Nail Art Tutorial: "Cotton Candy Pink" Nails

Hey everyone!!!
Thanks for my lovely readers who wished me well when King Kong was gone! I'm so happy he's back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had a long week, I was pushed to the limit by work at the start of the week and I needed to de-stress or I'll go crazy!!! :) And that's were Nail Art comes in!

I've decided to play with pinks. And I've decided to play it differently by using 2 kinds of polishes! :) I got a very nice shade of pink that reminded me of a yummy cotton candy :) It's not perfect, it's very amateur-ish, and of course, anyone can do better :D Enjoy

Step 1:

Apply one coat of matte "Neon" pink polish (I use Caress, local brand)

Note: Super bright in person

Step 2:

Using ELF Nail Polish in Coral over the "neon" pink polish. It creates a different shade

Step 3:

Using yellow nail art pen, apply strokes on the upper left hand side and lower right hand side looking like the drawing I did on the photo.

Step 4:

Do the same feather-y stroke this time using white nail art pen

Step 5:

Top it with something glittery, like silver or gold. Whatever you have

Step 6:

Top with a clear top coat. I've used Sally Hansen base and top coat.

A lovely friend whom I got to know because of my blog gave me a nice acetone dispenser for early Christmas gift. We bonded because of our love for nails!!! I'm excited to use this! Don't ask me where she purchased this because....I don't have any idea!!!!

Nancy, thanks so much for this!!! You are right, I feel like a pro!!!

Have a great weekend everyone!
I will definitely sleep like a bear this weekend!
King Kong and Bear together...awwwww LOL

  18. Those acetone dispensers are sold in some specialty nail salons. I saw them in Optima (my favorite nail salon in front of Greenbelt 5), they're sold for P250 each (just the bottle, no acetone inside). I found it expensive, so I passed.

  19. nice pink! i need to get myself a dispenser like this too, i always spill my nail polish remover everywhere. i think i know where to buy it :D

  20. Melvel, thanks for the info :) at least I know where to go If I needed another one :)
