Nail Art: Ballet Fishnets

Salut mes amis!!

As some of you may know, I was the lucky winner of Yami's giveaway on her blog The Dark Side of Beauty. This week I received her package and was sooo thrilled to discover my prize: 8 beautifully packed nail polishes in total--7 tropical inspired polishes from Sinful Colors plus one gooorgeous color from OPI. I am dying to try all of them at once, so the next few of my nail posts will feature Yami's polishes.

Today, I created a simple nail art design using Easy Going from Sinful Colors as a base and Sally Hansen nail art pens in silver and black for the fishnets :)

Easy Going is a beautiful color to wear alone or as a base for any nail design. The color is a very opaque ballet pink and would look gorgeous against any skin tone. If you're particularly fair, this polish will definitely make your hands a bit more tanned looking, as most white-ish nail polishes tend to. The consistency of the product is great as well, and two coats create the perfect finish just as it looks in the bottle.

Step 1: Apply 2 coats of Easy Going

Step 2: Draw diagonal lines with Sally Hansen nail art pen in Silver, then criss-cross by drawing the diagonal lines in the opposite direction to create the fishnet.

Step 3: Draw tiny dots using Sally Hansen nail art pen in black at the criss-cross points to highlight them
Finish with your favorite topcoat. My fave is Duri Rejuvacote :)

Aaaand, if I may brag a little, here's my prize :D THANX YAMI!!! and yes, that is her cute handwritten Hello Kitty note underneath the polishes ;))) The colors (from left to right): Sinful Colors--Easy Going; Beautiful Girl; Star Fish; Verbena; OPI--Teenage Dream; SC--Open Seas; Seaweed; Adventure Island.
