Happy New Years!! I chose color over glitter for the occasion. I wish you all much success, happiness, and love in the new year. Every new year is a testament to how quickly time passes, so enjoy life and live to the fullest! A big thank you to all my followers as well. Love you guys.
Sorry that is has been so long. I had even more issues than I thought I did with my pictures and I finally had the time to get them all straightened out.
These are some fun multi-colored semi-intricate nails that I did for a friend. After cleaning, filing, and applying a base coat:
1. apply two coats of base color (in this case, on most nails, dark blue, and on the statement nails, gold.)
2. use a white striper to make designs on each nail
3. go over the designs that are in white with other colors (it is necessary to put white first for the other colors to be able to pop out against the background color) (I decided to put accents of gold on some of the white on the purple nails and to do half purple, half turquoise on the gold nails)
I have had this idea vaguely in mind for a few weeks, but hadn’t worked out how to execute it to achieve the result I wanted. After my creativity slump this week I wanted something a little more challenging so decided to take the plunge. I used Barry M - Coconut, OPI - Just Lanai-ing Around and water decals by KB Shimmer. It’s like a little bit of Spring is peeping through on my nails.
