Last night, I was doing a manicure I had in mind for days, and I took some pictures of the process. It’s not something special but I liked the result, so totally out of the blue, I decided to make a post about it. Most pics were taken with my small camera, indoors, at night, so the resolution isn’t perfect. But I hope you like it anyway!
How to do a baby blue manicure with silver details
What I used
Step 1: Cut, and fine your nails in your preferable shape and length.
Step 2: Paint your nails with the base coat. I definitely recommend Mavala’s 002 Protective Base coat, as it’s not glossy, and it prevents the nails from becoming yellow.
Step 3: Paint 1 coat of your preferable nail polish.
Step 4: Add a 2nd coat of nail polish
Step 5: After the 2nd coat has completely dried, use tape in different shapes to help you do the details.
Step 6: paint between the tapes with the silver nail polish, and let them dry completely. Then remove the tapes carefully.
I only used tapes for my thumb and index finger, and used the glitter nail polish on the tips of my ring fingers (something I had done before here). For my little/pinky finger I used a toothpick to create dots. It’s really easy!
And finally Step 7: Add a protective top coat. I always use Mavala’s Mavadry, which dries my nail polish in seconds, and keeps my manicure protected for days. But Mavala’s ColorFix is also great, or you can use any other top coat of your preference.
Tomorrow I’ll probably go to the sea with my cousin, and maybe go swimming (the first swim for this summer). But I have prepared a post for you, with one my latest purchases, so don’t forget to check the blog again.
I hope you all have a happy weekend!
