Nail Art Tutorial: Sparkly Blues

Hey everyone, it's another post for nail art!!!
Again, I am in no way expert on nail art, there's a whole lot of expert nail art bloggers out there! So enjoy seeing "imperfect" nail art! :D
Who cares right? lol

After my dark Halloween nails, I've decided to do something..well..still dark! hahaha I got really intrigued with the color of the polish. It's actually from a local brand called Caronia. It's a lovely blue color and I don't have the polish as I borrowed it! LOL

Step 1:

Apply 2 coats of your favorite polish (find the only lovely blue color made my Caronia)



Step 2:

Using a colored 2 way nail art pen, make 5 small dots going upwards



Step 3:

You can use the same color, or in my case, I chose a different color, and create 5 tiny dots on the other side

To make it easier,
I've drawn computer dots to show you the design
(in red)


Step 4:

Using a white polish, line a curve in the middle, again, doesn't have to be perfect :D



Step 5:

Top the white polish with a silver or any glittery polish to make it shine!



Step 6:

Top it with a coat of top coat. I've used Sally Hansen's Base and Top Coat



Because of the Top coat,
everything just shines so the design wasn't captured well in photo :)

But you got the drift :)



A couple of days ago, I just reviewed my Sally Hansen's Base and Top Coat. I just wanted to add something on my review, just to let you know, I have done this nail a week ago! And I did explained the chip that my pinkie finger has from the torture of typing. The one week mark has passed and I'll show you how my nails look like at the moment...yes..at the moment! I just stopped blogging for a bit and took shots!



Right hand, everything intact



What do you think?
Well aside from the chip, it's not bad at all!
Still shiny, looks new!
Darn chip, why do you have to show up?
Have a great Wednesday or Thursday dearest!

  1. i think it does a pretty good job considered for the affordable price of sally hansen! Maybe next time just add more top coat on the pinky? I don't know if that would help but i guess it's worth a shot :)
