Hey everyone! I've been super busy with revision and essays because I have a load of deadlines/exams coming up and I'm stressing a bit so apologies for not posting tonnes. I promise this isn't a sign of things to come in 2014, I just want to get my exams out of the way and then I'll be back to posting more regularly. I have a couple of nail art posts for you, a couple of reviews, and a couple of tutorials so I'll spread them out over the next 3 weeks until the end of exams just so you're not missing out!
Anyway, today I have another tutorial tuesday for you. You might remember these nails from when I went to the Cosmo awards, and as they're clearly lucky because I won an award, I thought I'd do a tutorial for them. I actually created this tutorial for Nail It! so I wont be writing the steps down here because I think it's only fair that you head over there to see, (look HERE) but I will post the picture steps just so you have something to look at!
As with my original post, the base for these nails was 2 coats of Alessandro - Midnight Black*, and 3 coats of Alessandro - Glitter Queen*. I then applied a layer of China Glaze - Fairy Dust to the black. Once that was dry I used a thin brush (this one) and white acrylic paint for the swirls, and finally I added the black studs (which I unfortunately cannot remember the origin of but they're most likely from Born Pretty Store). Finished off with a coat of Seche Vite
Don't forget to check out the steps HERE.
I also wrote a post for Nail It! about photographing your nails with a few other bloggers which you can see here if you're interested.
