*Disclaimer: I took the pics with my phone so they're not too brilliant. I could spend time Photoshopping them up, but I don't really feel like it right now. :) On to the post!
Do you guys like Dita Von Teese? I just LOVE her, I think she is so fabulous. I've noticed that she does almost like a reverse French manicure on her nails, so this is kind of an indirect shoutout. I actually was flipping through the latest Marie Claire, and noticed that there were a couple of ads with fun nail designs similar to this. This is what actually inspired this look, but I still think Dita deserves the credit :) Instead of doing the rounded edge on top, I tried to do a sort of pointy one to give it a funky feel. The pointiness didn't totally work - I think I didn't wait long enough for my nails to dry. Sigh. I'm sure there are other methods of doing this and would love to hear what they are if anyone knows of them!
What you need:
*base and top coat
*polish color of choice
I started off by putting a base coat and letting it dry before anything else. Unfortunately, it wasn't COMPLETELY dry by the time I started with everything else, so I had a couple of mishaps. Whoops.
Take the scotch tape to cut out the shapes that you want on your nails. Once you've done this, place the scotch tape on your dry (hehe) nails where you would like the design to be. Make sure it sticks everywhere that it needs to, so there is no bleeding around the edges.
Take your color of choice and paint over your nail and the scotch tape as you would normally. (1-2 coats, depending on the polish). Leave this to dry (try to make sure these guys are pretty close to dry before the next step - you don't want do mess up the crispness of the edge!).
Once you've dried, peel off your scotch tape - woo hoo! Nail fun! You can paint over your piggies with some top coat and you will be good to go!
