I don't know about you fellow worker bees out there, but I find it near impossible to find the time to pamper myself anymore. Working 9-5 - what a way to make livin' (couldn't resist!) - and commuting an hour and a half each way leaves me hardly anytime to eat and catch up with Made in Chelsea (yes, I have a very poor taste in TV), let alone do my nails...
I'm hoping that my next placement will be nearer to home but until then, I will continue to attempt to keep my nails interesting in the least time-consuming way possible. If you've read any of my blog posts before, you'll know that I am obsessed with geometric shapes. I recently saw some lovely nail designs on google, which although I have neither the time or skill to recreate, I thought I'd have a go at creating my own far simpler version with sellotape.
1. Paint all over with colour one | 2. Leave colour one to dry | 3. Place sellotape diagonally across the nail | 4. Paint over the exposed nail with colour two | 5. Whilst colour two is tacky, gently peel sellotape off | 6. Leave colour two to dry completely | 7. Place sellotape the other way across the nail | 8. Paint over the exposed nail with colour three | 9. Whilst colour three is tacky, gently peel sellotape off | 10. Leave colour three to fully dry
