Hi lovelies! Today I’d like to show you what I wore on my nails for Father’s Day: a pair of blue argyle socks that are so cute they will knock your socks off! 🙂 This adorable design was inspired by the multi-talented Manal from @naildecor on Instagram.
For this manicure I used the following supplies:
- My favorite base and top coats (OPI Nail Envy and Poshé Super Fast-Drying Top Coat)
- Polishes: OPI Can’t Find my Czechbook, L’Oréal Royally Yours and Essie Blanc
- Nail Rhinestones from BornPrettyStore
- Nail Art Striping Brush from Winstonia Store
I started out with a base of the light blue polish (L’Oréal Royally Yours) and let it dry completely. Next I used my nail art striper and the dark blue polish (OPI Can’t Find My Czechbook) and added an “X” on my index and ring fingernails. I then filled in the left- and right-hand sides of the X with the dark blue polish.
Next I used the white polish (Essie Blanc) and my nail art striper to add accent lines alongside the “X”. Finally I used a small dab of topcoat to add silver rhinestones to the non-argyled fingernails.
I sealed the design with topcoat and called it day (be sure to let your argyle nails dry considerably before applying topcoat! If you don’t wait long enough the topcoat can cause the colors, especially the white, to bleed and ruin your hard work)!
If you’d like to see these steps in action, take a look at a short and sweet video tutorial I created to accompany this post:
