BEAUTY | Metal Chips on White Nails

Photobucket

Today I did this silver chipped manicure with a couple of left over bits of metallic nail foil.
These nail wraps come in packages that contain 12 foils, two too many. I finally figured out what to do with the spare foils I still had lying around. I covered parts of my nails with asymmetrically cut bits of foil to make a geometric transition between the metallic silver and the white matte painted nails.

I've always wondered how people are able to make their nails metallic like yours. Now I know. If work allowed me to have painted nails, trust me. I would try it out by now.

THATS GRYT, Aves Gry

Incognito said...

I was looking for so much time for such a thing, I mean in nail polish...I still wish it exists, the idea of having something kind of glued to my nail doesn't appeal me but the result on you is absolutely stunning !

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!http://berbagaicaraterbaik.wordpress.com
