So I did this beautiful manicure a little while back, and I really wanted to share it! It had static heart rates and cheetah print and c’mon, who doesn’t love static and cheetah print – CRAZINESS!
Anyways, it only took about half an hour, which I thought was a decent amount of time – especially since I’d never done anything quite so intricate before!
Also, a little sketchiness alert: I didn’t have any of those cool brushes they use in nail salons to draw little patterns, so I went OG [Original Gangsta, for those of you not in the know – P.S. I’m not really in the know either] and used …a TOOTHPICK to draw the designs (hehe)! It was a whole bunch of fun, and y’all should definitely try it!
To do the static, I just did jagged-y lines with an alternate color (black) on top of my base color (hot pink). For the cheetah print, I painted my base color (yellow), then used the first alternate color (orange) to draw little dots in random places and the second alternate color (black) to draw half-moons/semi-circles around them!
What do you guys think? Does anyone else love a DIY manicure?
P.S. I’m planning to replicate the cheetah print mani tonight, minus the static. I’ll let you know how it goes!
