Here's a quick nail design that is perfectly suitable for noobs like me. I will be honest with you, I'm not the biggest nail artist.
This is as far as I can go with my techniques and this is as far as I want to take it. There will be no flowers, bees or hearts on my nails. I've tried the ombre nail manicure and failed big time. The only thing that was ombre was my table and not my nails. I wanted to do the water marble but that seems way out of my league. Did any of you try it?
To achieve this french manicure 'a la Simone', you will need 4 nail polishes and a nail polish corrector pen, because it will get messy. You can decide yourself which base and top coat you use and of course the two colors of the main nail polishes.
- I started off with my favorite base coat from P2 Base and Care Coat. Then I applied two coats from the new Manhattan nail polish 'Styleproofed' 01S Acai Power Berry and let it dry for a while.
- After that I took my 'Good as Gold' nail polish from Essie and slightly moved the brush on the outer ends of my nails, starting from the outside and rolling my finger from my left hand (where I applied the nail polish) to the left side slowly and my right hand to the right. For this manicure, Good as Gold was not the best choice because the wand is huge (which is great for when you do a normal nail look). I got a lot of gold on my finger tips and needed a while to clean it all.
- Then at the end you add a clear top coat of your choice. Mine is from Seche Vite.
You can very this look in so many different ways and make them look nicer by using the right tools. I have very little nail art tools and tried it my messy way. I'm quite happy with the outcome.
Hope you like it too! Please share with me your favorite color combos.
