Turquoise

This was insanely easy. Like, 3 steps that I could have done when I first started blogging easy. Girls, if you are new to this (or just like easy things that look awesome), look no further! Turquoise nails 🙂

I followed the tutorial laid out by the fabulous lacquerstyle. Basically, blue creme base, top coat. Wait for it to dry. Apply a little bit of gold polish using saran wrap. Watermarble black creme, and spray hairspray (or perfume) on it so it spreads. Dip your nails. Voila!

The big keys here are WAIT TILL THE BLUE IS DRY. Or saran wrapping is a mess. And tape your nails before you dip in the watermarbled black, or clean up sucks.

I also added a few gold accents after the black was done. Sadly, I think I over did the gold layer with the saran wrap…if (when?) I do these again, I’ll go a bit more gentle on the gold! Oops. Hope you enjoyed!

    These look great just like a piece of jewelry.

  6. I don’t think you overdid the gold at all. I think it is absolute perfection.
