Dripping Nail Art

For this mani, I used a tutorial by Chalkboard Nails. I painted these last week, but I didn’t have enough time to post them. I’m really happy with how these turned out-great tutorial! I used Covergirl Midnight Magic, Sinful Colors Snow Me White, and Kiss Nail Art white striper.

Roses

I saw this design on someone at the mall, and decided to try it. It took a longer time than usual because of the different layers of paint, but it was relatively simple. This mani makes for a cute, easy, floral print. My base color is Sally Hansen Blue Me Away!.

French Nails

Today I used loose leaf ring guards to make French nails. Then I took it a bit farther and added a swirl design.

First, I added a coat of clear nail polish. Next, I cut a loose leaf guard in half, using one half to follow the edge of the pink of my nail.

Then, using the other half of the guard, I covered the rest of my nail edge.

I then painted my nail tip white and peeled off the loose leaf guards while the paint was wet.

Then I started the swirl by painting the “stalk” and “leaves” of my swirl with a small brush.

Finally I added the swirl at the top of the “stalk” and, once it dried, added my topcoat.

For this manicure I used (from lift to right) Invisible by Sally Hansen, black and white Kiss Nail Art Paint, Sally Hansen Advanced Hard As Nails Strengthening Top Coat, and the loose leaf ring guards. Enjoy!

This polish is a metallic navy blue that never appears black, making one of my favorite nail polishes. The shade of navy blue varies depending on the lighting. It sparkles while in direct sunlight. The first coat is opaque in some places, definitely streaky. The second coat evened things out. I used two coats.
