Nail Deco Of The Week #84

3 Dec

Hi everyone! Sorry for being MIA for the past few weeks. :( I’ve been really busy with work and school. My current work place allow allows for neutral pinks and nudes for nail color so that’s why I haven’t been doing any new designs. ;_; Anyway! I managed to do something this Wednesday. (I’ll have to take it off soon for work.. darn..)

 

Color Club – Vintage Couture

Also using some of the mini flat back pearls from Born Pretty (see next post for review)

the purple is actually darker! don’t know why it showed up like that-

my camera has always had trouble picking up purple accurately >.<

oh, and may be it had to do with the red sweatshirt that i was wearing! (red reflected off my shirt)

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!
