Nail Art Tutorial: Fruity Fimo Nails

Happy Monday everyone!!!  I've decided to do a new kind of nail art this week and thanks to my dear beautiful friend eBeautyblog for sharing her FIMO nails which inspired me to purchase one and do the same! :)

Here's how it looks like


Step 1:
Apply a base coat prior to polish application.  Apply 2 coats of ELF Polish in Nude.  Let dry.




Step 2:
Using L.A. Colors Art Deco polish in white, create random lines.



Step 3:
Using Prettynails' 2 way nail art pen in glittery gold, create random lines again on top of the white lines.



NOTE:
If you don't have FIMO clay, you can stop here, put on top coat and VOILA! :)



Step 4:
Dot on any top coat or clear polish on areas you want to put on FIMO clay, press on the fruity Fimo polymer clay, pressing the ends using any object, in my case, I use the nail art dotting tool.


 


Step 5: 
Top the Fimo Polymer clay at once with a top coat to prevent it from folding up.



I believe some would like to use a nail glue to make it stay longer, I don't have it!  So I opted for polish to make the clay stick.  Hope you like my nail art for the week :)



Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

Hope you have a great week ahead!

    Arezu, it's actually not stickers but they are made of Polymer Clay, you can search on ebay for "Fimo Nails" and there are a lot of sellers who sell them, either pre cut or the uncut ones which are cheaper :)

    Carine, so far, I type for more than 8 hours a day, and so far , it didn't bother me! Probably the placing and making sure it doesn't have sharp edges :)

    Jean, on ebay, it costs less than $5.00 (shipping not included) for 25 sticks or more, really depends on the seller :) But they're not that expensive, You can purchase the precut version which are more expensive but its hassle free :D
