Nail Art Tutorial: "Chocolate Dipped" Nails

Nail Art day!!!! It's humpy Wednesday and I wanted to create something that's close to women heart --- Chocolates!!!!

Chocolates warms the heart, proclaims love, an upper drug!!!!
So I am sharing a wonderful and legal drug to everyone!

Step 1:

Apply base coat prior to any nail polish application. Using Maybelline Colorama in Hint of Taupe, apply 2 coats and let dry.

Step 2:

Apply P&J 003 Nail Polish in brown in a diagonal manner going to whichever direction you want.

Step 3:

Using L.A. Colors Art Deco in Glitter gold, line between the brown and taupe polish color to separate the 2 shades.

Step 4:

Draw dots using a white nail art pen or dotting tool.

Step 5:

Apply rhinestones of your choice, I applied a rectangular rhinestones to create running lines :)

Step 6:

Apply Top Coat of choice to protect nail art.

Chocolate Dipped Fingernails

with a Twist! :)

I was told by some of my readers that they cannot draw, so I've decided to show everyone that you can use different polish colors to create diagonal lines and that's enough! :)

Hope my weekly nail art tutorials
inspires even one of you out there!
Take care and keep smilin!
Stay happy!

    Miemiemie, while the top coat is wet, you apply the rhinestones. I actually sell those rhinestones as I can't seem to find shiny ones down here :) You can start by doing simple dots with a dotting tool or just apply dots with another polish color :)
