Nail Diaries: It’s called procrastination.

(Because I have an anatomy exam tomorrow that I’m in denial about.)

Alright, so my left hand and right hand don’t match.  But that’s because I did my left hand,  realized I didn’t like the silver, and then was too lazy to change it.

The polishes:

A random white polish, Essie’s 794 She’s Picture Perfect, Nicole OPI’s A-Nise Treat, and China Glaze’s Icicle.

Step 1.  Paint one solid coat of white polish.  Knowing white, it’ll probably take about 3 coats.  Let it dry thoroughly.

Step 2.  Apply tape.  I used striping tape, because I think it makes for cleaner lines, but Scotch tape would work as well.  The goal is to have a triangle of white left in the middle, with the point in the top corner of your nail.

Step 3.  Paint on Essie’s She’s Picture Perfect above and below the tape.  As usual, remove the tape immediately to get a clean line.  Let it dry completely.

Step 4. Apply two more pieces of tape to make a smaller triangle inside the white triangle.

Step 5.  Paint inside the two pieces of tape with the second contrasting colour (either silver or black).

Step 6.  Clean up the edges and apply top coat.  All done!

Until next time!
