china glaze – re-fresh mint
covergirl boundless color – disco dazzle
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)
barielle – sand-al chic
opi for sephora – worth my weight
Did my nails for prom! I used nail stickers that my friend Amy gave me~~
My dress is in the background (and there’s the candle souvenir that they pass out too!) ^_^
♥ Tips: China Glaze – “let’s do it in 3d” layered over Sally Hansen “black out”
♥ Dots: Wet ‘n’ Wild – French white creme
♥ Glitter line: LA colors ART DECO – silver glitter
essie – sag harbor
i’m so happy! i’ve been wanting this color for a longgg time. i’ve noticed that i get a lot of compliments from strangers on the street when i wear blues or greens, lol.
decided to add some nail stickers
sinful – daddy’s girl
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)
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.
