I know I know I know I know I know: it's not Friday.
But I have class all day on Saturdays so it feels like my weekend starts tonight...
I had a long week, can we just leave it at that?
What better way to celebrate its end than with super glittery nails?
I honestly can think of nothing (except cookies for dinner and a kitty purring loudly in your lap... which is happening right now *bliss*).
NYC - Lincoln Center / H&M Nail Polish - Confetti time / Delia*s Nail Polish - Gold Shimmer
I know this is going to sound like a complicated procedure, but I promise this nail art is anything but:
1.) Over your base coat, start out with two coats of your base color (or one, if that's all it takes for opacity).
2.) Once dry, take your gold polish and put a dot/glob at the base of your nail; using a cheap eye-makeup sponge feather it upwards to create a gradient about a third of the way up your nail.
3.) Once that's dry, apply your glitter over the base of your nail (where the gold is most opaque); then feather that upwards like before and repeat two or three times until of desired glitter opacity.
You've now got yourself a manicure worth celebrating (regardless of what day of the week it is).
Let me know if you try this out!
What's your favorite way to unwind after a long hard week at work/school (or, like in my case, both)?
Do you ever take the time to do fancy-shmancy nail art?
