New Years Eve Nails


I finally picked out what I'm going to wear tonight for NYE. My friend is having a little get together/party at her house, and I really can't wait! It's a very casual night, so I won't be wearing anything crazy shiny (although I kinda wanted to). I will be wearing a dress though, it's a very simple striped summer dress I got in LA which I'll be "winterifying". Photos will be up next year (har har, I just had to go there.. )

My favorite part of my outfit though is my nails. I came up with this design after drooling over nail designs on pinterest. It's very simple, different but still very soft and not too crazy.

What you need:


Nude nail polish, Nail Art pen (or a fine tipped color varnish), and clear top coat.

Step 1:
Apply  one coat of a nude polish as a base, I find the base from a french tip kit the perfect color. I used "Oxygene" by China Glaze.

Step 2:
Start the design with the black nail art pen or if you have a fine tipped varnish (think like the ones that are commonly used for french tip). The concept is random rows of lines going across in different directions on your nails. I  chose to go with different but same design on each nail, it spices things up.


Step 3:
Apply one coat of the nude polish again. Make sure it's not too thick, you don't want the color of the lines to disappear, we just want the black to stay black but with a hint of greyish nude.

Step 4:
Make sure the nude polish is dry and apply a top coat. Voila


I didn't notice that messed up my thumb right before taking the picture, fixed it though...
