Today was a somewhat productive day :)
I wish I had a tutorial but my camera didn’t want to focus. Sorry guys! :’(
Hey guys! So this is my little way of doing nail designs without using/buying the little nail designing pens or little designing nail polish bottles. I did this particular design for my graduation :)
Its basically self explanatory, but I’ll give yall the lowdown on what I did exactly anyways.
Step 1: Cut/tear little squares of Masking Tape out.
Step 2: Cut out a little design using scissors.
Step 3: Apply base coat and background nail color. Let dry completely.
Step 4: Put cut-out masking tape onto painted nail.
Step 5: Paint the cutout with whatever color you want your design to be.
Step 6 (optional): Paint glitter layer on top of design.
Step 7: Apply top coat and let dry.
And as most of you know, I’m right handed! Why is this relevant? Because this is what I did with my right hand since my left hand is incapable of doing anything right =_=;;
My nails for tomorrow’s Baccalaureate Ceremony!!! Painted it to match my outfit ^_^
Elf’s Blush as the base and Pearl for the tips.
HEHE!!! MY NAILS!!! because of my crappy webcam, though, you can’t see the gradient effect on it transitioning from black to the pearl color ^_^ soooo fun to do (even though I totally messed up on my right hand because I’m right handed =_=)
Here’s Bubz Beauty’s tutorial on how to achieve this effect:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFrYx_nJ2Ms&feature=channel_video_title
and she’s really amazing so y’all should follow her tumblr as well: http://bubbiosity.tumblr.com/
Bought two new nail polishes today!!!
Wet n Wild’s the brand and I LOVE it! and they were only a dollar each! ^_^ Total steal! (at walgreens, none the less ;])
The only thing I dont really like about the Bijou Blue color is that it takes several coats to get a good enough color (but that’s kind of with most nail polishes so it doesn’t bug me that much XP).
The Kaleidoscope (glittery) one is amazing! I adore it!!! It’s just like glitter saturated in some clear nail polish, but I’ve wanted some for a while now so its exactly what I wanted.
In the picture above, I just painted on 2-3 coats of the Bijou Blue and a layer of the Kaleidoscope on top. ^_^
new nail colors and a tasty treat. life’s good. ^_^
