Nail Tutorial (Polka Dots Nails/French Tip)

Howdy!

How are you doing today? Does anyone notice a difference around here? No? Yes?
Anyhoo, I made some changes to my blog and I must say, I am proud of myself. I had been thinking of changing my layout and things, but finally getting to do it makes me happy. What do you think about it?

Also, I am running my first GIVEAWAY! I have some interesting prizes so be sure to enter for a chance to win.

In the spirit of "firsts", I'm pleased to announce that, today, I have my very first official tutorial for you. :-D
This tutorial happened because of a contest on facebook that Kleancolor is having.
I made a youtube Video of the tutorial and here it is.


Here's a Picture and writing tutorial as well.


1. Polishes. Left to Right: Kleancolor - Silver Star, Neon Pink, Teal Envy.
2. what I used to make polka dots (explained in #7)
3: Cut small pieces of tape and place at the tip of your finger to create french tip on fingers you want to be french tipped.
4. Apply polish to areas that are not covered by the tape.
5. When nail polish is dry, gently remove tape.
6. Clean up nail edges with a concealer brush dipped in nail polish remover. Beauty Tip: Using brushes for nail clean up is more precise and better than using q-tips. The brush allows for accurate cleanup and the brush can be maneuvered better around your cuticles.
Then allow polish to dry.
7: Let's go back to picture #2.
To create Polka Dots: Place a small amount of nail polish on a piece of paper. Dip a dotting tool, tooth pick, or one of the ends of a bobby pin into the nail polish.
Place dots on nails randomly or in a pattern to create the polka dots.

8. When Polka dots are dry, apply a Kleancolor top coat, or use a glitter topcooat like I did. I made sure none of the stars in "silver star" was transferred on my nails.
I also didn't use too much of the glitter so as not to distract from the beauty of my polka dots.

And here's the finished look. 

Hope you like my tips and design. :-)

Remember to enter my giveaway for your chance to win some lovely polishes.
Thanks for reading and watching. Till later. God Bless.

  2. Thanks Marissa.

    Sisi Yemmie, Yes oo... I'm glad I've inspired you. There are so many things we can do for ourselves that we overlook.
    When you do your nails, if you have a picture, I'd like to see.. :-)

    Since you are now going to be doing your own nails, How cool does the possibility of owning 6 new nail polishes sound? Be sure to enter my giveaway if you reside in the U.S.

    If you don't reside in the U.S, I'm sorry, but keep checking my blog for polish freebies/giveaways by other bloggers.
