I love painting my nails. Whether it’s a simple, solid, neutral color or a wild and funky design, nail art is just another way I am able to express myself! But all of my hard work and time spent on my nails seems silly the second my nails decide to chip. I know chipped nails is a part of every girl’s life (unfortunately…), but I can’t help but get frustrated when my nails chip after only one day!
Yesterday, I painted my nails a fabulous bright pink color that I received for free from Victoria’s Secret. I thought the color was perfect for the summertime against my tan skin. Well, when I woke up this morning to find the ends of my nails all chipped, let’s just say I wasn’t the happiest camper. How did my nails even chip in my sleep?!
Mystery aside, I decided that instead of repainting my nails all over again, I was going to design some nail art to save my nails! I picked up my Essie polish in licorice and got to work!
The design is very simple, just a black French tip and a vertical line going down each index finger nail. I thought the vertical line looked a little strange on it’s own, so I added a few polka dots in the hot pink base color. I still get to rock the fabulous hot pink color that I wanted to, but I don’t have to see any chipped nails! Not yet, at least…
