nail deco of the week #37 / tutorial

18 Jan

i got a few requests for a tut, so here you go!
it’s very simple and you can do it quickly for a fast simple mani (:
what i use:
lippmann collection – how far is heaven?
china glaze – passion
stripe rite – silver glitter
cover girl – disco dazzle

1. basic prep (clean nails, base coat, blahblahblah)
2. i painted two layers of ‘how far is heaven’ ~ you can do more or less depending on how sheer you want it to be (:
3. paint tips with ‘passion’ or w/e color you want.
it doesn’t have to to be perfect b/c you can conceal your mistakes with glitter later!
4. you can use as many different types of glitters as you want, but i’m only using 2 in this tut. (:
so paint another stripe with your finest/densest glitter, patrially overlapping your colored tips
5. do the same thing as stop #4, but with your more sparse glitters. if you’re using many glitters, start with the densest glitter and your last glitter should be the sparse-est! i hope that made sense >_>
6. now paint over your dense glitter layers/colored tips with your sparse-est glitter
7. add a topcoat and you’re done! (there is no topcoat layer in the pic above ^_^)

    I’m so glad you now have a blog!
    It makes looking at all the nail designs at one, easier 🙂
    Anyway I’m bluebyul on Sooompi~
    I bought the CG DiscoDazzle online, and waiting for it to come in so I can do the gradients this way. Can’t wait!
    btw just wondeirng, do you have any of the other glitter top coats from CoverGirl? I’ve been trying to look for decent swatches, cause the website I’m trying to buy them from doesn’t show the actual product…
    Anyway can’t wait to see more design/tutorials in the future 😀
