Face Shop and Etude House: First attempt at nail art.

Hey girls! I decided to go a little out of my comfort zone and try some nail art with my own imagination (which is often inspired by others). So I am not saying that I came out with this design entirely on my own because it probably is a mix and match of tutorials I have watched online.

Ok, because I recently just started swatching, I do not have alot of pastel colour polishes. Hence, I had to make do with the pink and purple which I got from Face Shop and I managed to snatch up a white colour polish from Etude House. There is no name for this design because I was watching a korean drama while simply painting diagonal and vertical lines across my nails.

I started off with a white base on all my nails and I used the pastel pink first. Diagonal, vertical, left, right, I was simply just mixing any kind of nail art I chanced upon on any social media platform. I let the pink dry almost completely before painting the pastel purple over and that is the outcome. I use OPI base coat and Sally Hansen’s Mega Shine top coat. I personally would prefer a better brand to get for the pastel colours because Face Shop and Etude House are better in their facial products, probably that is why their polish are a little streaky and I took awhile to even out the layers on my nails.

It’s my very very first attempt at nail art, not nail stickers and hence it’s a little messy. I had trouble steadying my hands to keep the diagonal colours straight. But, practice makes perfect so I really hope the next time I have another nail art post, it will produce a better result and neater nails. 😛
