Nail Art

Well, with that boring post title, I am grateful that you are still reading my blog post!

When it comes to nail art, sometimes I have so many ideas that it is hard for me to choose one to try, then at other times I struggle to come up with something. Of late I've experienced the latter. As I write this, I should have thought to do this earlier, but I really should be jotting my ideas down when they pop into my head. My brain only really works well when I don't need it to, lol.

A little brain storming, well more than a little, I came up with an idea...

Essie nail polish (label is gone) and NYC "Lolly Pop", plus my handy dotting tool and a little striping tape.

Using nail striping tape as a guide, I used both shades on my nails, the shades separated by a diagonal line.Then using one colour at a time, I placed dots of each nail polish, making sure that the dots over lapped the other colour block side. How about I just show you the result.



I was happy that quite a simple method produced such a fun pattern, very effective, I think.

What nail polish are you currently wearing?

    1. Thanks so much, Beth. I am not overly coordinated, so only attempt fairly basic nail art and only show the nails that I painted with my dominant hand, lol
