Nail Art Tutorial: "Splash of Sparkly Color" Nails


Happy Monday to all Monday lovers and haters!  I heard a lot of "ayes" on haters right?  Let's all bring in positive energy in the start of our week!  And because I am on the positive side of the energy, I will be sharing another nail art tutorial for the positive splash!

I wanted something free, something on "going with the flow" and I came up with these nails...


Step 1:
Apply your preferred base coat prior to polish application.  Apply 2 coats of Caronia polish in Crystal (Frosted).  Let dry.




Step 2:
Create French Tip using  Elianto nail polish in Shimmery Burgundy.  French tip does not have to be perfect as it will be covered anyways.



Step 3:
Create a thin line in the middle section of your nails using L.A. Art Deco in Black.  Create a sharper tip at the edge.

Step 4:
Randomly create lines using reds and silver glitter polishes, same from L.A. Art Deco.   This is the time to be creative with color combination.


Step 5:
Using a dotting tool or 2 way Prettynail's Dotting pen in white, create dots on random areas.


Step 6:
Top your nail art design with your favorite top coat.



I seldom create designs like these as it's a bit far from my personality.  As you all know, I'm more of dainty nail lover but going beyond what is expected is the way to go!  Move out of your comfort zone and you'll be surprised how much in life you've missed!  And I have to clarify, I am NOT preaching! *laughs*

Hope my nail art tutorial for this week inspires you to think out of the box and do something  you've always thought you can't do!  No to stealing and killing ok? *laughs*

Have a gorgeous week ahead!
Keep smilin'

Stay happy!
