PRODUCTS NEEDED

Favorite Nail Polish Color | Clear Nail Polish | Tape | Nail Polish Remover | Q-tips

I’ve never been a big nail art person because, let’s face it, I’m not talented or skilled enough for it. Ha! I can barely paint my nails normally without getting the polish all over my entire hand. My motto when painting nails is, “it will look good after I shower.” lol. Anyways, my cousin (technically she’s my dad’s 2nd cousin’s daughter…so does that make her my 2nd cousin once removed? Anyone know how that all works? Oh, and she’s also been my hair dresser for the last 5 years, but she’s 2 1/2 hours away from me and after 5 years of driving all that way to get my hair cut, I’m trying to find someone closer, which is what led to that horrible haircut I’ve been complaining about for the past month and a half)…now I forgot where I was headed with my story. Oh yeah, she had her nails painted similar to this (hers were ovals instead of triangles), and I thought it was cool and edgy looking and totally wanted to copy it. I decided do triangles because I didn’t have any special rounded tape, and I didn’t feel like going to the store to buy some. I just used tape I had lying around the house + my favorite nail polish and tada! The q-tip soaked in nail polish remover was a big help for me because in some places I didn’t press the tape down all the way and the polish seeped under the tape. But it was super easy to clean up any mistakes. I promise you, this nail design is sooooo easy. If I can do it, you can do it 🙂

P.S. It’s my mom’s birthday today! Happy Birthday Mom! Thanks for being the best mom a gal could ask for. I love you!

XO, Kacie
