NOTD: Lingerie For The Nails

4 years ago

I feel as though I haven`t done any freehand nail art in a while. There are a couple of manicures that I want to do, and one in particular that I have promised I would do (which I really want to do, and will), but I wanted to get this one up. I also feel as though I have managed to move away from accent nails. I don`t know why, because I love the way they look. I thought it would be really sexy to mix an animal print as the accent nails with a rich, wine red for the rest of the nails. With it being autumn, it seemed like it would just work perfectly. Don`t ask how that pairs, but in my mind it does. It is lingerie for the nails! And whoever said that nail designs don`t work on short nails?! Look at my baby stumps. While it could be argued that it would be more appealing on long nails, I think it works just fine on short nails. I started by applying a single coat of Sally Hansen Triple Strong to all of the nails. Then I focused on the wine colored nails. I chose Essie Bordeaux. I applied two coats. I can see in areas where a third coat may have been a good idea, but unless you are inspecting them up close, two coats is perfectly fine. As for the accent nails, I applied two coats of Sally Hansen Honey Whip. Then, with a tiny dotting tool, I used Sinful Colors Black on Black to create random little c shapes and blobs across the nail. Next, I went in with a slightly larger (but still very small) dotting tool and some Wet n Wild polish in the color Rustic and placed it inside of the c shapes. All of the nails were sealed with a single coat of Seche Vite. I think they are quite fun! I may even want to redo this manicure for Thanksgiving. The outfit I plan to wear would work out well with this manicure. The perfume I even plan to wear is quite a sassy one and would pair fabulously! I`m probably getting ahead of myself.
