To again take a different approach to the ordinary white french tip, i used flakie polishes to amp up the shine affect and then using white acyclic paint i carefully painted on designs that heavily resemble henna patterns.
For the first week of senior year i decided that it would be fun if i painted ten different types/styles of eyes on my nails. I have no idea how i got this idea, but i thought it would be fun to incorporate so many different styles of one subject matter, plus i got to actually glue three googly eyes on one of my nails, the little pupils bounced around, it was so gratifying!
I took this picture (above) at the end of the week to show how well the design stayed on....except for my pink nail, it sadly came off during a basketball practice.
I started with a deep crimson color polish and then used a matte topcoat over the entire nail. To shake things up i used my seche vita topcoat and put it in the corner of each nail. This lead to the contrast in finishes of each nail, something new for me.
Using a yellow creme base i added orange and red acrylic paint and slowly and carefully used a rough paintbrush to create the sunburst look. These create a very bright and happy mood, which is what i needed because school starts soon.
I only had this manicure on for a couple of hours after realizing that i didn't really like it. In the sun you could see the grains of glitter that the top coat was unable to smooth over. But nonetheless i used a full glitter navy base and on top i added one gold glitter stripe in the middle, a royal blue one to the left, and a dark green to the right.
For this manicure i started with a navy creme base color and layered on a different glitter nail polish on each nail. Following that i included a triangle on each nail as well using white acrylic paint and a paintbrush.
