Weekend Nails: Curlicue Design

It has been a long time since i made a weekend nails post.

As what i said before, i have planned to have long nails & part of my nail care routine is to let my nails 'breathe', so i have not applied nail polish for quite sometime now except from the nail art that i had together with kite. I don't like seeing yellow nails for they look so neglected & malnourished..LOL

So i tried using the polish that i bought from Beauty & Butter.. the number 39 which is a blue sheen polish. I have to say that it actually look pretty by itself. This is the nail design that we will be doing...

Materials needed:
  • base & top coat
  • your choice of base color
  • white polish
  • silver polish or your choice of polish for lining
  • black polish or black acrylic
  • detailing brush

Once you have applied your base coat, choose your base color. In my case, it's a blue one

Then put a streak of white polish in the middle of your nails like so...

Then this is hard part...With your detailing brush, draw the curlicue design on the white streak with black polish. Actually it's better to use acrylic but mine had already dried up so i just used black polish instead.

It would look like this afterward.

To make it look neat then line the white polish with silver polish so to have a neat edge.

Then clean the edges of your nails before applying top coat.

Ta daa!

This design would take practice. See how messy my ring fingernail is? I practiced on this nail first so it looks like that.hehehe.

Hope y'all have a great weekend,hunnies!
Jaa ne~!
