New Nail tutorial

Hey everybody,

Since I purchased the Claire's nail polishes, I decided I should give it a try on a new nail look. The Claire's nail polish is called Magic. I love the dark purple with fine glittery undertone of a bit dark reddish brown. I really recommended you guys to check out your local Claire's stores to see if this is available. I love this color so much, but my mom does not like it when I where dark nail polish.

Anyways, this is what I got as the result. It is a bit messy since I was in a hurry to do some stuff. Turn out the white dots were not dry yet. This is suppppper eassssy. All you need is Claire's Magic nail polish, white opaque nail polish, top and base coat, and a toothpick. Here is the step:

1. Apply base coat. If you have sheer glittery polishes, u can definitely make this look more fancy by applying them.
2. After the base coat dry, apply Magic like french tips. You can use guiding strip for neater look. I make my own.
3. Wait about 5-7min for that to dry. U might want to apply 2coats of Magic. After all fingers are dry. Use a toothpick and dip it into white nail polish. Dot it on to the tips.
4. Wait until everything is dry. Apply top coat then you are done. Simple!!

I saw this look on faux nails that sold in stores. I thought to myself, why waste money?? I happen to have everything at home. Just need to be creative!!!

Enjoy. And good luck.


  1. Love this - and what a great way to tone down those dark colors (which I love) but still enjoy them. :-)

  2. Very impressive! I have the worst luck with my nails. i don't have a steady hand and I always get it all over. Great job.

  3. Thanks for the comments...@April-don't takes practice. For me, my left hand is always come out nicer since I be able to use my right hand. It takes me forever to do my right hand, and it come out so ugly..hahaha.

  4. Wow! I realy like this :) it looks amazing. The problem I have is that I can never paint the tips right.. and im scared to use such a dark colour because it means that any mistake will be more noticeable! but this is something i definately want to try.. haha thanks!
