Bow Nail Art

Dakota from Luxurious Nails did an awesome YouTube tutorial for creating a bow on your nails. I absolutely loved this and had to try it myself.

As you can see I used a different color combination than Dakota who used a flesh toned base. The colors I used were:

  • L’Oreal’s Not a Cloud in Sight
  •  Ceramic Glaze, Exotic Dragonfruit
  • Sally Hansen Complete Manicure 410 Lavender Cloud (looks almost white)
  • Sally Hansen Black Nail Art Pen

It is a little rough around the edges but still not a bad look for a first attempt. I love it! And I was totally impressed with myself for days afterward.

The Not a Cloud in Sight shade is kind of goopy and does not like to be overworked with more than a stroke or two. But the color is fabulous. It definitely requires at least two coats for a smooth solid finish but like I say it is finicky.

The Sally Hansen nail art pen is one of my favorite tools because I find it so much easier to use for details than a brush. But lately I’ve noticed it has been smearing when I put my top coat on, even if I have waited 30 minutes. One of the clerks suggested drying drops so I’ll let you know how that turns out.
