Good morning everyone!
Recently I discovered the wonderful fun of nail art! I've always loved painting my nails, but to date even tho my polish collection was impressive, the most outrageous thing Id ever done is paint them all differing colours.
One of my good friends posted me a box of bits to play with and I have to say, I am totally hooked. A lot of people on my facebook page have said they wish they knew how, have no idea how or cant do fun things because they are new to it all. Im here to say Nuh huh! Nail art for the most part, is EASY! It just requires a little practice. I had overwhelming requests for a tutorial on the ladybirds I had on last week, and so well, here it is.
The original image isnt the greatest, its the only one I took and by the time I decided to go ahead with the tutorial Id already worn them for a week and they were looking less then perfect. I really wanted to have this up earlier, but I've been out all week with a cold and haven't managed to blog a thing!
If this is something people would like to see regularly, please let me know. I'm more then happy to add up my designs when I do them. They won't be anything amazingly awesome, because hello, beginner here, but you know me, firm believer in sharing knowledge regardless of skill level. Everyone can learn from someone else!
So lets get started. These are the supplies I used. Polish remover, a base and top coat, black, white, red and green, a thin brush, a dotting tool and my handy dandy remover pen (best invention ever!!)
Start with a base coat. I used Ulta3 for this.
Do one coat of white, this will help your green pop if it isnt quite opaque enough. I used BYS white from the white/red duo, which I picked up in Kmart for 50 cents! Bargain!
Then just a top coat once its all dried. For that I used Seche Vite Fast dry top coat which I love! Then just give them a bit of a clean up with a cotton bud or remover pen, or even a brush in polish remover, whichever way you like to roll.
Thats it, repeat for the rest of your nails. Told you it was easy!
