So after a LONG week (ok, maybe not that long…) I’m finally back with my manicure!
It’s not that I don’t like my natural nails, but…I was really eager to continue to experiment with new nail design and pattern!
Also, you will notice that I had to cut my nails REALLY short because of a personal problem (won’t go too much in details) but let’s just say that I think I’ve never had my nails so short before. I had them short when I was younger because of my piano lessons, but never THAT short. So I tried to find a nail design that would still look cute and nice on very short nails (especially since I have very small hands, and small hands = small nails).
So here it is!
As always, I started off by putting one coat of my OPI nail envy base coat. Then I alternatively put 3 coats of OPI Alpine Snow and Essie Cute as a Button on my nails (alternating each colour on both hands)
Alpine Snow is a very white opaque white and very creamy. I could have only put 2 coats, but I really wanted my nails to be very very opaque. Essie Cute as a Button is a very nice pink almost coral nail polish that is also very creamy. Both were very easy to apply on the nails.
Then after waiting a bit, I used my QUO by Orly Nail Dotter Duo Tool with the bigger end, and started applying polka dots on my nails. For this, I only applied one “coat”.
Then I waited for my nails to be fully dry and applied my Sally Hansen Diamond top coat and Nicole by OPI Drying Drops.
I really like the final result and think it looks very summery!
Don’t you? 😛
Have a nice day!
