Fun, Pretty, and Unique nails!!

Today I decided to try something a little different with my nails. I usualy stick with my standard plain one colour nail. Buttttt, today I decided to go with a bright blue nail with light purple polka dots, then on top of that, I added purple jewels just to add a bit of fun. As you can tell, I was extremely bored.

So first I started off with Sally Hansens 'hard as nails' in blue me away. This was my base colour.

Then I used Sally Hansens 'Hard as Nails' in Lacey Lilac to make polka dots. For the polka dots I used a dotting tool that I got in a nail art kit off of ebay. The dotting tool is the picture on your left above.

Then I used the nail glue from the nail art set and used a toothpick to gently add dots of glue onto some of the polka dots. This glue dries really quickly so I was doing about 2 dots at a time. Then I used the purple jewels in the centre picture above. I gently tapped a few of the jewels onto the table I was working at and used my finger to gently pick up each jewel one at a time. Then i carefully placed the jewel onto the dot of glue on my nail.

Then I used Sally Hansens 'Insta-Dri' top coat to help hold everything in place. On the above right is a picture of the final look.

I hope you all enjoyed this blog!!! :)
