It seems that I may have my priorities mixed up tonight because instead of working on finishing up my chair I decided that painting my nails was more important. I purchased two nail art pens in black and white by Sally Hansen from Target today for $7 each. And used O.P.I in black/onyx for the solid black on three nails. Always use a clear base coat on all nails so that the colors won’t stain and follow up with a top coat after you’re done with your designs for protection.
I’ve never painted any designs on my nails so I don’t really have a concrete tutorial. I just played around with the pen until I ended up with a design I liked. Of course I wanted to incorporate stripes.
Breeze was rather impressed by my nail art or maybe he was just upset that I turned on the light and interrupted his sleep, either way I had his attention.
I’ve seen a lot of lovely nail designs that could serve as inspiration for interiors. Like this combination of stripes and floral could be pulled of wonderfully.
A pastel palette not your thing? What about this bold palette of yellow, black and teal.
Everyone loves houndstooth right? What about pink houndstooth?
I think I’ll look at nail art for inspiration more in the future. Be sure to enter the cutting edge stencil giveaway going on now.
