nail art: wunderlust

New nail art for the week is up! I've made a video tutorial for this as well so you can check that out below. This week's nail art is all about triangles and they are giving off so much tumblr vibes! I couldn't help but edit the photo and use some filters and effects from my newly bought Afterlights app. I've considered getting it for such a long time and it's actually quite reasonably priced for such pretty filters. 

Most products for this tutorial can be found on Simply Spoiled. Use the code "megoosta" for 40% off your order!

Colours and Materials:

  • Pink - I used a pink colour changing polish which changes from from light pink to dark pink. Not very obvious but you can see the change in the video while I was painting.
  • White
  • Dark red
  • Silver
  • Black
  • Gold glitter
  • Toothpick
  1. Paint your base colour on. 
  2. On your middle and ring finger, start painting white lines. I painted across then diagonally to make the triangles.
  3. Fill in the triangles with colour.
  4. Touch up the lines.
  5. From your bottle of gold glitter, take a toothpick to pick up a speck of glitter to place on your index, little finger and thumb.
  6. Finish with a top coat. 
I think four rows of triangles is a good number, like the one on my ring finger. Got greedy with my middle finger and regretted. 
Also would like to make a special mention to Paul Hewitt for sending this lovely phrep anchor bracelet in navy and pink. One more addition to the arm party. It's super cute and well made with a nice rustic vintage look. Check out their watches too. They go so well, but it's got to go with my DW here. My newest hand chain obsession from forever 21. I need more.
