I don't care if Monday's blue,
Tuesday's gray and Wednesday too
Thursday I don't care about you..
It's Friday, I'm in love!
I always find myself singing this song from The Cure every Friday. Maybe it's because the radio station I'm listening to plays songs from the 80's OR the fact that Friday makes me giddy inside like a teenager in love all over again!
I dedicate today's post to all nail art lovers out there. Of course, I won't forget those who have requested for simpler designs and I've already done 2 polka-dots and it's high time to move further. I've done a similar design in the past but this time, fireworks come in different direction and of course, I've used a new polish color from my dear friend Toma.
Orange lips are in, and orange toned nail polishes are definitely getting back it's mojo! Move over sweet pinks and let's start the fire!
Nail art tutorial for this week:
"Fireworks on Hot Coral" Nails
I can't stress enough on applying base coat prior to nail polish application to prevent your nails from yellowing and chipping. Apply 2 coats of your favorite polish. I am using a matte orangey-red polish shade from ELF called Hot Coral. If I may add, I voted earlier this week which explains the distracting indelible ink on my pointer finger.
Using my "dried up" L.A. Art Deco in white, creat 3 lines going to any direction you're comfortable with.
Tip from AMW: if you want to create thin lines but have limited access to nail art tools, you can purchase art brushes at local bookstores. If you're unsure of the brush quality, you can purchase L.A. Art Deco polish available in your area (for local readers: it's available at at Market! Market Department Store). You can re-use the brush.
To create festivity, use any sparkly polish and create lines between the white lines created on previous steps. I am using a gold one from L.A. Colors Art Deco in Gold.
Step 4:This step is purely optional, I apply dots randomly on areas that are still "spacious". I am just a sucker for extra step you know?
Making sure the nail art design is completely dry, top it with your favorite Top Coat to protect your hard work.
I celebrated the day I voted with a nice fireworks inspiration!
If you're comfortable in drawing lines, you can apply more colors!
If I may ask, those who have been telling me they've been wanting to try nail art but are scared to because it's too difficult, have you finally given it a try??? Please tell me yes! I swear it feels so good at times to look at your "masterpiece".
Have a wonderful weekend!
