piCture pOlish Blogfest 2013!

Hey Hussies!

Its that time of year gain, the exciting Blogfest by piCture pOlish!

This years is a little different from last years, the bloggers were presented with three shades and asked to do nail art and a tutorial to go with it...

 Nail Art + Hussy = Freaked Out!

I was given Fairy Floss, Nude and Paradise for my nail art concoction and at first I thought what the heck am I going to do with these!? 

If you read the blog regularly you'll know I don't do anything remotely arty! So I've taken the easy way out and done a simple little gradient and dotticure, I hope you like it :-)

How Too

To achieve this simple look follow this step by step guide...
  1. Paint all nails with two coats of piCture pOlish Nude
  2. Wait for them to become touch dry
  3. Once they are touch dry paint a small amount of piCture pOlish Fairy Floss onto a sponge (any sponge will do, I cut up a dish washing sponge!)
  4. Dab the painted sponge on some paper to remove excess paint
  5. Lightly dab the painted sponge 3/4 of the way down the nail towards the tip. Repeat steps 3-5 each time starting further down the nail until you have the desired gradient.
  6.  Once your nails are dry pour a small amount of piCture pOlish Paradise onto a paper plate.
  7.  Then take a cocktail stick (or a dotting tool, I don't own a dotting tool so I used a cocktail stick!) and dip it lightly into the pool of Paradise.
  8. Apply dots to your nails in any style you wish. I have varied the size of dots by adding more or less paint to my cocktail stick.
  9. Finish and seal with a coat of fast drying top coat.

I hope you enjoyed my post and my make-do tools for nail art ;-)
