Sky was so nice to let me be the guest editor today.. she's completely wiped out from the HOT HOT weather outside!
So I've been seeing a lot of color blocking theme everywhere in fashion, and it includes our nail colors too! I like the idea of different colors on your nails because it gives us a sense of individuality. It may not be for everyone, ie my mom thought my nails just got dipped in dirt LOL. I still like it so I decided to post my first attempt for everone to see!
These are by no means any sort of instructions as I have not mastered it yet... and if you know me well.. i HATE painting my nails... I HATE getting my nails done as well because it is so boring sitting there (i don't like massages) But I do like nice looking nails... so I'll give you some product reviews:
Here is a summary of what is needed : nail polish remover, nail buff and file, your choice of nail color. You can pick two or three. I went with a plummy color (below) and also the Mark. Grey nail polish (so sexy hot.... buy it here) The silver and the grey would go really well together too.
step 1: remove any nail polish and buff nails smooth, then apply a nice base coat. I love the Orly base coat. The brush covers your nails very well so you pretty much only need one swipe
step 4: let air dry for about 5 mins then put the Seche Vite Top Coat on. I HIGHLY recommend the Seche Vite top coat. I've used OPI and Orly quick dry nail polishes before. I thought the OPI was great.... until I got the Seche Vite one... MUST BUY... you can get it at your local Ulta
Not bad for my first try I think... I just got a Sally Hansen nail polish pen, so I might put a review up on that and I'll have better technique to share!
