Nail Art Tutorial: "California Girl Katy Perry" Nails

Happy Tuesday friends!  I've been "trying" to be energetic after getting sick over the weekend.  So I'm listening to a lot of "feel good" music and "California Girls" by Katy Perry is definitely part of my song list!  I've watched the music video many times and it caught my heart because it has everything childish and girly!  Just look at how hot Katy Perry look!  Wait, self check.... yup!  I'm still a girl!  *laughs*



I actually got inspired to do a "California Girl" Music Video inspired nails by Katy Perry because it's such a feel good color!  I have to thank Sol from Digital Traincase for the lovely base color from Orly!!!  I could find similar color elsewhere!  Made my day!!!


Step 1:
Apply base coat prior to polish application.  Let dry.  Apply 2 coats of your favorite baby pink polish.  I am using Orly Nail Lacquer in Cotton Candy.



Step 2:
Making sure the base color is dry.  I create "dripping" effect with Elianto Polish in Turquoise.  Remember not to be too perfectionist, drippings aren't supposed to be in perfect shape :)


Step 3:
Drop Elianto Polish in white or any matte white polish brand on a sheet of paper.


Use a dotting tool or toothpick to create dots on the Turquoise color.  You can do random dots on different directions. You choice, your creativity.


Step 4:
Never forget to top your nail art with a nice top coat to protect our nail art.  Make sure to let the dots dry prior to doing so!


Sit back and enjoy your "Katy Perry/California Girls" looking nails
Don't you just love to bite the colors? 
Well hopefully not my fingers! :P


Have a wonderful day!
Keep smilin'

Stay happy!

I also check mostly of our local brands has toluene, bisphenyl-A phytates, etc. in the ingredients list. .
