Blue Shimmer Nails #2


Hi everyone!

Just a quick post for today! I did these blue shimmer nails a few days ago when I didn't have a lot of time to create an intricate nail art design. I had already done this design before (you can see it here) so it was easy to create again :)

For this design I used:
Black on Black - Sinful Colors
DS Lapis - OPI




It's very simple to do:

First I painted my nails black with two coats.
Then I put some DS Lapis onto a piece of paper and dabbed in it with some plastic wrap I had rolled into a little ball. I then just dabbed this onto my nails and added a shiny topcoat (because DS Lapis dries to a matte finish with sparkles in it).

I added some studs on my ring finger and that's it!



I hope you like it! And I hope you don't mind my recreating a design I did earlier - when I don't have a lot of time I just do something very simple or something I have done before and really liked. And I did realllllly love this design!

(plus, this post made me realize that I am getting better and better at taking pictures and editing them, right? I can really see the difference with the pictures from a few months ago)

Thanks for reading!

It looks beautiful, I love how it slightly looks like it's lace design (at first I thought it is a lace stamp :P )
