Pretty recently, I asked on Twitter if any of you had suggestions for nail-art designs to do on my friend.
I got a lot of great suggestions, but I settled on a simple gradient as well as dots.
Here’s the Glitter Manicure…on a MAN that I created!
Haha, originally, I was thinking about making this manicure more masculine, but as I started painting, it ended up being girly. 😉
Glitter Manicure…on a MAN Swatches
All swatches have:
- Essie First Base (Base Coat)
- Background Gradient:
- China Glaze For Audrey
- China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint
- Deborah Lippmann Fade to Black (Provided by PR)
- Rescue Beauty Lounge Recycle
- Misa Confection Section
- Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
Step 2: Using the same sponge, I applied China Glaze For Audrey to the lower half.
Step 3: Added random dots.
Step 4: I wanted to add more dots, but in a different colour. So I asked him to pick the colour. He chose this green. Haha, I think it looks messy, but I had fun using the dotting tool.
Step 5: Finally, I covered everything with some fun glitter before applying a top coat.
Here’s another look at it:
And believe it or not, haha, he even asked me to take a photo of it without my camera’s flash and in artificial light, just to see how it would look. So, here’s that shot:
As usual, I had a lot of fun painting his thumb nail. 😉 This time, it was more abstract, but next time, I think I may want to paint something like a piggy or other animal.
Do you have any suggestions for what I can paint on him next time?
Edit: Hey, check this out! Steve Winfield presented me with the National Association of Polished And Lacquered Men (NAPALM) Award! I’m 1 of 2 people who have been honoured with this. The other blogger is Scrangie, my favourite beauty/nail blogger! 🙂 So that’s a double honour!
