My First Experience at Nail Art with Maybelline Colorshow Nail Enamel Bold Gold & Velvet Wine-

During high school and all the way to post graduation, I was literally famous for my drawing and handwriting skills! ( I even won a National Kalaratna Award for painting during high school) ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, even till today I think I am artistic enough to try my hand at drawing and painting! So when I first tried nail art seeking inspiration from my Sister- in law, it went out to be horrible and I simply accepted that I am not going to try again! And then I was more than happy with my matte nail paints and never bothered myself again until recently. When I spotted these two shade online, all I wanted to do with them was nail art!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I bought these and this time I act sensibly & tried doing it again! I picked up a clean toothpick and these two cute bottles!

Simple DIY Nail art-

I simply coated my nails with a base coat and applied the bold gold shade (one time) . Then as it dried in a few minutes, I took the toothpick and dipped the broader end in the Velvet wine nail nail enamel and carefully placed in on the nails without much pressure.I skipped the top coat as I was not having one at that time!

I wanted to do the same on all my nails but thought that over enthusiasm may spoil my art so just left it for the other time! I would like to thank Maitri :-*ร‚ย  as this nail art was inspired by one of her nail art idea on her Instagram account! ๐Ÿ™‚

The other one I tried another day as I surely didn’t want to ruin my first tryst! Although not that great! hehe. The second time I applied velvet wine on all my nails and coated it two times as the shade is a little sheer and two coats will give the perfect bold shade of wine!

When the nail paint dried, I did the same thing with another toothpick and made this pattern out of my mind!ร‚ย  (nothing artistic in this!). And thats it!

Iร‚ย  really liked both the shades and will be trying few more again! Also I find these nail enamels to be perfect for nail art as they are great in pigmentation. A single coat will suffice and dries pretty quickly.

I hope you like my first attempt and please bear with the not so tidy nail art! If i come up better designs I will surely show you guys! ๐Ÿ™‚
