Since this is my first time,I wanted to be all cool and not keep it simple, so I decided to do something I had seen,wanted to but had not tried yet. In blue of course :)
Here's what I did
Yes, I normally don't use Photoshop for any of my nail posts,unless the true color doesn't come out in photos and I need to twitch it to make it look like the real deal. But in this case, it wasn't a post about the color, it was about the pattern, and since the lighting was awful for some reason, I went all Vogue on the picture. Looks pretty neat though, if I may say so.
If you're wondering HOW I did it, have no fear, tutorial is here!
The Quick and Easy HOW-TO
Despite what it looks like, it's easier to do than you might think.
You only need one thing:
A plastic wrapper. Like a sandwich wrapper. I personally used the plastic bag the bread was in. You need one that is quite stiff, so that it holds its shape.
What do to:
Step 1. Paint your nails in the color of your choice. Monday Blues meant blue for me, but next time I am definitely doing black.
Step 2. Crinkle the plastic wrapper. Hold it in your hand and try to make a petal-like shape,like so
Step 3. Apply some gold polish on the crinkled wrapper with the brush. Try not to put too much polish on it. If you feel you have,then just dab the excess off on a paper or a paper towel.
Should look like this, just more crinkled, I let it loose when I was taking the photo.
Step 4. The Awesome Step!
Dab the gold polish filled foil on your nails. If you see there's not enough polish on your foil anymore, brush some more on.
And there you have it!
