I love the colours in the colour blind tests, so i thought i’d have a go and do one myself.

The colours i used for this are:

The way of doing these nails is the same for all of them just different colours and numbers, so i’ll explain it and then you can just repeat for them all.

So before you start, decide on which number you want on the nail and figure out what sort of font you want it in and perhaps even try drawing it out or have an image in front of you to reference. Then decide on which colours your going to use for that nail. After figuring all of this out.

Take a piece of tin foil and drip your colours onto this and this is now your palate, although be careful don’t put loads on, only add a blob of each colour just before your about to dot that colour or you’re going to waste loads of nail varnish as it dries. Then start dotting, taking one colour at a time and dotting it in the places for make you first number. Carefully making sure you’re in the right place to form the number. And just keep adding the colours!

Once the number is all dotted with all the colours, of course feel free to go back after and fill in any spaces with the colours you’ve already used if you feel you need more. Then start with dotting the background in. And it’s the same technique.

I hope you have fun recreating this look!!
