DIY Beauty: Perfect Party Nails

Posted on September 02 2014

Your nails may just be one of the first things people notice about you. If you're anything like me
and you talk with your hands a lot, then chances are people will be noticing your nails more than
you think. So you're really never fully dressed without pretty nails! With summer winding down
there are so many last minute BBQ's and back to school parties that we are all looking forward to
attending, but what will your nails say about you? Follow these steps to get your perfect party nails!


What you need:

-clear base coat
-clear top coat (I used quick dry top coat))
-any shade of nail polish (I used Bikini So Teenie by Essie)
-nail polish a few shades darker than the first color (I used Under The Twilight by Essie)
-scotch tape
-glitter polish (optional)


What you do:

Step 1: Make sure your nails are clean and dry! This will ensure that your nails remain
             perfect with out any chips for days and days.

Step 2: Apply one coat of your clear base coat.

Step 3: Apply 2 coats of your lighter color polish.  Let this color dry completely before
             moving onto the next step (usually about 30 mins)

Step 4: Apply 2 small peices of scotch tape to your nails.  You want them to be angled
             from the center of the top part of your nail out to the outer corners of your nail,
             making a triangle shape. 

Step 5: Apply one coat of the darker polish shade.  Applying too much of this shade
             could cause the polish on your nail to be too thick therefore making it chip sooner,
             and no body has time for that!  Once you finish applying your triangle shade you
             may remove the tape.

Step 6: Apply a thin line of glitter to the edges of your triangle to give your nails a little bling! 

Step 7: Finish you nails off with a clear quick dry top coat.



You can repeat steps 4 through 6 on one or two nails as just accent nails, or if you're feeling a little funky
you can repeat those steps on all of your nails. Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak,
so let your nails be part of that style and speak for you!
