I recently pinned some nail art ideas and was excited to implement them. I used these two as inspiration:
Begin by choosing the base color. Choose one that you can find a glittery version of. I used gray as my base coat (two coats), followed by silver (which is glittery). For the glittery layer, take off as much nail polish as you can and lightly brush over the tips (middle to tips). Of course, let each coat dry before moving to the next.
Then use the straight pin head idea to apply the polka dot color. Let this color really dry before applying a clear top coat.
I used New York Color nail polish (least expensive and they have coupons!) and Sally Hansen nail polish:
Gray base coat: Sally Hansen Wet Cement
Silver accent layer: New York Color Tribeca Silver
Peach polka dots: New York Color Peaches 'N Cream
Clear top coat: New York Color Long Wearing Clear
What is your favorite nail polish combination? Do you wear nail art or just simple colors? What do you think of the new peach color?
