to paint a circle in the middle of each nail. This will be the wise man’s face so make sure it stands out from the rest of the design.

Step 4:

Select a bright white nail polish and add it to the dotting tool. With the white polish in place, add small circles for each eye. Make sure to let each layer dry before applying more polish so that you don’t smudge or mix colors together.

Step 7:

Finally, dress your wise man by painting a semi-circle on the tip of your nail for his shoulders, and use gold polish to paint a fancy crown on his head! To finish, paint your thumb and pinky nails with gold glitter polish to give them a festive and royal theme.
