xSparkage... I shouldn't say inspiration because it's basically the same exact thing buuuuut.... oh well! She used Essie's Turquoise and Caicos and I'm guessing a white nail pen. I, on the other hand, used Sally Hanson's Insta-Dry Fast Nail Color in Mint Sprint and a light blue Avon color in Vintage Blue (similar to the Sephora by OPI color Havana Nights). My version is a touch cheaper.
Anyway, I only wanted to share because of how adorable this is and I have a little trick! Sometimes, using toothpicks to make precise lines and designs works out fabulously, but sometimes, you just end up in a frustrated mess. Well I think I have found a solution to this problem! Instead of going out and buying a new fine-ish tipped nail pen in every color you need, just get one! I recommend getting a basic color, probably white, because black may be a little dark for this. For whatever reason, I have a gold nail pen, so that's what I used.
This is super easy:
- just take your nail pen
- wipe off the excess around the brush with a tissue/paper towel
- pick whatever nail polish color you want
- put a little on a paper plate, some sort of palette, maybe? or i just used an upside down bathroom dixie cup
- dip the pen into the color
- start goin' to town!
Thanks for reading and hope everybody is having a great week back at school!
