BEAUTY | Outlined Nails

Ring: part of this set

After seeing countless versions of outlined nails all over pinterest and trying to replicate them by outlining my nails with markers and nail art sets to no avail, I found out that I made it unnecessarily hard. By doing it the other way around and applying the color of the outline first as a base and on top of that the color of the 'inside' of the nail, the result turned out much better, I finished it off with a layer of matte topcoat. And though I really like how it turned out, plain white nails are still my favorite mani.

Hi anonymous: I use a very cheap nail polish (Hema) but cover it with a great matt finish topcoat from Rimmel, hope this helped!

Jasmin said...

Claudia Grande said...

Ha, this instantly made me put on some matte top coat!

Julia Percia David said...

Such a good combination! It makes me think about the white lines of basic grey sweatshirts.

I think this is a cool idea. I think I might try this with a transparent polish or a pastel and silver nail foils. Your blog is the best for inspiration!

Superleuk de combinatie van twee kleuren!
Ik had onlang witte nagellak gezien op Atlantic Pacific blog en ik had nooit verwacht dat het er zo leuk zou uitzien. Ik ben nu zelf opzoek naar witte nagellak maar ze vallen vaak te doorschijnend uit.
Heel toffe blog!x
