Today was not a great day, and I didn't get half as much done as I would have liked. I barely got my DIY done today. I attempted to paint my nails. I was inspired by this lovely nail job by Cupcakes and Cashmere.
I started out with a base coat of Sally Hansen's Mint color on my thumb, index, and pinky nails. A base coat of Sally Hansen's Green With Envy color on my middle finger.
Then I painted a clear coat on my ring finger, and quickly dusted it with Martha Stewart's Mint glitter over a paper plate. I knocked off any excess, and painted a few clear coats over the top.
Then using a white nail pen I drew lines on my pinky finger.
Once, the paint dried on my thumb and middle fingers I put a piece of blue painter's tape half way over them. Then, with the opposite color of what I had painted each nail I painted one side of my thumb and middle fingers.
Now this is where I messed up, the painted hadn't fully dried on the base coats or on the new layer of paint when I tired to peel it up, and up with the tape went my new paint job. So I used some nail polish remover on those nails, and skipped the tape this time around.
Here's hoping you have better luck with this! Happy DIYing!
