Dripping nail art is a fun nail art design that looks like paint is dripping down the nail. Although it looks complicated and time consuming, dripping nail art is actually much simpler than it looks!
Most dripping nail art designs are created one of two ways. One method of creating dripping nail art involves using a nail art brush to paint on the dripping designs. This method requires a slightly steadier hand than the other methodâ€”using a dotting tool. If you don’t have a dotting tool, you can improvise a bit and use what you have, such as a toothpick or bobby pin.
Looking for inspiration to try it yourself? Here are lots of great dripping nail art ideas to try!
1. Neon on Black Dripping Nail Art
The black base coat in this dripping nail art makes the neon colors pop!
This dripping nail art still uses neon colors and black nail polish, but they’re reversed. Instead of a black base coat and neon drips, each nail has a neon color for the base color and black is used for the drips. I also love the use of the white polish to create a 3D effect!
This next dripping nail art idea is still in the neon and black scheme, but it’s slightly different than the two examples above. The neon colors are painted onto the nails in stripes, and the black sparkly polish is used to create drips coming from the nail beds rather than the tips.
Hopefully these dripping nail art ideas have given you a little inspiration! There are so many different combinations and possibilities with drippy nail art too, so don’t feel like you have to replicate these designs exactly. Get creative and put your own spin on it!
