Nails: New Year Blackout

HELLO and HAPPY NEW YEAR, SWEETIES!

Sooo, how're your first few days of 2013 going? I'm sure you're filled with fresh hopes, goals, wishes, joy, and a burst of color and sparkles for the entire year ahead. Yep, because that's exactly the same thing for me! ;) Well, speaking of color and sparkles, I'm absolutely thrilled to share with you my first nail art for the year...

NEW YEAR BLACKOUT!


I made this simple nail art two evenings before 2013 came in. It's been a while since I last did my nails because I've been practicing to play the guitar again, hence I couldn't keep long nails. I had to come up with a nail design for short nails, and here it is! I just thought it's the perfect thing for my nails to welcome the new year, don't you think? :) Here's how I did it:

STEP 1:
I painted my nails with three different sparkle colors, all from CARONIA (the purple glitter is Trance, the metallic blue is Sapphire, and the silver one is Silver Platinum).  For my index and middle fingers, I topped them off with the Caress Disco nail polish topper I used here.


STEP 2:
If I had some striping tape, I would use it, but I don't. So I used masking tape instead. I randomly striped and covered the areas from which I wanted the color to appear, and then...


STEP 3:
I topped my nails with Caronia Black Velvet. After making sure I've covered the entire nail, I carefully took off the masking tape stripes I made.


Aaaaand... TADAAAH!


It's still a bit of a mess, but I'm quite happy with it already. It's my first time to do a blackout, anyway. Oh, and I can just imagine how great those fingernails would look on and with my guitar. :>

Btw here's a photo of my favorite blacked-out nail. :>

Do you like it, sweeties? I hope you can try it out, too! Don't forget to share it with us if you do!


Love lots,

  1. Ooh, I love it! I can't wait to try it in my nails if I have the time. Imma have to run to National for some string tape though. God knows I can't cut a straight line, lol.
