Design #1 – Holiday Dotticure
Well it’s finally here! The day before Thanksgiving.. marked as one of the busiest travel days of the year! So, with that being said, for anyone who has the day off and is stuck in traffic, sitting in the car with screaming kids or waiting around idly for your plane to depart here’s a few easy nail art looks for you to pass the time. 🙂
The colors I used in my first Essie Winter Dotticure are Bahama Mama & Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low. Both from Essie’s Winter Collections.
All you’ll need are these two colors and a dotting tool.
Step 1: After applying your clear base coat. Apply 2 coats of Bahama Mama to every nail.
Step 2: I like to put a little polish down on some saran wrap or tin foil first. Dip my dotting tool into the polish and dot away!
Apply a dot the center base of each nail.
Finish up with 1 coat of your favorite dry fast top coat & VOILLA!
Design #2 – Reverse Glitter French Gradient
Bahama Mama by Essie – base
Summit of Style by Essie – Glitter
Top Coat – Seche Vite
In this design I used the same base coat Bahama Mama & the brand new Glitter Polish by Essie from the Luxe Effects line called Summit of Style.
All you have to do for this is starting with solid nails.
Apply Summit of Style to the base of your nail and lightly drag the brush up towards the center of the nail. If you want more glitter at the base just daub a few extra layers of glitter over the area you want the most coverage of glitter.
Follow up with a clear dry fast top coat and you’re Good To GO!
