It was my friend's wedding, so how can I miss the chance of glamoring up? I feel like I haven't dressed up for a long time. There really is no reason for me to dress up anymore. I work and go home, work and go home, work and go home....no one cares how I look at work and no one cares how I look at home. I only dress a little better or I should say a little more formal when I am out to meet a client, but that doesn't count as glamoring up as I won't put glitter on myself and definition not going to wear a puffy dress for it. So, on my friend's big day, I finally get to dig out my 5 inch stilettos, puffy black dress and an over exaggeratedly bling necklace. And of course, I need some classy looking nails to go with the look.
Polishes I used from left to right:
Sally Hansen Triple Strong Strengthener
Quo Natural Beauty
Quo Sweet Revenge
Étude House #BK801
Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat
This is the decal I used for this nail art. Looks place, but do some mix and matches with nail polish, rhinestones and decal and there's another complicated looking manicure that's actually quite effortless.
You can get this here:
First, I painted 2 coats of the base color. For my ring finger, I used the Etude House polish and it dries very fast with a leather finish.
I love how opaque the Etude House polish is and the glitter shows up very well.
When the base color has dried, scrunch up a piece of plastic wrap into a ball and use it to dab some red on the index and pinky finger.
After everthing is dried, cut out the image you need.
Soak the image in a bowl of room temperature water.
The image will slide off the paper by now.
Then just arrange it on your nails and dab away the excess water with a tissue.
After arranging all the decals on your nails, apply a layer of top coat to seal in the design.
