Nail Art: Triangles & Squares
Happy Monday, sweets! Hope you had a lovely weekend. Mr T and I visited Leeds Castle on Sunday, which I tweeted about (I know, I finally started to use Twitter properly!); I’m going to share you some photos of the lovely castle tomorrow :) But before that, let me show you this week’s nail art.
- OPI / Don’t Touch My Tutu!
How to get the look:
1) Apply base coat.
2) Apply five coats of Don’t Touch My Tutu! to make gradient art (see tutorial here for gradient art how-to).
3) While the nails are still wet, place triangle and square decals (for how to make DIY decals, see tutorial here).
4) Apply a top coat.
Yap, I’m using my new ‘it’ polish, Don’t Touch My Tutu! from NYC Ballet Collection, and I’m so in love with it!
I think it’s by far the best ‘gel look’ polish I’ve ever encountered :) You could see NYC Ballet mini collection’s swatch here.
Going back to the subject of Twitter – well, where do I start? I’ve been shying away from using it other than announcing new blog post. Because… basically, I felt lost. Really lost, to the point that I couldn’t see that blue birdie eye to eye.
So, I already knew the basics for using Twitter – what I didn’t know was what I was supposed to tweet about. Would anyone really be interested in what I say? Would I just embarrass myself? I talked about these concerns with my mate the other day, and her answer was ‘stop thinking too much, and just get on with it’. Pretty much.
So, although it still feels like I’m walking around town in my knickers when pressing that ‘tweet’ button, I’m going to give it a go. And, I want to know these things from you; how long did it take for you to get the knack of it, and how often do you tweet? How many times a day do you check Twitter account? Do you feel ‘yeeees, I must tweet right now’ moment, or do you tweet anytime anyway? Do you dance when someone RT? Is there anyone who refuses to use Twitter? OK, I’m feeling so old! Please excuse me, I must go now and walk around town in my knickers…
