As requested by Lucy, here is a tutorial for week #20′s deco!
what i use:
* sally hansen – black out
* nail star – holo silver
* chinaglaze – for audrey
* wet ‘n’ wild – french creme
* scrap paper
step 1: do all your basic nail prep (base coat etc)
step 2: paint your base color coat of course! pictured is 2 coats of chinaglaze’s “for audrey” (my fave color!!)
step 3: paint your tips! doesn’t have to be perfect, you can hide minor boo-boos later with a line of glitter.
step 4: paint a stripe down the middle. if you are doing your other nails without the stripe down the middle, just skip over to step6.
step 5: using your dotting tool, make dots along the sides of the stripe.
in this tutorial, i am using a paperclip as my dotting tool. :) you can buy professional dotting tools from sally’s or ebay. i find that toothpicks, paperclips, etc work just fine. just use whatever works best for you!
step 6: using your dotting tool (i’m using the other end of my paperclip), make dots in areas that do not have any decorations already.
step 7: paint your line of glitter.
step 8: make dots on the tips too.
step 9: dots down the middle stripe (buttons!).. or crosses if you want it to look like a corset!
and finish off with a topcoat! ta-da! you’re done. :)
