OK, so I’ve gone a little nuts with the nail polish these days, but there is something so uplifting about staring down at your hands and seeing these girly little fingernails. I cannot wear polished nails to work, so when I am off, I go BIG! I also think nail art looks better on short nails. Long nails are too overwhelming for me and take away from the “cuteness”. I saw this design on Bright Lights, Big Color’s blog, who I guess saw it on tumblr. She is a little more talented in the art department, so I decided to simplify the design a little.
What I used:
Polish: Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in 200 Strobe Light, 340 Mint Sorbet, & 370 Black Out; Sally Hansen Insta-Dry in 120 Whirlwind White; Sally Hansen Double Duty Top Coat
Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens in Light Pink, White, & Black
Step by Step:
1. Apply two coats of nail polish onto clean nails. Strobe Light on my thumb (see pic above) required FOUR coats. It looks better if you do not match your hands. For example, paint your your left thumb with Strobe Light and your right thumb with Mint Sorbet, etc. Let polish dry COMPLETELY.
2. Using your nail art pens, or you can also use toothpicks or dotting tool, draw designs on nails. Let it dry COMPLETELY.
3. Finish with clear top coat to seal your design. Do not skip this step! Enjoy your weekend everyone.
