Hello everyone! So sorry I haven't made a post in a while. I started feeling like I was developing some sort of cold or flu type thing on Friday and it has really only gone downhill since then! I went to the doctor today and got some medicine, so hopefully I will be feeling better soon.
Today's nails are based off a design that I first saw on my friend Laurie. She then told me that she based her nails on a design from Nail Nerd!
I chose China Glaze Red Pearl and Sally Hansen Whirlwind White to give this mani a bit of a holiday flair. It doesn't scream "HOLIDAY!!!!!!" like some weird Christmas banshee, but I think it's still subtly getting the message across!
To achieve this look you start with a base of white. Then, using a torn off bit of a triangle makeup sponge, build up a gradient by sponging on the red color. If you're not familiar with the sponging method, check out Rebecca's tutorial.
Then, using a dotting tool, add back in white dots over the gradient. Finish with topcoat!
It's a really cool look, isn't it? I was very happy to come across it. It looks like I put a stencil over my nails and then spray painted it on or something.
And here it is from a distance!
I hope you guys like this design, and I also hope to do some holiday nail art soon for you guys! Hope you are having a lovely December so far! :)
