Easy Nail Design

Hello fashionistas!
I must confess... I am horrible at painting my nails.. 
Seriously. If there is a way that I can smudge them or get the nail polish all over my hands then it will probably happen. The funniest part is the fact that I have way too many nail polishes and I am too inept at nail painting to use them. 


I saw this over on Pinterest the other day and really liked it, but kind of knew that I would not be able to do it, but I still pinned it. A girl can dream, right? 



Left to right: Essie Turquoise and Caicos, Pure Ice Fast Lane, and Sally Hansen Double Duty Base and Top Coat. 

I had already painted my nails Turquoise and Caicos, but decided I wanted to do something more to them. I decided to attempt the nail art that I had seen on Pinterest. 
I wish I could give you more of a play by play as to what I did, but all I did was get a bit of the gold nail polish on the brush and put it on the nail at an angle. I tried to keep a really steady hand to make sure that the lines were pretty even. 



I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty happy with the outcome! I think I will probably try this with some other colors, maybe hot pink with silver accent.

Are you guys nail design gurus or poor painters like I am?

Hope you're well!
