Good day gorgeous people of the world! How's the week treating you so far? Good? Bad? Keep your chin up no matter how tough life is! We've gone this far!
Enough with the inspirational talk! *laughs* I know, I tend to preach! I guess I'm way older than my age! I do sound like a grandma!
Last weekend, I had a couple of minutes to spare so I browsed through YouTube (which I seldom do nowadays due to a circumstance called...work! *lol*) and chanced up a lovely YT guru "Love4Nails". She's done a very cute nail art tutorial which caught my attention and I'm inspired to do my own version! I've used 3 different shades for this tutorial! There's my love for pinks and reds I've added brown! We all know pinks and browns are perfect match! On makeup and nail art!
Apply your preferred base coat prior to nail polish application. AMW is using The Face Shop's Base Coat. Apply only 1 coat of ELF's Bubblegum Pink polish. The reason for it is that I'll be layering 3 different polish colors!
As soon as the first coat of base polish dries, apply a hot red polish diagonally! I am using ELF's Polish in Red.
Tip: If you do not have steady hands, you can use a thin brush to draw an outline first, before filling the rest of the polish color!
Same as step 2, wait for the 2nd polish color to dry up and apply a dark brown nail polish from Paul & Joe.
Note from AMW: You can clean up your nails, apply top coat and you're ready to go with this simple nail art! If you want to make your life more complicated like I do, continue reading please! :D
Use Prettynails' 2 way nail art pen in silver glitter and apply thin, diagonal lines going on different directions as you prefer.
To make the glitters more obvious and create a nice "3d" look. Top the silver glitter with a gold glitter from L.A. Art Deco in Gold.
Do not forget to protect your hard work with your preferred top coat. I am using TFS Top Coat.
Another tip: As soon as the nails are completely dry, you can use a cotton bud and wet it with your preferred acetone and clean up the sides of your fingernails for a cleaner, more sophisticated look!
Another pat on my back for another nail art tutorial! I am seriously on the roll!
I hope you like my nail art for the week! Keep that smile coming and give me that big energy!!!
