Simple Nail Art

    
     Today I have a simple nail art look to share with you. It's going to be a quick post today since I just got back from my last camping trip of the summer. I love going away, but the adjustment back to everyday life can be brutal.

     The look I have for you today is really easy to do. I'm confident that anyone can replicate this look. And the great thing about it is, that you can use any colors you want. It does require a dotting tool or anything you can find that makes small dots.

      For this manicure, I did an accent nail of Lumina Lacquer Soleil with Pretty & Polished Carrigan. I chose these two colors because well the first reason is that I just love Soleil and want to use it in every manicure I can, but mostly because I knew that I needed a soft, feminine color to go along with all that sparkly. (And maybe because Carrigan was that days nail mail.) But I think they work really well together.

     With my medium sized dotting tool I added dots to the lower center of my nails tying the whole look together.  A little bit of flash on every nail never hurt anyone, am I right.  So what do you think of my simple nail art look? Would you add the dots to an existing manicure to change up your look from day to day?

     Now if you'll excuse me I  have to go unpack and get started on laundry. Or maybe I'll just relax and paint my nails. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!

  4. I LOVE the gold shimmer with the pale pink! The little dot you added to each nail to tie it back to the accent. Super chic and fun!

    1. This is such an easy way to dress up a manicure. I actually do it all the time with day old manicures that are plain polish. They just never seem to make it to the blog.

  9. Yes I would do it like you did here, it really ties it together, as you say. Pretty!

    1. Thanks. I wore Soleil alone and even though I loved it, all that sparkle was a little too much for a manicure. I think an accent nail is just what it was made for.

  10. Great idea! Using glitters as if they were studs, I must give it a go myself too.
    Love the way the glitters create a contrast with the pink polish! <3

  11. Lovely! And wow, that golden holo glitters, I'm speechless about it!
    I usually revive my manis adding glitters gradients because the problem is always the tipwear!

    1. My purchase of Soleil is by far my favorite nail polish purchase of the last 2 years. I just love it! I might have to get myself a back up bottle.
