Wet n Wild Through The Grapevine Nail Art

Happy Friday! My little break from school is quickly coming to an end. I probably won't have a lot of time for nail art over the summer semester, but we will see. Maybe it won't be so bad. I am taking 3 classes, and of course still have to go to work every day. Being a grown up sucks! :) Anyway, I have to show off this color and also my awesome idea for nail art. It was super fun and I love getting the chance to get all creative, so here goes.

What do you think? I think I like it. Haha - it actually looks the same way on my nails as it did it my head. I love it when that happens. Now here is a plain swatch so you can see this color in daylight.

Isn't it just so lovely?? It's a great purple, and unlike any of the other purples that I have. And most importantly, it was free! These were on sale at Walmart for $.99 and there was a $1 off any Wet n Wild product coupon in this week's Red Plum circular. No complaints when it comes to free things!

Here are a couple of pictures to illustrate how I did this. My first tutorial!
For these square shapes, I used small foam squares from my scrapbooking supply and placed them back to back around a toothpick. I tested out some colors to make sure they were opaque enough and then just stamped the square shape onto my nail, just like the sponge painting I did when I was a kid!
I decided to add a few dots using Zoya Wednesday.
Then I added my top coat to seal it all in ad give some good shine.
What do you think? Is it better with the dots or without? I couldn't decide. :)

As always, thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoyed today's nail art! I think I'm going to do my mom's nails this weekend. If all goes well, I will feature her on this blog maybe next week. She has nice long nails, so I should be able to do something pretty nice...and maybe even something fun and different if she lets me!

    1. Thanks! Glad to hear you think so. My mom said the same thing. :)


Feel free to comment, or even ask questions here as well. I try to respond to everyone within a day or two, and would love to hear what you think about my blog in general, the nail art, or any suggestions you may have.
