Happy Tuesday people of the world! It's non-working holiday today but I'm obviously at work NOT feeling lazy nor sleepy! (Power of Positivity). After a week long rest for my nails, I've decided to go back to the basics of "romanticism" because I can't be childish for the rest of my life! There should be times I act my age right? Well, this week's nail art tutorial exudes a "bit" of maturity! Let's go back to feminine nails but I've decided to combine my all-time favorite nail art designs!
Gradient nails + Floral Nails + Tiny bit of glitter =
Gradient Nails with Hawaiian Feel
Apply your favorite Base Coat to protect your nails. This seriously works as my nails aren't as yellow as before. I used ELF's Nail Polish in White and apply 2 coats of it. Letting it dry completely!
To create gradient nails, I am using an eyeshadow sponge from a palette in which I don't use much. I applied Caronia Polish in Stellar on one side of the sponge tip applicator with a light brushing motion making sure all areas of the sponge tip are covered.
If you applied too much, you can dab it on a sheet of paper first then dab it on top of your white polish. Gently create gradient effect by dabbing lightly on the lower portion of the nails, applying more on the top most portion.
On the other side of the sponge tip applicator, gently brush on Caronia Polish in Gold Rush (similar step as above).
Gently dab the Caronia Gold Rush Polish at the uppermost portion of your nails for that extra sparkle.
Apply a coat of top coat one fingernail at a time. While top coat is still wet....
Drop 5 drops of Prettynails' 2 Way Nail Art Pen polish in white to create flower petals. The reason for the wet top coat is to make the dots spread out into a bigger, more natural looking petals as shown on photo below. This effect makes the nail art looks more "acrylic" rather than regular nail art design.
As you go on the rest of the fingernails for Steps 4 and 5, go back and add up dots when top coat is dry.
Using L.A. Colors Art Deco Polish in Gold, create a flower bud by dotting the middle portion of the flower.
Making sure all the designs are completely dry, apply top coat of your choice to prolong the life of your nail art design and to make it shinier. I am using Elianto's Top Coat.
Sit back, enjoy as you sip on your favorite drink, be girly if you want but I still prefer to slurp on my ice cream like I mean it!!! *slurps* :P
This may be just another regular floral nails but doesn't it feel good to have nail art designs you worked hard for? I know it makes me happy!
By the way, how's the contest going? I am really happy with the response and a lot of people are starting to do good deeds! Well on my part, I've done another random good deed too, I won't be spilling the details but I definitely made someone smile yesterday!
