My nails are desperately short, and really weak, so it can be difficult to play around with nail art sometimes. However, now and again, I'll still give it a go, and I wanted to share with you guys my attempt :) These kind of remind me of something you would find on Jem's nails, no? I'm feeling kind of 80's today!
These were a beginners attempt, obviously, but if you'd like to try and recreate the look, here's what I did:
I painted my whole nail using Essie Mod Square (the cutest color! I love Essie polishes) and I let them dry. Then, I cut small rectangles of Scotch tape and applied them diagonally to each of my nails. I actually start by "un-stickying" (oh wow, not even CLOSE to a word) the tape with my fingers, just to weaken the adhesive a bit so it doesn't take my polish off with it. After applying the tape diagonally to the nails, I painted the top half of my nails with LA Girl Flare polish in Dark Purple. I let the polish dry, and then I carefully removed the tape. I set everything with a clear top coat, and there you go! Jem inspired nails of the day. Whaddya think?
