diy: blue with white polka dot nail art
Wednesday, 20 March 2013
up until recently, the only person i had ever seen wearing nail polish was my grand-mother. so i rarely ever wore any, except when i was little and my grand-ma would pass me some; you know, a girly activity to do together. ...then i was inspired by memorable days & burkatron, so i decided to give it a shot. i was amazed at how fun it was and how pretty it turned out. i'll definitely be doing more so stay tuned!

mermaid glitter nail polish by forever 21
white nail art pen by sally hansen
first, apply two base coats of beach bum blu
second, apply mermaid glitter to tips of nails
third, draw lines & dots with nail art pen
fourth, apply a coat of clear nail polish to seal
note: it's important to add the clear top coat to seal otherwise your design will rub off within a day.
sally hansen nail art pen
likes: easy to apply. dries quickly. comes in many different colors. can remove mistakes with water. looks pretty.
dislikes: a bit expensive for what it is ($8 cad). if you don't apply a clear top coat of polish it rubs off within a day. it's very watery. need to reapply more than once to get desired result.
