Nail Art with Heather

Hello, Wildflowers! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

I know I’ve been M.I.A. the last few days, but times have been busy around my household. I’ve been having a great winter break, though, spending time with family and eating entirely too much delicious food!

Now, without further ado, I’d like to introduce one of my best friends, Heather…

Heather is good at many things, and one of those things happens to be sporting some bad azzzz nails on the reg. Since this is the case, I thought we should get together so I can sport some B.A. nails myself.

We both brainstormed….and by brainstormed I mean we looked at our pinboards on Pinterest, and I came across this little gem that we decided to try.

First, get some painter’s tape…

Then cut it into tiny strips. Next, choose the polish that will ‘peek’ through…

I chose to do an accent nail, but you can do all of your nails if you want. Paint a pattern on your nails and allow that to dry. Then add a couple of strips of painter’s tape…

Next, paint over the entire nail, including the tape, with one color. Allow that to dry.

A little side note: sticking your fingers in ice water helps the polish to dry faster!

Once the polish is dry, peel off the painter’s tape and BAM! Fabulous nails.

I personally like to call this the Peek-A-Boo manicure…

And Heather’s nails turned out bad azzz as usual…

This post is perfect timing because every lady should rock some Bad Azzz nails for New Years. So try it! Really, try it. You know you want to…
