Lastly I used my new best friend, as mentioned in my first post, the Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen. I used it to make the white line that separates the green and pink. My hand wasn't perfectly steady so my line is a bit wiggly. But overall I did complete the design as instructions said.
I started simply enough, with a base coat. (Sally Hansen Extended Wear Base Coat). You can see my review of this on another post coming soon.
Next I used my closest watermelon pink, which was Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear, in Fuchsia Power.
*Side note - I always thought fuchsia had more purple to it, this was plain pink...
Next I brushed a strip of green across the tip. It was relatively straight, but the white is supposed to cover it so it didn't matter that much. The green I used was one in the back of my cupboard. It says Splash on the top, but the bottom says FACES. So I think it is a brand from FACES cosmetics.After the green I painted little black dots, using Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear, in Black Out, and a toothpick. I really do like most of Sally Hansen colours, they show up well and and are only about 2$ Canadian. The pale ones need a lot of coats, but the solid colours like these two are great.
I used a top coat by Revlon, which I really like. Look for a post all about that coming soon too.
Anyways, this design was simple to understand, a bit harder t do than I expected, but that might just be because it was my first try. I will be trying it again in following weeks to see if I can get any better. For those of you who are new at nail art, I would suggest this design. I have gotten lots of compliments on it, and I do agree it is really cute. As many people have mentioned, it is a bit tacky to do it on all fingers, I chose ring fingers only. That could be an age thing though.
Anyways good luck trying it yourself!
Any ideas you want me to try my hand at ( haha get the joke...? ) just let me know!
