I love pedicures too. But looking back, the only times I've gotten pedicures is for my wedding and the three times I was 9 months preggo and ready to pop! Besides those few wonderful, blissful times, I've always done my nails at home.
Recently I came across a couple of blogs that talk a lot about doing pretty nails at home! My favorite is The Beauty Department! I lo-OVE it! I could read it for hours, getting all kinds of pretty inspiration!
Anyway, I was in need of a toenail change, so I thought I'd see what I had and what I could come up with!
This is how they turned out:
And here are the simple little tools I used:
Simple right?! Three nail polishes: a darkish pink, a light pink and a white! I also used the little sharp wooden stick thing. Do those have a name?! And a Q-tip! You can use really whatever you have at home for your dots! This is just what I happened to have!
Step 1: Paint your toenails the base color, in this case the dark pink!
Step 2: Use your Q-tip to make some light pink dots. You can either pour out some light pink polish and dip the Q-tip into that, or just dip your Q-tip into the bottle, which is what I did! I also only did dots on one side of my nail. Just for fun!
Step 3: Use the pointy stick thing to make some smaller white dots. Again, pour it out or just dip in the bottle!
Step 4: Let dry and then cover with a Top Coat sealer!
Step 5: This step is a must! Wear pretty flip flops and show off your cool new toes!
