If you know me, you’ll know that I canter on my merry way without a second thought to the condition of my nails. Ginger’s eyes twitch ever so slightly at the sight of the aftermath of my 2-week-old self-done mani coat. It takes him a couple of “Leana, when are you going to do your nails again?” for me to finally get sick of it and take it off, after which, my nails would be naked for weeks.
Last week I saw an Instagram post by Beauty South Africa that has changed the way I do my nails forever.
Start off with a base coat. I love Tip Top Nails vitamin E base coat – and it dries really quickly. If you don’t have a base coat, you could use any clear colour. I’ve been toying with the idea of a clear glitter coat.
1) Cut toothpicks in half (You’ll use the thicker part and not the pointy part). Take your first toothpick half (you can also use a dotting tool if you have one), dip into your first colour and dot wherever the hell you feel like it!
And then you’re done!
