I took a few weeks of from doing my manicures and boy oh boy did my nails suffer. The chips and cracks that once lived on my nail beds have been repaired and I am back to doing my #POTW (polish of the week — in case you’ve forgotten or a new click) posts.
I would recommend getting a partner for this DIY nail post. Maybe have a slumber party or something because it took me SIX tries before I got it right. What normally is a relaxing evening of nail polish and Gossip Girl turned into a complete disaster — almost. You’re gonna need a steady hand, a focused eye, and perhaps even some Anita Baker playing in the background to “get cha mind” right.

After I painted my nails with OPI A Roll in the Hague and ZOYA Dove, I let my nails fully dry. I’m talking a good 20 minutes later. I then used Sinful Nail Art polish in black to create the lines. You can use any nail art polish, just be sure the brush is long and skinny somewhat similar to your liquid eyeliner brush. You don’t have to be perfect by any means, I mean it is a DIY project. But I would recommend playing around with the polish a bit on a piece of paper first before using it on your nails. The biggest challenge is painting my nails with the hand I don’t write with so imagine trying to draw lines. But I managed..
