Nail Art Tutorial: "Office Ready" Nails

Nail time!!!
A lot of you commented that you like a couple of nail arts you've seen here but you cannot sport them at work.
So...I got inspired...to tone down my nail art tutorial into something "office friendly" and can be done for special occasions like Weddings, etc....

I hope you like it! :)

Step 1:

Paint 2 coats of your favorite earth toned polish. I go for ELF Nail Polish in Champagne (thanks Toma, this girl got a new site! I love it! Check her out!)

Step 2:

Create a French tip with a Gold Glitter Polish. I've Used Art Deco from Alyssa.

To create French Tip Nails, I usually steady the brush and move my fingers instead of the nail. It works for me better than moving the brush. LOL It's just my own preference.

Step 3:

Using a white 2 way nail art pen, create dots, I did a drawing using red dots circled in green

Step 4:

Using a needle, push the dots inward, to create a nice flower look.

Like This...

Step 5:

I never stop with just ONE flower, lol, create dots like shooting stars.

Step 6:

Using a different colored nail art pen, press a dot as petal.

Step 7:

What's a world without colors?
Add yellow colored dots in between the white dots you created on Step 5.

Now you can go to work with simple nail art designs like this! :D

I did say I will receive my NARS orgasm package today :(
Too bad, I still haven't, I did all the letter of authorization and stuffs, but forgot the ID
Oh well, Orgasm tomorrow then!

Have a great day!!!!
