Eyeshadow Nail Art - Super Easy!

Pin It Today I have something cool for ya guys! Nail art with eyeshadow! I'm not sure if anyone has heard of this before, the first time I've heard anything about was last week on someone's Instagram. Soooo I decided to give it a shot myself!

I think it looks pretty cool! More detailed pictures and the how to after the jump!

So I broke this down into 3 easy steps with pictures, the Instagram directions were kind of confusing to me as text so I'm showing it to you guys this way!

[STEP 1] Paint a coat of polish on your nail
[STEP 2] Paint the 2nd coat, IMMEDIATELY after you
 paint it (I suggest do one nail at a time) place some eyeshadow
on the base of your finger. Then, point your finger downward
and blow downward toward the tip of your nail.
[STEP 3] Apply your top coat and TAH DAHHH! :]

I used Sinful Colors Grecian Sun as my polish and this is the eyeshadow I used. I've seen it at Rite Aid for like $3+ but I ALWAYS see it at the Dollar Tree. They have tons of colors, I have it in black and I'm thinking of going to get more for this nail art! Plus, I never trust myself with pricey cosmetics when doing my make up since I suck at it hahaaaaaha

What do you think? Have you heard of this technique before? It was toooooooooooootally new to me! I like the effect that it gives AND that it is quick and easy to do :] I can't wait to try different combos!

Until tomorrow,
