I have this crazy theory that wearing sparkly things or bright colors will make me feel better when I'm sick. But both combined? I should be better by tomorrow, then! ;) Seriously though, I was contacted by Born Pretty, an online nail & beauty store, to review a couple of their many polishes. They were great to work with, I received my polishes in a reasonable amount of time, and was very pleased with the colors. With summer in mind, I chose the neon pink (it glows under blacklight! I tested it!) and the nude shimmer polish. These colors are cute for a fun night out or prom! I decided to do this quick and easy triangle nail design. Enjoy!
- post-it notes (or tape)
- pink neon polish (via born pretty)
- nude shimmer gold polish (via born pretty)
- base/top coat
Apply base coat and allow to dry.
Apply first color lightly and allow to dry. Apply a light second coat if needed.
Once nails are completely dry, cut the Post-it note into two triangles. Apply them to the nail, overlapping them, and leaving an exposed triangle.
Paint exposed part the other color and allow to dry. I painted some nails gold with pink triangles and some pink with gold triangles. Carefully remove the triangles. I like using Post-its instead of tape because they aren't as sticky, but tape does work if careful.
Seal with a top coat. Enjoy!
WHY NOT TRY:
- All pink nails
- All gold nails
- Four pink nails with a gold accent nail
- Four gold with one pink
- Stripes or polka dots
