According to Chinese philosophy, everything in the natural world is interdependent and interconnected. This fact is represented by the words, Yin and Yang. They resemble two opposite principles in nature where Yin represents the negative nature of things and Yang goes for positive side. The symbol of Yin and Yang is an interesting thing to research on. If you believe in this concept, why not make this a powerful one by having them as nail arts!
Yin and Yang nail art will be a very simple one with the symbol drawn on your nails. The basic symbol has two colors; black and white. The black side is Yin and the white one is Yang. Yin has a white dot on it and similarly Yang has a black dot on it. If you are a beginner, you can start with the black and white at first. You will need the required nail colors and the necessary tools to do this nail art.
Have your nails cleaned and dried. Apply a base coat with either white or black nail color. Adding white one is a preferred choice as it will be easier to do the alterations on the white color instead of black. Let the white base nail color get dry and then use a nail art brush and draw the outline for the black side.
You may not be able to make it accurate at the first attempt as you are doing it in free hand. So apply light strokes and then draw the line on the second attempt. When the line is drawn, apply the black nail color with the nail polish brush and fill the side properly so that no area is left with white color.
Now you have done the two sides and you will need to apply the dots. For the dots, you can either use a doting tool or a toothpick; choose the one that you feel comfortable with. Apply the black dot on the white side and vice versa. Apply the dots only when the layers are completely dried.
Apply a top coat at the end to seal your nail art. In this way, you can get a perfect Yin and Yang nail art. Now if you want to make it a stylish one, then you can try more colors and designs to add with this symbol.
For example, you can have a Yin and Yang symbol on one nail and stripes or polka dots on other nails. Or you can make a combination of white and black nail colors in other nails and have the symbol on one nail. Instead of having the symbol on your whole nails, you can draw it in a circle in the middle of your nail.
If you are ready to go for more colors, then you will get more varieties to for this Yin and Yang nail art. You can make a combination of colors with either black or white and draw the same shape which will be a pretty one. White and blue or red and black are examples of these types of color combinations.
You can also do the shape completely with different colors but having different shades only. For example, you can have light and dark orange for one nail, light and dark blue for another, light and dark pink for another one and so on. In this case, you will need to choose soft colors so that they won’t become too vibrant.
If you want a shiny touch, you can have a coating of any sparkly polish or glitters. Rhinestones can also make it a gorgeous one. So choose the style that you want and get the best design for Yin and Yang nail arts today!
