manic MANI MONDAY: 90's T-SHIRT NAILS

DSC_0540-1
I call these 90's t-shirt nails because that is what they remind me of. "Lisa Frank Nails" was in the talk too, I guess either of the names work. Casey bought me a whole nail stamping set with tons of plates and it's taken me a while to do a tutorial with them. That is because they are kind of hard to get used to. I definitely took Elizabeth's advice while creating these nails. Check out her tutorial to learn to use a stamper.

These are the nail polishes I used for this tutorial:
Clear Top Coat- NYC Quick Drying
Neon Pink- Ultra Pro Punki Pink
Nude- American Apparel Palm Springs
Turquoise- Color Club Age of Aquarius
Light Blue- JULEP Jessica

This is the plate I used to stamp with- BM10.

Paint your nails light blue.

Stamp the triangle design in hot pink polish on the bottom half of the nail. When stamping, you may get some of the design on your finger and you can just clean that up at the end. Some of the design may not actually go onto your nail and when that happened, I just kept it. Every nail will not turn out the same and it's totally fine that way.

Stamp the nude polish in the middle of the nail.

Stamp the turquoise polish on the top half of the nail.

Cover your nails with a top coat. Be careful on this step- you want to make sure the designs are completely dry to make sure they don't smear into eachother.
