Getting a little tired of Greens and Pinks

I didn't really like the earlier pink mani that I sported
Even some of the people around me didn't really like it;
Had one friend who went, "So Sweet! NOT YOU!"
So here's the new one that I did on Monday

Polishes used are:
Nfu-Oh #157,
OPI Greenwich Village,
OPI Alphine Snow,
Art Club striper in Green,
Art Club striper in Emerald Green,
and cheap $1 silver glitter striper.

Swatch of Nfu-Oh #157, 3 coats.

and this one is taken with flash.
Pic makes it look like its glowing in the dark eh =)


And since I had time on my hands that day, I also did a piture tutorial.

Step 1: Paint Base Coat
Step 2: Paint the base colour first.
I usually go for a lighter-coloured base for the simple reason that its easier to cover and contrast a light-coloured polish with a darker one.

Step 3: Using a darker-coloured polish, paint from bottom left of nail to the top right part. You can do it as a straight line across, or if you're more adventurous, you could do a curve like mine.
Don't worry too much about getting a clean line. You can always go over with another coat. Plus in this case, it'll eventually be "covered up" with the striper.

Step 4: Choose another contrasting coloured striper. Draw the outline in the same direction as you did with the polish in step 3.

Step 5: Using the glitter striper, do the same in step 4. However this time, start approx one-quarter from above the base.

Step 6: With another contrasting coloured striper, repeat the same step but this time, it's more of a tiny line that starts slightly above and ends before the glitter line

Step 7: Add in the white dots using either a dotting tool or a pin
Step 8: Apply top coat and you're done!
*phew! not easy to try to describe the steps!*

Had time so even the toes had a little nail art on them too =)

Right foot.

and the left one.

I'm getting a little tired of seeing Pinks and Greens on my tips.
Might end up doing a totally different colour for the next nail art.
