Chic Couture-Copy Cat Mani

I was strolling through Pinterest earlier this week and came across a beautiful mani that I had stuff to try!
It always makes me a little sad when you click on a pin and it takes you to "uploaded by user" or to a photo sharing site, which is where I landed when I clicked on it. I like to see the how-to! But it didn't take long for me to figure out how to do it and though it's not exactly like the original I'm still pleased with the out come!
Here's my inspiration...

I love the sparkles!! And I have a perfect knockoff of it! And I recently bought a beige!
Here's what I have...

Base Coat: Avon Nail Experts Smooth Beginnings
Avon Speed Dry in Street Beige
Milani in Disco Lights
Top Coat:  Sally Hansen Hard as Nails in Crystal Clear

I do my nails at night time after putting Lil' Hunkie to bed so I have a cell phone pic of how I used the tape so sorry it's poor lighting!
The only tape I had was double stick so definitely use regular tape...double stick was way tricky!!

After painting nails beige and the ring fingers all sparkly let dry. Then position tape at the base of nail to create a triangle. Then paint on the sparkles!  I did leave the tape on too long so when I removed it the sparkles came up....trail and error with this mani! I touched up as best I could!  ☺ 

I did do 2 coats of beige and 4 coats of the sparkle on the ring fingers.  
Other than leaving the tape on too long, I'm loving it! This is my first mani with an accent finger!
So what do ya think?

Happy Friday!

great nail look! xo said...

That is soooo cute!! My toes are always painted, but I haven't painted my nails in forever because they already chipped so quickly and it drove me crazy. Probably from all this chasing little boys around! :)
