With freezing weather in New York City, I’m getting ready for spring - here’s to hoping this pastel nail art beckons some sun and spring blooms. I’ve always wanted to give hounds tooth a try and after watching some Youtube videos online, I decided that a pastel hounds tooth pattern would go lovely with lush pink roses - think of an Old English countryside picnic during the spring months. A girl can dream during the polar vortex, right?
The polishes I used were Zoya Neely, and Sally Hansen Insta-dri Pink Blink (on sale for only $2), Sally Hansen Silver Sweep and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polish in Commander in Chic (also on sale for $2). The polishes I use for nail art are usually very opaque formulas, since that makes layering and painting the designs much easier. Imagine adding layers and layers over one rose to get some opacity (what nail art woes are made of)..but thankfully, all of the Sally Hansen polishes and the Zoya featured are extremely opaque, apply beautifully, and dry fast.
I hope you enjoy these pretty nail art designs as much as I do and please let me know in the comments if you’d want to see any specific nail tutorials in the future. If you always wondered how you could create a pattern or design, I’ll be coming to the rescue with a step-by-step nail art tutorial.
