So I've been having more fun with my new polishes. I watched some easy nail art tutorials that MissJenFaboulous did on youtube and had to give a couple of them a try. Here are the manicures I tried out this week:
I think I had a little too much fun with the new Sinful Colors polishes I picked up! I was in a spring/pastel mood but didn't really have any polishes in my collection in the pastel range. So I headed to Walgreens and picked up a few and then couldn't decided which one I wanted to use first, so I used them all!! hahahahaha
This manicure is so sparkly and fun and sooooo easy to do. You don't have to be great at painting your nails, there is no precision in this manicure, you can be rather sloppy and still get great results!! Let's get started:
I started by painting one coat of Don't You Wish by Pure Ice over my entire bare nail:
Then I painted Dark Navy by ELF just on the tips of my nails. It really doesn't have to be neat or a straight line becuase the edge gets covered.
Next I took a wet makeup sponge and painted a bit of Celeb City by Sally Hansen onto it and lightly dabbed it onto the center of my nail.
I stippled on a bit of Rockstar Pink by Sally Hansen. It doesn't take much of this glitter polish. It's very opaque so I just lightly dabbed it on.
Using Bundle Monster plate number BM21 I stamped a star design onto each nail with Black Out by Sally Hansen.
After applying Sally Hansen Dries Instantly Top Coat and clean up, we're all done!! Thanks for reading and Happy New Year!!
This is the second manicure in my Holiday 2012 series. I wanted to create a look that would reflect a dark starry winter sky sparkling with stars and snowflakes. I like the way this manicure turned out but after it was done I felt like the snowflakes would have looked better in white instead of silver. Oh well, there's always next year! Here are the steps to acheive this manicure:
I started by painting my nails with two coats of Dark Navy by ELF
I used the Snowflake and the little stars on Bundle Monster Plate BM14
I used Celeb City by Sally Hansen for the stamping. I placed stars on my thumb and pinky finger and snowflakes on all fingers except my pinky.
I dabbed a bit of Stunning by Revlon onto my stamping plate and with a dotting tool I picked up bits of the chunkier glitter and placed it randomly around my nails
I cleaned up and applied my favorite top coat, Dries Instantly by Sally Hansen and Voila!! Shimmery Winter Nights!
