Happy Friday to you all! Yes, technically it is Friday because it is 12:09 am.
Remember my post about the Pomegranate Nail Lacquer Fall 2012 collection? Well…today I have one of those beautiful colors to show you! This is Curator. It is a black jelly base filled with silver and gold hex glitter. It was opaque in two coats, but I will suggest that you put one coat of it over black to get the best results. 🙂 Below, you can see two coats of Curator with a top coat.
I wish that I had a better camera to take micro shots. I’m sure I will be wearing this polish many times this season, so you will be seeing more of it. This polish is totally worth the wait from ordering it online, so head on over and pick up Curator (and any other colors of course) because they are awesome and really great quality.
Now I absolutely love this color, but I really was in the mood to do some nail art!
Finally! Nail art! You guys haven’t seen any nail art for a long time! 🙂
First, I painted all of my nails China Glaze “Flip Flop Fantasy”, my favorite hot pink ever.
After it is completely dry, rip off a piece of scotch tape from the dispenser. Now…here is my reasoning for using scotch tape. I wanted to get a really nice clean edge on the tape, and I didn’t feel like cutting up masking tape. The scotch tape worked perfectly because the corner was perfect with straight lines. I would like to mention that because scotch tape is a little more sticky than masking tape, I stuck the scotch tape onto my pants (leggings, haha) before I laid it on my nail.
Align it so that the tape makes a nice triangle going down the center of your nail towards your cuticle.
Paint one coat of black polish. This is just a basic Sally Hansen black polish.
Remove the tape, and yes it is going to be very messy. Also, as you can see, I didn’t clean up my cuticle at all during the process because I figured they would just get dirty again.
Repeat on all of your nails. To fix the little jagged edges that come from the scotch tape, I used a black striping brush to make cleaner edges and fix any uneven sides.
Because I’m currently in love with Curator, I put one coat of that over the black and ta-da!
This is probably one of the best designs I have ever done. I have literally been wearing it for three hours, and every sorority sister and Target employee I have come into contact with has complimented them (or maybe I’m just imaging that part). I love the glitter in Curator and how it is buried in the black jelly – polishes with the glitter already in them make me happy, especially when they are Pomegranate Nail Lacquer.
Don’t go anywhere too far, because I have another Pomegranate Nail Lacquer Fall 2012 to show you soon! I’ll do some cool nail art with that as well. 🙂
Enjoy your weekend! 🙂
