If my bank account were a bottomless pit of money, (or if I had any amount of skill) nail art would be my thing. Sadly the reality is that I'm a student with very little hand-eye coordination! However, summer break has caused me to whittle away rainy afternoons by attempting nail art designs, and I finally have one to show you that went well.
The Evil Eye has been all over my tumblr dashboard recently in various shapes and forms - remember that design that Alexa Chung wore?
1) Paint a semi-circle at the base of your nail. Wait for it to dry!
2) Take a nail dotting tool, or cocktail stick, to paint a small light blue dot in the centre of the semi-circle.
3) Once this is dry, paint a small black dot in the centre of the blue dot, to create the pupil.
4) Paint over with a top coat, and you're done!
Let me know your thoughts on this design- do you spend money on manis, or do you DIY?
