As I’ve confessed in past posts, tweets and statuses….I am a Shellac-a-holic! I moved recently and haven’t been back to my favorite nail bar in a while so I’ve been getting a little creative with my nails at home. Aside from using my Konad nail art stamps, I don’t do any nail art because I can’t ever seem to get things to go right on both hands! *argh!*
I bought these two blue hues for about $3.00 each [Maybelline Color Show] which is really good for nail polish, and I was releived that the bright blue (Sapphire Siren) only needed 2 coats to be shiny and opaque. It’s a pretty blue that really is pretty subtle even though it looks really bright with flash.
I just used electrical tape to make a diagonal line on my nails and painted the tips with the shiny blue color (Blue Freeze). I only needed one coat and the effect (after it dried) was really pretty and wearable for every day.
I haven’t ever worn blue on my nails like this. I tend to stick with pinks, reds, corals and maybe orange if I’m feeling spunky.
I do like these colors! They’re fun and this simple “nail art” or design is fun and can be used with contrasting colors or similar shades of the same color.
What’s on YOUR nails now?
