Don't Get Mad, GET PLAID!

Happy Monday No Naked Nailers! Are you suffering from a Case of the Mondays this morning? Don't fret... I've got the answer!

Don't get mad! GET PLAID!!!


You just can't be in a bad mood with a rockin' plaid print on your nails. Well, I can't... that's for sure. For this plaid ensemble, I used:
  • 1 coat of CND Stickey base coat
  • 2 coats of butter LONDON Marrow
  • A striper brush, acrylic craft paint, and Stripe Rite silver glitter for the plaid stripes (And yes, they're freehand... I'm totally a perfectionist, that's why I didn't do this design on EACH nail. It would have taken forever!!)
  • 1 coat of Looks Wet top coat
  • 1 coat of CND Super Shiney top coat
I am definitely diggin' butter LONDON Marrow. Wow. They have "butter" in their name for a reason. This stuff goes on so smoothly and it is the richest plum color. The color is a bit off in the photo... but is so beautiful in person. There is also a very subtle shimmer in it, though I couldn't capture it in the photo.

On a side note... which is better... the photo above? Or the photo below? Let me know!! I'm debating doing a switch-up on my photo style.


Now, if you've still got a Case of the Mondays... go paint some plaid nail art on your own nails! You can thank me later :)

  5. Thank you all!!! Angie, yes, they're freehand. That's why I didn't do every nail... because it would have taken forever! Thank you though! -- Annelise
