I haven’t posted some fun nail art since Easter! Which is a tad crazy, but let me fill you in on WHY before I get into how to do this wonderful summertime nail art.
For the past little bit, my nails have been awful. Peeling, brittle, and just not growing. Even if they did grow, they broke very easily. It was quite awful, especially considering how much I love nail art. The good news is that my nails are back on track! I essentially just stopped painting them 3 times a week, and I’ve been using the Sally Hansen Diamond Strength as a base. That stuff is seriously amazing. Makes my nails SO strong. I’m very excited that my nails are back to normal, and that I can now start posting more nail art (just less frequently so I don’t destroy them again haha).
Back to this manicure…
If you read my blog at all, you know that my favourite Konad plate is m57. Between the leopard print and the lace, this plate gets used probably 80% of the time I do my nails. Of course, this means that my nail art gets a little boring so I try to find new ways to use this plate. I decided to only do two accent nails with the leopard print, and make it a little summer-y.
The pink polish is Butter London Primrose Hill Picnic, and the mint is Essie Mint Candy Apple. Once completely dry I applied the leopard print stamp using Konad black stamping polish. Then I filled in a few of the spots with a white and pink striper.
It’s that easy folks.
