My first Nails of the Day
I'm really into doing my own nails and learning how to make them look professional. I'm also on a constant search for a good quality CHEAP nail polish (ie under $6).
I was wearing a deep pink OPI color with chunky glitter top coat. I'd call it Malibu Barbie at the Disco. I took it off today because I have a model casting tomorrow and wanted to go for something more natural and professional.
I went with a classic, simple french manicure. A clear nude color for the base coat. I used Tammy Taylor's nail colour in Califorina French Pink. I swiped a white nail color (Tammy Taylor's nail colour in Califorina French White) on the tips of my nails in a one swipe motion. I had to do 2 or 3 coats to make the white opaque.
I topped it off with my trusty Barielle Ultra Speed Dry Manicure Extender. It helps the nail polish dry so much faster! I used an orange stick to help fix mistakes as well as a nail polish remover soaked Q-Tip.
Here is how it came out:
It's hard to master the one swipe method for doing tips but with a little bit of practice you can get the hang of it. Doing it with your non-dominant hand (my left in this case) takes a bit more practice. I used to paint my nails horribly like a 5th grader but now I can do a much cleaner job.
Very excited to have picked up Sinful Colors Rise and shine for $1.99 at Walgreens!
Here is a pic: (photo not mine it belongs to Beauty Judy) I wanted to show you the color though!
I'm so excited to try this out! But I think it will look best on short nails (that's just me). I just got my nails to grow out so I might wait a little white before triming them short. But when I do this will be the first polish I reach for.
I love the shape of the bottles and that they look so much like China Glaze.
Also looking forward to trying my new Sinful Colors Dream on:
