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!
