First of all, let me apologize for the sloppy work that you’re about to see. It’s 11PM and I just got home, and I should be sleeping…but anyway. I did this in a huge rush and it shows, but I think the idea is kind of neat. I wanted to make lacey nails for Valentine’s Day.
First, I started off with OPI Affair in Red Square. This is a nice medium red shimmer. Hot hot hot.
From there, I decided to paint a scalloped white edge on the tip, like a piece of lace, and then use my dotting tool to dot red holes on it, so the tip looked lacy. Unfortunately, my dotting tool was MIA, my guy was asleep, and I just grabbed a toothpick to make the dots. I smudged too!
From there, I used my red Sally Hansen nail art pen to draw some swirls to capture that old-world patterned wallpaper look. The nail art pen and nail color are similar, but it makes a cool and subtle pattern. Or at least it would have, if I hadn’t messed it up. I was really tired, but I wanted to post this in the hope that someone could do better with the basic idea.
