NAIL ART TUTORIAL: RING AROUND THE ROSY
We keep seeing this design again and again on our favourite tumblrs & we decided to finally give it a try. Despite the questionable (ahem…) name, the rim lined nails had to be our next challenge. This design is fairly difficult with extra attention having to be spent on clean even brush strokes & a good test of patience. We love the way it turned out and can’t wait to try it again!
Step 1: After applying a base coat, paint nails with 3 coats of Revlon – Dreamer. This colour is from their newly released line & is perfectly named. This colour has a cloud/dream-like quality to it, not too periwinkle not too powder blue. We have a feeling this colour will be in heavy rotation for us this spring.
Step 2: Using a thin nail art brush, begin painting China Glaze – Liquid Leather at the base of the nail. This creates a ruffian design, which is a style we’ve always love. Start to extend the lines up on the sides.
Step 3: Finish off the design by paiting the tip of the nail to complete the rim/ring. We love the contrast of the pastel Revlon shade against the sharp black. To complete the design we added a little bling – hot pink gems – at the base of nail. Seal in the whole design with a thick layer of top coat.
