Oh you love it!
Ok, so let’s kick off the weekend with some fun. Two words. NAIL ART!
I must admit, I’m not a fan of elaborate nail art. Personally the classic French Manicure is a winner. When I’m a tad “bored” with the classic look, I whip out a shocking colour nail varnish and apply it over the white tips only. That gives a fun sexy look. At this moment I’m typing with shocking pink tips.
Anyway, this new form of nail art is done with water! It’s called WATER MARBLE NAIL ART.
Not the official name, but whatever.
When you’re on YouTube again check it out! Absolutely amazing!
You start off with a little glass of ROOM TEMPERATURE water.
Add drops of GOOD QUALITY NAIL VARNISH.
Alternate colours. Add any colours you want.
Take a toothpick and make a design.
Dip your finger quickly through the “art”.
As your finger is in the cup, remove the excess varnish drifting on the water with a bud. If you don’t, it will make a huge mess.
But remember to cover your skin around your nail with sticky tape!!!! Or you’ll have nail art on your fingers too!
What I did last night was, I got some fake nails. Added a teeeeensy weeeeensy amount of glue on the back, then stuck on a tooth pick and practiced with that! I must say, IT WORKED! The nails actually came out pretty darn awesome.
I thought, wow. This sticky tape is a mission. So I got some old plastic gloves from my makeup school kit. Cut up tiny holes on the points. Once I put it on, it stretched out enough to have my nail exposed, but kept the rest of my finger safe! Try it.
Unfortunatley I don’t have a pic of the nail art I did on the falsies last night. 😦
Just go onto YouTube and type in some MARBLE WATER NAIL ART. (Or however you wanna type it) It’s fascinating!!!!
Try it! Lemme know if it worked for you!
PS: IT’S A MAJOR MESS! HAHA. So have everything prepped! Towels, buds, water, cups. Remember to open all the nail varnish already. Will save you time!
