"Simply Un-'identical' Nails" tutorial

Another nail design post..actually i changed my mind about cutting my nails..hehe

I ditched the checkered design because i can't do my right nails, it will take lots of practice for my left hand to do things that my right hand can do... (im right handed)

And also because i don't have anything else to as raining now..just the right weather to be lazy...I was watching Charmed the whole day..i grew up watching it & i love it!

I was thinking of experimenting with flower designs, but since im about to run out of polish remover i can't go wasting it...especially now that i can't go out that easily because of the rain...have to buy The Face Shop polish remover..i love it!

Anyways, i did this

This is just a 2 tone design. If you read my post about the artist brushes, i said that im a minimalist when it comes to nail designs..i just like something simple & not overwhelming, that's why i came up with this one. One hand is 'different' with the other, which i think makes it all the more fun & funky!

I wanna take a break from the black & white that i mostly use...& i just choose a metallic brown plus a nude pink polish...still pretty contrasting,right?

Let's start first with the things that you'll be needing (as always!)...
  • base & top coat
  • 2 contrasting nail color
  • clear or glittered polish
  • toothpick (or dotting tool)
Instructions: (some pics are blurry...sowee)
  • On clean nails, apply the base coat & the base color...Let it dry.
  • Then apply the contrasting color on the side on the nails making a triangular shape with the edges of your so..Let it dry
  • Take a toothpick then dip it to make dots...One end can be used with one color..the other for another color
  • Swirl the toothpick on the polish to get more polish, then make 3 dots on the triangle that you made...Since the thumb got a bigger space, then you can make 4 dots..

  • Apply clear or glittered polish to set it off...before you finish it with a top coat
Then you are done!

What makes this nice is that they are 'identical' the same time, they are different!
I think i rather like my left hand...with the nude pink as a base...

I dunno if im gonna be going out this weekend, but then if i would, at least i know that my nails are up to anything!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Don't forget the deadline of my contest...
I will announce the winners July 20 evening (Philippines Standard Time)
