Nail File Friday’s: Yellow and Black Nail Polish

What do I do when I can’t make up my mind between using two colors – I use both! I’ve been doing this lately, which seems to be very ‘in’ and in trend – combining colors, doing multiple colors at once. It’s so fun! There’s also no need to take things ultra difficult, I like to make things easy, because let’s be honest, I don’t have that much time.

Nail Polish Used: OPI Exotic Birds Do Not Tweet (canary yellow) and Essie Licorice (black)

Nail Tools Used: Nail Brush + Dotter  for cleaning the sides of the nails and dotter for making the dots on ring finger and thumb

Initially I was thinking that the color combination I was choosing was going to look a bit ‘bumble bee-ish.’ However, I love the final look!

Step One:  1 Coat of ‘Seche’ Base Coat

Step Two:   3 Coats of the ‘Exotic Birds Do Not Tweet’ Nail Polish – 3 coats for a brighter yellow (three strokes per coat on each nail)

Allow the nail polish to completely dry before doing any nail art ….

Step Three:   Using a piece of aluminum foil, place a bit of the ‘Licorice’ Nail Polish on it, dip the dotting tool and create a diagonal like with dots – wipe the dotter clean by dipping it in acetone after each use, going in a zig zag like pattern, continue to create the dots

Allow the dots to completely dry before apply the top coat ….

Step Four:  1 Coat of ‘Out The Door’ Top Coat

This is optional ….

‘Cuccio’ Cuticle Oil – Milk & Honey  – Cuticle oil will avoid your cuticles from drying that can happen from the nail acetone, it helps keep your cuticles moisturized

Have a great Friday!
