Lattice Tips with Tutorial

Hello you beautiful! This is just a simple design to spruce up a plain old manicure. Just add some strokes in the form of the letter X to your tips to create a simple lattice design. 



First you want to choose a base polish and apply enough coats for full opacity. I used two coats of L.A. Girl Metal nail polish in Deep Sea Mica. It’s a gorgeous blue green colour. 


Next you want to get a white stripper polish to make the first part of your “X”. I’m using Nail fusion Basic white. This is a brand of polish made by Sacha Cosmetics. Since I’m right handed it was easier to make the strips going from left to right first. So with a small amount of white polish on your stripper brush add four to five diagonal lines as shown below. 


Now to add the other part of the “X”. I found it easier to complete this part with my hand laid flat out instead of making a fist. The main point here is that you want to form your “X” but overlapping a bit to form your lattice design. Add top coat and you’re all done!


Now you can change up this design with endless possibilities of base polish and stripper polish. Just make sure you get enough contrast between the two colours of your choice. Enjoy, until next time!
Happy Lattice!
XOXO

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise!
