My nails were bare for the last few days and I have really wanted to do this mani for such a long time now! So when I had some free time last evening I finally got around to doing it! Sure, mine isn't as good as the ones I saw but I am happy with how it turned out! Take a look :)
What you need:
- A white nail polish (for the base)
- A black nail polish
- Pale pink nailpolish
- Dotting tool/Toothpick
- A clear top coat
Begin by painting all your nails with an opaque white base. Let it dry sufficiently and then take you dotting tool/toothpick and with black polish draw irregular shapes (big and small) on all your nails, except the index fingernail. The best part is that these black shapes can be completely random and hence you don't need to be precise at all!
Next take the pink polish and paint a semi circle on the top of your index fingernail. Add black dots for the eyes and the nose. And small white dots in the eyes if you want to (it looks fine with just black too though). Fill in the borders of the index fingernail with some irregular black shapes.
Now comes the difficult part! Let everything dry properly...is it just with me or do all of you find this extremely tough? I am so prone to smudging my mani at this stage and it is so frustrating when that happens! Uggggh! Anyway, once it is dry, finish it with a clear top coat and you are done! Now sit back and admire your cute nails!! :)
Now I know this isn't work appropriate but hey it is so much fun to do. Maybe you'll could flaunt it over the weekend? What say? Would you give it a try?
P.S. I need to buy a quick dry top coat so badly! Any suggestions? Do let me know :)
