I will start with an update on my nails, they are growing slowly but surely 🙂 not complete stubs anymore, on another note, I cracked my big toe nail right up the side so the one of those is all short now… ::sigh::
For the Fashion Inspiration, I chose Stella McCartney. I love how she uses a lot of black sheer with black polka dots in her “little black dress” looks. I found a couple of her looks to show you my inspiration, that can be seen by clicking here.
Here is my look :
For this look, I painted the “Julep – Emma” in the morning before work so that it had plenty of time to dry as I planned on using the taping technique. Then last night, I did one nail at a time and topped it off with “Seche Vite’ ” so it dried right away and I could move on without having to worry about smudging it. I put a piece of tape, (actually I use address labels and cut them, same thing), on my nail. I did my pinky and Ring Finger points facing each other and my pointer and middle, facing each other. Once I was done with the tape and black, I used my dotting tools to make different size dots and topped it off with the top coat. All of the nails used the same technique. For my thumb, the only difference was, since I did two angles, I put a little “Seche Vite’ ” over the first diagonal and came back to it, so that I could put tape on it without having to worry about it ripping the black off, and did the other angle, and dots same way.
The Colors I used were, the “nail-aid – Peeling Nail Base Coat”, “Julep – Emma”, and “Blackest Black by Sinful Colors” The top Coat I used was “Seche Vite'”
