This past Saturday, I was honoured to be a part of a wonderful friend’s wedding. So today I thought I’d post my wedding-themed nail art.
To create the details, I used a silicone tip brush. Rather than using one of the nail colours I had, I ended up mixing my own. I wanted a very translucent pink to go over the white tips, and as I didn’t have one, I mixed a small amount of my solid pink colour with a nearly-clear colour. I also used silver coloured micro-beads.
After dealing with my (awful) cuticles and applying a base coat, I painted the tips of my nails white.
I then applied the translucent pink colour over the white tips so that they wouldn’t look so stark.
The hearts were added with the silicone brush, and the sparkles were adhered to my nails using top coat.
I added top coat to the base of my nails (the “half moon” part), and poured the micro-beads over my nails. I then used an orange stick to remove any beads that had stuck on in the wrong places.
Just for fun, rather than adding a heart to my thumb as well, I painted “love”.
I always finish my nails with a top coat, but for these I applied two coats to ensure the micro-beads would stay in place.
I love how these turned out! ♥
