Diamond (Nail Art) is a Girls Best Friend!!

Hi puddin pies, I have a little quicky for you today before I head upstairs to film my next video.  Wait, does that make me sound like a porn star? I swear it's just nails and makeup....I mean I do sometimes film with no pants on but that's only due to the scorching conditions I must endure due to a noisy air conditioner.

Anywhoo, I sat down to do my nails last night and it was already like midnight so I needed something quick and easy yet still cute.  So I pulled out 2 old favorites and got down to bid-ness.

For some reason these 2 colors were so hard to capture without the dreaded glare!  I used Essie Navigate Her and Essie Master Plan.  These 2 are total throwbacks for me.  Master Plan was one of the first Essie's I ever purchased and definitely a gateway drug to other Essie's!

This design may look a bit complex but I swear it is soooo easy! I started with a white base and topped it with Seche Vite.  Next I put striping tape diagonal on my nail going in one direction (Harry Styles not included) and then a few more going in the other direction.  Fill in the "diamonds", remove the tape and you're off to mama smackin town!  I topcoated everything with Seche Vite, but does that surprise anyone?  I don't think I've used any other topcoat in at least a year.

And as you can see, when I took the picture I hadn't done my thumb yet.  I am always at a loss as to what to do with that ever so sassy 5th digit.  I almost did the diamond design on it but I ended up just going with Master Plan...(visions of my bed were already dancing in my head by this time).  I do admit, sometimes I don't even do my thumb if I am just doing nail art for you guys but last night I actually let her join in on the fun!

I'm going to film a tutorial for this look very soon....let me know if there are any other designs you guys would like to see.

Gotta run....I think I hear them calling me on set! (oh wait, that's just the voices in my tiny little head)

Happy Polishing you crazy kids!
