..Getting Nail-Artsy

image (3)

Using only some toothpicks and your favorite polishes you can create this little floral design on your nails.  Just dab your colors onto a piece of magazine paper you don't want anymore, dip the toothpicks in the paint, and dot your design onto your nail.  Easy peasy.  make sure you wait for your design to dry completely before putting topcoat on as it will make it run and distort your pretty pattern.  If this seams too hard, start of with polka dots and see how it turns out.  In addition to the three Essie colors mentioned above I used Sally Hansen's "Mellow Yellow" for the centers of the flowers.

  1. I always admire those cute accent nails but have never tried it on myself. Because...well...I'm terrible at getting them painted regular style as it is! But maybe I can start with polka dots and work my way up :)

  2. Wow, that looks so cute! I can't believe it's that easy. I'll have to try nail art out sometime. I think I'll start small though before working my way up to a flower.
