Hey y’alls. This post is a lot different than most, as it doesn’t contain something edible. It’s just a little DIY nail art technique I saw on Pinterest (are you addicted, like me?).
Yeah, I said “y’alls” and “nail art”. In my head both sound like “ya’llz, nailz artz!”
Anyway, how I did it. I used:
Essie basecoat (not pictured)
2 coats of Essie Blanc
A straigntened out bobby pin (if you’re fancy you can use a dotting tool)
OPI Black Onyx
Essie Mint Candy Apple
E.L.F Mango Madness
INM Out-the-Door top coat (my very fave top-coat EVAR…that’s why I have the big girl bottle)
For the dots I dropped little bits of nail color onto a post it and dipped the end of the bobby pin in the color, then dotted my nail in a random pattern. I did one hand at a time and one color at a time, before moving on to the next. I wiped the end of the pin off between colors with a little bit of remover soaked cotton. I let the dots dry a bit before applying the top coat. That was it, not rocket science…or baking science for that matter.
Other than my messy cuticles (it will most definitely come off the skin surrounding the nail after I do some dishes or wash my hair…this has been my experience!), I’m pretty pleased with the results! I have been obsessed with all of the creamy colors that are out this season…so, you may see more of this nail goodness.
I hope y’allz don’t mind.
