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)

week #20’s tutorial

7 Apr

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

* paperclips

* 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. 🙂
