Jade Curtains

Gooood morning! Last night I was craving something dramatic and bold, but still simple and clean. I remembered pinning an image from this post by Nail Stories to my nail board and thought it would do the trick. This style is SO simple and a real stunner!

For my base I used piCture pOlish Jade, which is a really bright and vibrant green with a hidden silver shimmer. The shimmer particles are TINY but really beautiful and they add a great effect to this polish. As with Wisteria, I didn't have any issues with application.

Then, I took China Glaze Liquid Leather, the shiniest black that I own, and painted on these little curtains. I just applied them on with the brush, freehand. Once they had been drying for a bit, I applied topcoat to make them ultra shiny.

Nail Stories described these as curtain nails, and I have to agree! I followed through to HER source and I guess they originally started as heart nails, though in the inspiration ad the model had pointy nails that added to the heart effect. We'll just stick with curtains. :)

(Though, I have been musing about calling them "butt nails" or "cleavage nails." I'll let you decide what you want to call them.)
