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. :)
