First, I have to say, today marks four years of blogging for BeautyJudy! Happy Bloggiversary to me!
The last four years have been such an adventure, and I am more into blogging than I was when I started out. I’m sorry I don’t have a fancy giveaway…stay tuned, I might do something soon though! Here’s my very first post. Holy cow, how my blog has evolved from those first ideas I outlined, and from those first few posts I had. In my lip plumper post, I don’t even think I had ANY photos yet I went on and on about a million lip plumpers LOL.
Anyway, back to my regularly scheduled programming…I had to blog about my nails from last Wednesday, because I about died of a fangirl moment when Lisa Logan (celebrity manicurist…the woman who made sure Beyonce’s nails were amazing for the Presidential Inauguration and the Super Bowl) fawned over my mani and took a picture. I think I did a pretty good job maintaining my cool but wowsers! I was flattered!!
Plus, I loved my mani anyway, and kept it on for three days, with only another coat of top coat and one touch-up to refresh it on day two!
In keeping with some of the nail art trends we’re seeing – 3D nail art and lots of lines – I used JulieG for Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics nail polish shades in Tokyo Nights and Cabana Boy with square silver studs I got from DollarNailArt.com. Here’s how it came out:
Here’s how I did it:
- Apply one coat of base coat. I used Cult Nails Get It On.
- Apply two coats of Tokyo Nights
- Apply one stripe of Cabana boy down the middle of the nail, from nail base to tip. I made the line a little thicker.
- Place a silver square stud at the base of the nail.
- Seal the design in place with one coat of top coat, allowing for a little more top coat at the base to cover the stud well. I used Cult Nails Wicked Fast.
And poof! You’re done! Easy, peezy.
What do you think – is this something you would try? Have you incorporated studs in your nail art at all?
