Becoming Sleek

Nails: Humble Beginnings

Posted on: June 6, 2013

We all have to start somewhere. My journey to becoming sleek (hee hee) must therefore include becoming adept at nail art. I will begin at the barest of art: dots.

As you may have read a few weeks ago I have acquired a few bottles of Dazzle Dry lacquers (spoiler: I bought more! will upload soon!). I decided to embark on my nail art journey with two of these lacquers: a base of Lavender Parade and dots of White Lightning.

And of course, I came equipped this time with a propper dotting tool. This is a BK Nail System dotting tool which I bought from Landmark Trinoma, for only about Php70.

It comes with two heads, a regular straight dotting head and a bent-tip dotting head. For this beginner’s art I used the bent-tip as dotting is much easier with that.

Here is the finished nail art. I just started with a base of 2 coats of Lavender Parade, then dotted three small White Lightning dots on the outer side of my nails. Quite simple, but I think that it’s acceptable and even a bit classy.

hi again pat 🙂 i like this color combination. similar din pala ung dotting tool natin pero i think masmanipis ung sayo and i like that. ang hirap maghanap ng nail art tools here in the south 😦 do you know where to get those super think brushes for nail arts?

You can check Landmark in Makati, I got mine at Landmark Trinoma. I like the bent head because it makes dotting very stable. There are lots more tools I saw, maybe I’ll get some more and blog about them. 🙂

sige ill look forward to that 🙂 i saw another nail art tool today its a pen tool from etude house but limited ung colors so i didn’t buy them muna ^^

Oh! I saw something similar from The Face Shop. I didn’t buy it din hehe.
