Nail Look Of The Day #1! Black & Glitter

Nails! I will be creating some posts with nail looks I create! I have since been inspired by my fellow bloggers, and their gorgeous nails! So, here is my first look is showcasing black and glitter. I am all about the flash! This look wasn’t hard to complete at all. The only challenges were found in painting my right hand with my left, this is one of my biggest life issues ha ha FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS…But I will just show you what my left hand looks like, because it doesn’t look like my right hand at all! lol

I used, of course, a base coat, a fast drive top coat, black skinny brush nail polish, and some glitter!

I used Spoiled Nail Polish In Jewelry Heist, for the glittery tips! I used Nail Club Black polish with a skinny brush. Then, my favorite top coat, Oh So Wet! This stuff is a fast drying top coat, that literally dries before your eyes and prevents chipping.

All I did to create this look was first apply my base coat, any one will do! Then I turned my hand sideways, to make this step easier, and dragged the tip of the brush along the edge of my nail, applying a thick band of glitter at the end of my finger nails. Then I repeated this step three times, ensuring an opaque glitter effect. Then after that was all dried, I took the black skinny nail polish brush and flicked diagonal lines from the side of my nails to the center, starting thick then tapering off. This took me a couple nails before I got the hang of it so don’t worry if the lines waver a bit, hay it beats salon prices! :p I put these lines above the glitter band on my nails, and gave the look a professional touch 🙂

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips

I was inspired by ohloveleslie’s blog  and decided to go out and buy some Sally Hansen nail stickers, in “hot wired” from CVS for $7.

The Kit comes with two packs of nail strips (with some extra in case of mistakes), a wooden poker, and a nail file.

Although it took me bit to adjust  to using these, once I figured them out I can’t get enough of them! These guys are great if you want amazing looking nails, that last up to two weeks. I Love having these on my nails when I am trying to grow them out because I am less tempted to pick at them because there are so pretty :p

I first off clean my nails completely, clip my cuticles, and file my nails. Then I go through the strips provided and find which ones best fit my nail shape. Then I’ll take the sticker, rip off the backing, and place it in the top middle of my nail. Then I will smooth the sides to each corner of my nail, and then down to the edge of my nail. Then you can use the nail file and file the excess sticker away. To ensure extra hold, I press down the whole sticker on each nail for a couple of seconds. Then, as an optional step, I apply a clear coat on top for extra shine and to prevent chipping.

I am super happy with the results, very neon and fun.
