Nails of the Week: Chanel Drip

I kept seeing the below image floating around on Tumblr and was SO SO inspired! I had to try it out for myself, thankfully it was fairly easy, considering how I’ve become a sort of (self proclaimed) nail drip expert.

I started with a basic base coat, slightly whiter than the inspired image. I used Sally Hansen Hard Nails Xtreme Wear in ‘Bamboo Shoot”. Then, using the same drip technique I used here and here, I created my drips on most of my fingers, saving my pinky for the interlocking C’s, using Esse’s ‘Licorice’.

I then used my bobby pin and verrrry carefully drew in my C’s. Sadly, my left hand isn’t as sturdy as my right so when it came time to do it on my right hand it came out so horribly I had no choice but to paint the whole nail black. I topped each nail off with a top coat of N.Y.C.’s Nail Glossies in #201. Anyway, simple yet edgy chic. Ya dig!??
