Hi! I’m Nidia, and I run a blog called Lit From Within. I first want to thank Steph for allowing me to guest on her wonderful blog! I’m the first to say that I’m imperfectly painted, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
My blog mostly focuses on nails and nail art, but I believe in promoting the idea that all women should feel beautiful. Sometimes, my friends tell me that they can’t paint their nails because they’re too short, or they’re too old for glitter, or too shy to wear bright lipstick, or even too embarrassed to go make-up free. I think we need to throw away that fake rulebook and embrace what makes us feel good about ourselves.
I am loving this multi-layer nail polish trend, so that’s what I have for you today.
Here’s how I did it: after I applied my basecoat, I used two coats of Revlon Buttercup, a very pale yellow. Then I took a makeup sponge and applied a little bit of China Glaze Metallic Muse (light blue) and Orly Ingenue (metallic pink) for some sparkle and color. I love painting daisies on my nails because they’re an ‘imperfectly perfect’ flower – in nature they all look slightly different, and no one cares if they’re missing a petal or are different colors. I started with a white base of the flower, and then colored in the petals with Sally Hansen HD in Wavelength (hot pink/coral) and Hue (yellow) and then dotted in the centers with Pure Ice Black Rage for detail.
I hope you like it! If you decide to make your version of it, I hope you’ll leave a comment and let me know. Have a great day!
*Many thanks to Nidia for this great post!
