Nail Art Tutorial: "Wonder Woman" Nails

Hello beautiful people!!! It's FRIDAY!!!! I am so happy to rest for the weekend. The hardest week would be the week after the long Christmas Holidays! :) I'm sure a lot of you are nodding eh?

I've missed last week's Nail Art Tutorial. I've done a simple nail art with big rhinestone but hubby wasn't home that time so I did my nails without my "loving photographer" lol And come to think of it, taking shots of your own face is hard but work-able, but taking shots of your "wet nails" is way harder! LOL And I can't seem to find the tripod...so yeah, I am yakking once again and let me go straight to the point! hahahah

I came up with this nail art design, well it's not even a design as I've done boring French Tip with a simple Star Jewel from a generous Colleague who gave it to me as gift.

After doing my nails, the colors kinda reminded me of "girl power" "ass-kicking" "original hot babe"

Wonder Woman!!!
(the only difference is, her stars are white and mine are in blue)




Step 1:

Apply any base coat you have. I applied 2 coats of Sally Hansen's Cotton Pink Polish. Let dry.



Step 2:


Using any bloody red polish, (in my case I've used The Face Shop) and apply on the tip of the nails. You can do it vertically or horizontally (as long as you're comfortable). If it's not even, it's OK!



Step 3:


Using my "yellow nail art pen", I applied a thin line right below the Red French Tip. (you can top the yellow line with glitters if you like.)



And the semi-ending result looks like this
(you can end here if you don't have rhinestones)



Step 4:

Apply any clear polish on top of the design, but before doing so, make sure the French tip and lines are completely dry.






Step 5:


While the clear polish is still wet, put a star rhinestone wherever your heart desires. Let dry. (you can also choose whatever sizes or shapes of rhinestones you have available, you wanna put diamonds? Sure! Just hold onto your dear fingers for life! lol)



Final Step:

Apply another clear coat to protect the rhinestone from falling.



And now I'm ready to sit on my transparent plane
and wear my sexy

Wonder Woman Outfit!


s

Added more rhinestones on the thumb nail :)



I wonder if Superman will find me gorgeous *adjusts bra* :P

Ain't it simple?
Yeah, I do love simple nail designs too you know!

I may go crazy with those designs
but hey, I am a simple gal!
Smile ya 'all!
Stay Happy!

    Jenn, thanks !!!

    Glow Chaser, sad the say, I'm NOT ambidextetrous and never will! LOL I know you won't believe me but I can't form a good word using my left hand... PROMISE..oh no! thanks for adding me to the blog roll but not as Nail art queen! the real ones out there would probably be mad! I tried adding you but it won't work, says URL problems dang..I'll try it again ! :) thanks

    Hapi, tks

    Ury, thank you for liking it

    Musicalfanlovesminerals, it depends, if you coat it well with a good top coat, mine can last for 2 weeks, bigger rhinestones fall off faster, but you can always re-glue it :) smaller ones I believe lasts longer :)
