Nail Art Tutorial and Sneak Peek










Hello lovelies! Long time no see! I've been super busy lately and am in the process of editing my latest outfit photos so I thought I'd update with a sneak peek and a nail art tutorial!
Here are the steps to get these paint-splatter, circle pattern nails:

Materials
a base nail polish 
(simple color like white)
design nail polishes 
(I chose gold to keep it simple but you can use multiple colors)
a straw
paper

1. paint your nails with the base color and let dry
2. dab some design nail polish onto a paper and dip your straw into it
3. place the straw end onto your nails and press firmly
4. repeat step three to get desired effect

It's that simple! Let me know if you try this and tell me how it goes. See you soon!

Avec amour,
Lily

  5. I love this nail look as well! There is one benefit of chipping your nail polish: You get to paint them and do cool designs more frequently ;) haha Thanks for checking out my blog!
