As I have mentioned in the past, I am really enjoying Lauren Conrad's new website The Beauty Department . They always have fun hair, makeup, nail, clothing and decorating ideas that are a little out of the box. Take a peek at the website, you may be surprised at what you find. My newest find is nail art! A genius idea−applying nail polish to scotch tape to create shapes and lines to add to your mani, or pedi. Step 1:
Water Marble Tutorial. Supplies: orange stick or toothpick, shot glass or cup (the smaller the circumference, the less polish you end up wasting), room temp. water, nail polish, tape (optional, but it helps with the clean up) I like to begin by prepping my nails with base coat and one coat of polish. Here I used China Glaze Innocence for a nice neutral base.
I've been wanting to try out paint splattered nails for ages now, however it seems like alot of hard work and also kind of messy! So me being supposedly 'savvy' and all I came up with a probably just as messy idea...but slightly more fun and prettier. Also it looks alot more delicate than having a paint splattered effect and alot less nail arty and more wearable. Now like I say... it is kind of messy so you will need at least one face wipe/baby wipe and something to do it on like the back of a magazine.
I loved how my glittery gradient mani turned out so much that I decided to do a variation on it, using the night sky as my inspiration! Here's how I did it: 1. Prep I grabbed deep navy , silver glitter , and gold glitter polish along with my favorite top coat . I also grabbed an orange stick and some nail art rhinestones .
