OPI Nail Envy Base Coat
Seche Vite Top Coat
Nails Inc Gel Effect, St James (red)
Sephora Formula X, Potent (light pink)
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear, White On
Color Club, Mrs. Robinson (magenta)
Nail Tape *this will soon be your BEST friend
Step 1: After applying your base coat, paint 2 coats of Sephora Formula X, Potent. Let dry completely. To hurry up the process, I apply a thin layer of my absolute FAVE quick dry top coat, Seche Vite.
Step 2: When your nails are completely dry (did I mention they have to be commplleeeetllly dry?) Place three pieces of your nail tape in the pattern I did.
Step 3: Paint the top quadrant with Nails Inc Gel Effect St James, middle with Color Club Mrs Robinson and bottom with Sally Hansen White On. Don’t worry if you get polish on your skin. It’s hard not to when working in such small spaces! If you find it too hard to stay in the lines with the nail polish brush, use a thinner eyeshadow brush or dotting tool to have more control.
Step 4: Slowly remove the tape (while the paint is still semi-wet). Clean up any access paint around your skin with acetone and your cleanup brush. When your nails are completely dry, apply a layer of your top coat!
VOILA! You have a totally remixed valday mani! If I inspired you to create this look, please tag @theGLITTERYblog on Instagram so I can see your LOVEly masterpiece!
