Corpse Nails

Since I woke up a little early today (and was confident my doctor’s office staff had a good sense of humor) I decided to do a quick tutorial on how to sponge in this zombie-like manicure. Same deal with the beetle nails, this is all about the light sponging and layering. I started with a base of Essie Great Expectations in 3 coats (for a color like this, I don’t mind the extra work, and because it’s on the sheer side it’s a good match for this design) then used ZOYA Charity to sponge around the tips. Couple of things to note here: first, you see those spots near the tip where there’s basically no Charity? That’s because I had too much polish on my sponge and was picking up polish that I’d already put down. Anyway, next step! Don’t forget, less than a week left for the Winter Goodie Giveaway! Quilted Nails. DIY Drippy Nails. We were immediately inspired the moment we saw bare nails with blood-like, drippy polish accompany Prabal Gurung‘s spring collection at New York Fashion Week.

DIY Drippy Nails

As a child (and, I'll admit it, full grown adult), my favourite princess was Ariel from The Little Mermaid.

I love the idea of a beautiful sea siren with her flowing locks and beautiful jewel tone fish scales. Now that it's summer and I'm all about hitting the beach, I've been inspired by my favourite princess to bring you a mani fit for a mermaid! We first came across the fish scale technique on this blog and we loved the idea of easily creating it by just using your handy dandy dotting tool. It's definitely a good idea to play around with the colours on this mani too. We thought it was only appropriate to use aquas, teals and blues for an underwater theme. Using this technique and style, we came up with a pretty snazzy (if we do say so ourselves) and simple manicure. We'll be dotting to create an accent nail on the ring finger then dotting on every other nail to create a french tip of scales.

Dazzle Dust Nail Tutorial

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. Also your nail polish of choice and a pigment or dazzle dust!

I used a Barry M Dazzle Dust in Brass (100) £4.50 and the nail polish is by Beauty UK in Smokey Lilac £1.79. 1) Firstly you need to give your nails one coat of nail polish. 2) Once dry you can apply the second coat. 4) You can either place the pigment on every finger all in one go or do one nail at a time. 5) Then you basically blow the pigment in the direction of the nail.
