Try This Chic & Simple Purple Paint Stroke Accent Nail DIY

This week I am all about keeping things clean and simple. As any aspiring nail artist knows, being able to execute a simple accent nail is the easiest way to give your mani a chic and easy upgrade.


Chic Purple Paint Strokes, An Accent Nail DIY

What You Need

  • All In One 3 Way Glaze
  • Deborah Lippman – Like Dreamers Do
  • Deborah Lippman – I Know What Boys Like
  • Deborah Lippman – Harlem Nocturne
  • Skinny Paint Brush – Available on Amazon


1. Apply your base coat.

2. Apply two coats of “Like Dreamers Do”.

3. Allow your polish to fully dry so that you do not drag the polish and smudge it with the skinny brush.

4. Using the skinny brush, draw 5 diagonal lines using “I Know What Boys Like” onto your ring finger.

5. Follow each of those lines closely with “Harlem Nocturne”. I chose this particular color because it’s a metallic and it really helped to enhance the brush strokes. You could also use a sparkle to achieve this look.

6. Wait until the accent nails are completely dry before applying your top coat. There you go! An easy accent nail that will add subtle style to any manicure.
