I have a nail polish fetish, as we all learned when I made shelving units, exclusively for nail polish.
Hold up. I know you are wondering where I have been for the past few days.
I had the flu. It sucked. It's over. I'm back.
Stop distracting meeeeeeeeee.
I did some nail art and got lots o' happy compliments so I decided to give you a happy lil' tutorial.
See happy nails (and sad, sad cuticles):
1. Painter's tape from Michael's.
2. Pinking shears from Purl Soho.
Start with clean, dry nails.
Paint two coats of your base color. Let dry ALL the way. None of that "it's almost dry" dry business.
Learn from my mistakes.
Use the pinking shears to cut very thin zigzag strips of painter's tape.
Tape the zigzag strips on your nails in your desired pattern.
Paint over the tape with your second polish color.
Hey, New Yorkers! Enjoy the summer-like weather hitting us this weekend!
Boom boom boom.
