For a long time I’ve wanted to try out this technique, but it seemed very daunting. I think I need some practice, but it was very fun and I can’t wait to try it out again.

I wasn’t totally happy with them, but the colors did show up better in person. My poor camera was so confused by all the colors and sparkles. :)

ORLY in White Tips, AC-NED-82, AC-NED-81, L’Oreal Bijou Gems in B. Outrageous, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Lightening, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Snappy Sorbet, AC-NED-90, Sally Hansen HD in Wavelength, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Mint Sprint, ORLY in Gumdrop, AC-NED-94, OPI in Not Like The Movies.

I was inspired by this tutorial which I found through this amazing tumblr. (Which, I was introduced to by my BF, might as well continue the credit-where-credit-is-due train of thought.)

I chose a lighter base mostly because I am so in love with my new OPI in Not Like The Movies. :) Seriously, such a great color, neutral but with a bit of understated rock star glam.

This is the result of my first set of dotting tools, I was really excited to try them out. :) My dad said he preferred my more sedate toe design haha

(More than a week later looking alright even though I skipped the topcoat. I just love how much longer a pedi lasts than a mani.)

 

Elegant Black French w/Jewel & Silver Accents 05/13/2011

This is an excellent look for those who find it hard to free-hand the straight line required for a traditional French manicure. I personally find it much easier to paint an angled line, it makes it much less noticeable if your line isn’t perfectly straight, or if the angles aren’t all quite the same. I started with the black tips and once I got them close to the right shape I took a thin brush with silver sparkles to neaten up the edge of the black. While the silver polish was wet I pressed a jewel at the point of the V, then slicked on a clear coat to seal it all in!

I started out with stripes on just one nail and then kept adding them, I think in the end I put stripes on all my nails, just in varying amounts. Sally Hansen Salon in Sterling. Kiss Nail Art Paint in Black.
