NOTD: A Simple Diagonal

Last week, Lioele sent me these nail polishes for review. Since my goal is to create Manicure Mondays in my blog, I thought of starting it off with these new nail polishes. Let's kick-off Manicure Monday, shall we? 


I run into a blog with a Manicure Monday post and was inspired to carry it out here. I totally forgot where and how did I got on that site but I want to say thank you for the inspiration. ^_^

I actually want to give it a little twist! I want to come up with nail arts or different nail design as much as I can for my #ManicureMonday and if time will permit me. This also serves as a new learning for me in creating designs or arts by myself. ^_^

I came up with a diagonal nail art. It is simple and gives a classic look. Since I'm working on my nails all by myself, I didn't got the chance to shoot all the steps on how to do it so I will just enumerate it without photos instead. Boo! :(

STEPS:

1. Clean your nails. Paint your base coat. (Try Caronia nail hardener and base coat)
2. Paint your first color. (Mine's light pink) Then wait for it to dry.
3. Paint the second color diagonally. (Golden Matte is my second)
4. Finish with top coat. 

In some cases, there are brushes that are kind of stiff and difficult to paint diagonally so you can use a scotch tape to cover the other half of your nails instead. Also, it helps if you want the lines to be more straight. Just make sure that the first color is all dried-up before taping it. In my case, I did not do it anymore because the brush of Lioele's nail polishes are very soft and fine making it easy to apply.

uncleaned version :/

Well, you see, it's not a Manic Monday after all, right? How do you find it? I will try a different color next time. I want some pastels on my nails since it's summer. ^_^

It's now Holy Week and let us all reflect and pray. Do some fasting too okay? Cheers ♥

  3. I don't usually put a base coat that's why pala my nail colors/application is so ugly. Nice design by the way. Looks simple to do. :)
