Nail Art Tutorial: "Creative Girly" Nails

Happy Morning everyone! Now, didn't Monday passed by quickly??? Oopsss, I believe it's still Monday for the other side of the world! But hey, cheer up!!! It's almost over! :)

Gosh, I sound like I'm in a chirpy mood eh?

I actually am NOT! Allergies are crawling back haunting me the whole week! I am just staying positive or I'll grow an extra hand to scratch myself all over! Not a good sight!

If you see me scratchin', at least I am proud to say I am scratching with great looking Nails! LOL Where did that come from???

Here's my nails for the week!
I've cut my nails short, and short nails can still do nail art!
I am proving a point here! :D

Step 1:
Apply base coat prior to nail polish application. Apply 2 coats of Sally Hansen's Purple Power nail polish. Let dry.

Step 2:

Using ELF's polish in Bubblegum Pink, draw diagonal lines in different directions on each nail. You can be creative! It's your nails! Own it!

Step 3:

Using L.A. Colors Art Deco polish in Red, draw a thin line, same direction as the pink polish.

I added a white line on the ring fingers

Step 4:

Draw dots using my White Nail Art Pen. Again use your creativity

Step 5:

Draw flower on some portions of your nails and apply rhinestones.

Step 6:

Apply glittery polish. I am using Caronia's Silver Glitter.

Step 7:

Apply your choice of top coat (I am using Sally Hansen's Base and Top Coat) to prevent the nail art from disappearing or rhinestones from getting lost!

Now you own sweet looking nails! :)

How does your nails look like this week?
Bare? Or colored?
Keep smilin' Stay happy!
