Step Into Summer Challenge - 3D

Friday, June 14, 2013

Good morning! For today's post, I'm doing a 3D manicure for the Step Into Summer Challenge hosted by the Hobby Polish Bloggers. I was a little stuck on what to do since I don't have any nail art decorations that would make my manicure look 3D. Then I remembered a video from MissJenFABULOUS on making a 3D polka dot manicure so I decided to recreate that. Let's see how it turned out!

For my base color, I used Spoiled by Wet n' Wild Plastic Flamingo. Taking American Apparel Hassid, I dotted on dots with my dotting tool. After letting that dry, I took Sally Hansen White On and dotted dots on top of the black dots but a little off of the side so the black was still peaking through. This creates a shadow effect making the dots seem 3D on the nails.

It turned out really cute and it was so easy to do!! Definitely something I would rock with different colors too. What do you think of my 3D manicure?

  1. Oh that is so clever, I don't have any 3D decorations either and have been wondering on how to work around that. This pink is so nice and the 3D effects are brilliant!!
