I like my makeup, my fashion, my overall approach to life, to be a mix of high end and low end. So when I wanted to try my hand at at-home nail art for the first time, going the high end/low end route was just natural and right and FUN. But the question was — what color to go for?
I turned to Twitter and asked — sweet and ladylike, or bright and wild?
The overwhelming consensus was, bright and wild. But still I felt stuck for a color — bright nails AND a first attempt at nail art? Seemed like a fail just waiting to happen. Then inspiration struck in the form of a Sam Sparro song. Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold.
Please note, I love painting but precision has never been a friend of mine. I decided to try a star on my thumb, and it didn’t come out so great.
But the stripes, SO easy.
Both polishes dried amazingly well. Layered with a good top coat, this manicure is built to last! The combination is eye catching but not distracting, fly and flashy but not over the top. I’ve been getting tons of compliments on my first attempt at nail art, so I definitely plan on doing more! The Milani precision brush makes it SO easy.
What do you think – would this be a manicure you’d go for? Or do you have tips so I can do a better job? Let me know your thoughts!
