What do you do when you're behind on your coursework? Spend 90 minutes doing your nails of course!
I've always played it safe and stuck with a block colour, but since joining the blogging community a few moons ago, I've noticed that all of you seem to go a little wild with your nails. And why not? If you're creative and have a steady hand, then go for it! They add a cute little touch to your every day looks :)
Today I attempted a blue base with white polka dots, creating the dots with the tip of a bobby pin :)
I started off with filing and buffing my nails, trimming my cuticles and applying a conditioning cuticle oil (pictured above -available from Superdrug)
Then I applied two layers of Barry M "Blue Moon" nailpolish.
Finally, I placed some white nail polish on a piece of paper, dipped the bobby pin into the paper and dotted my finger nails. I had to apply to two layers of white polka dots to make sure that they truly contrasted from the blue.
Hooray! I love them :D Of course my left hand turned out a lot better than my right hand haha! But with a bit of practice I'm sure I can do better in by subsequent attempts :)
Do you want to be more adventurous with your nails?
