For the first one, it was super duper easy.
I started with two coats of Rimmel Black Satin (except for on my accent or ring finger)
For my accent finger I used two coats of Wet N Wilds Teal of Fortune (which, by the way, stains super bad).
Once that had dried plenty, I cut small strips of tape and applied it onto the nail, and painted black on top. I remove the tape immediately and this was the result!
This was an easy, fun mani that isn't too overdone. (The picture was taken before I applied Seche Vite)
This second mani, I was a little dissapointed in. I was inspired by something I saw on pinterest, quite some time ago. I don't have a dotting tool, so I used the end of a makeup brush, but it gave me uneven dots, which I HATED. Also, I free handed the heart, which I also did not like the end result of. I think that had I had better tools, I would have LOVED this mani. I think that it is something I would try again someday.
What do you guys think?
