A Patchwork Manicure

First off, I am never doing a patchwork manicure anymore. Maybe it's just my polishes... but it took so ridiculously long! 

Please excuse my cuticles in this picture. I was clearly having issues. 



First I applied Purely Pearl from Petites. Then I waited for it to dry and laid a piece of scotch tape diagonally across my nail. I applied the pink color, Sinful Colors Vacation TIme. The black is from ELF. I've used it before here

I got the idea from this nail blog.  I think it looks very nice, but it just took so long that it's hardly worth it.  I still love the idea of doing nail art without any artistic talent though. Please share your designs with me!

  10. So cute! I haven't done nail art in a while, but I might try this. You did a good job :) Vacation Time looks nice too, I'm glad to see what it looks like on someone's nails. I'll be doing swatches on those polishes for sure, but probably after exams. I'm swamped this weekend :( I shouldn't even be on here LOL
