happy monday to you :D
i'm going to keep this short and sweet... i've got things to do, places to go, people to see! i did this manicure a while ago (when i was recovering from cellulitis), and i didn't have a whole bunch of nail polish on hand.
i used some Essie nail color, some crackle polish, and scotch tape!
yes, you read that right... scotch tape.
back when i had tons of time on my hands, i was checking out a lot of nail blogs (and obviously not able to keep my nails long either) as well as pinterest, and saw this cool way of doing your nails. so i tried it.
- get strip of tape.
- paint tape.
- let dry.
- cut to desired length/ shape/ etc (i cut some thick strips and skinny ones for my thumb, and a heart [plus a crackle layer] for my middle finger)
- apply nail polish to fingers as normal
- quickly add tape as desired.
- top coat.
it's really not as hard as my list makes it look.
i think the manicure is 'okay.' (gosh, i really didn't know how to be careful around my cuticles back then, did i?) let me tell you, the hearts were the hardest things to cut EVER! but i did borrow this cute heart jewel, which you don't even realize unless you're close.
so there you go. i was trying for short, but meh!
thanks for stopping by, xoxo
