As I have mentioned before, I was a nail biter for 20+ years. I am relieved to have that addiction over with. Of course, when you have never really had to deal with having nails I felt like I was missing some key information on how to do at-home manicures. I started out with just solid colors to get use to painting my nails. I am a perfectionist so this was an obstacle for me at first. Now I am testing out some of the new nail art trends with my healthy nails and more confidence in the process.
- Sally Hansen Salon Manicure in Sheer Bliss
- Sally Hansen INSTA-DRI in Brisk Blue
- Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in Coral
- Sally Hansen UV Top Coat
- optionally: I keep Sally Hansen No More Mistakes handy for quick touchups!
Apply coat of Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Sheer Bliss. You may want to add an extra coat depending on the amount of coverage you want.
Normally I would use nail art tape, but I was all out. I couldn’t find any at several locations so I decided scotch tape would do the job. Tape off to begin your design. I am going with a diagonal color blocking look. Now paint a coat of Sally Hansen INST-DRY in Brisk blue.
I did one coral stripe to separate sheer bliss from brisk blue then did polka dots on sheer bliss.
Nails are a fun way to be youthful in a tasteful way! What’s your favorite way to get creative on your nails?
