This week’s pattern wasn’t one of my original ideas. I found the idea on Pinterest, which originated from this link. I painted half my nails in the lighter color, half in the darker color, and then used a pencil dipped in nail polish to add the dotted pattern. Some nails came out better than others. Nail Polish: Maybelline Express Finish Advanced Wear Base & Top Coat, Sinful Colors Nova, Sinful Colors (Label Missing: Unknown Name.)
This week my nails look a lot better in person than in the picture above. Yet again these were a mistake covering a mistake, covering an idea that didn’t work, but I still like how they came out. In person they’re actually a dark purple/blue with an airbrushed-looking silver sort of sheen over them. They kind of remind me of snow or at least definitely a wintery-look. I wound up painting them the dark color, using a cosmetic sponge to blot the silver/shimmery color over them, then dipped a pencil point into the same dark color and put some random dots all over. Nail Polish: Maybelline Express Finish Advanced Wear Base & Top Coat, Sinful Colors Out Of This World, Sinful Colors Mesmerize.
This is not one of my original designs, though the color choice was my own. I did this a few months ago with a black Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen. Nail Polish: Revlon Strong Wear With Calcium 02 Clear, Sinful Colors (Label Missing = Unknown Name.)

This is what my nails look like this week. Why? The stars, outer space, and galaxies are awesome. -Plus one of my cats is named Galaxy, how is this not so me?
Nail Polish: Sally Hanson Maximum Growth Plus Base + Top Coat, Wet’n’Wild 415A Denim Chrome, Sinful Colors Snow Me White, Sinful Colors Boom Boom, Sinful Colors Super Star. I used a cosmetic sponge as in the tutorial and a pencil instead of a nail dotter. Though I painted them on my own, I used this tutorial as a guide: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mB5CUZheGpg&feature=share
