But I got the idea for today's nail art from it, so I guess it's not all that bad :)
I can't tell you how much I loved wearing these around this Saturday's sunny, roasting beach weather.
They were happy, funky and definitely eye-catching.
Also, did I mention, easy and fast to make? :)
I started with two coats of Kiko Cupcake 655 Menta.
A lot of people aren't really into texture polishes but they're my go-to-polish when I need to get my nails done quick and without the hassle of clean up.
The gritty texture makes your brush strokes really controlled and you'll hardly mess up your cuticles.
Plus the drying time is fast and there's no need for a top-coat.
Can a girl ask for more, really?
The tattoo design was done in white acrylic paint and I confess I was surprised at how smoothly I was able to make these lines. I thought they'd get all bumpy and all, but the gritty finish actually helps you control your straight lines - awesome, right? :)
To make these stand out a bit more, I added some caviar gold beads and that's the touch that really makes this mani look fabulous :)
What do you think? Let me know all about how you love (or not) texture polishes, temporary tattos and freehand designs :D
