nail art: ocean lights


Took many shots of these but I'm still not quite satisfied with my photo. 

Well, my nails for the week are in a gorgeous shade of dark blue. I actually painted it over a black base to make the colour more intense. This blue would also be perfect to do galaxy nails. It's just so mysterious and magical. 

I also added a triangular shaped pattern filled with silver glitter. I used scotch tape to accomplish this. All you gotta do is make sure that your polish is dry before sticking on the tape to use as guides. Then, paint your desired colour on and remove the tape slowly, peeling in the direction which your nails grow i.e. from the base to the tip of your nail.

It is super simple to do these but I think my choice of colours make these nails more suitable for prom or for a night out. Also, the silver glitter triangles keep reminding me of a white christmas. 

4 more weeks of school and I'll be more free (hopefully) to do other diy projects to share! Also, can't wait to start my summer job at universal studios ;)
