Army Nails

Hi everyone, I have an exam tomorrow, which I haven't finished preparing for so just a quick update today.

Yesterday, I stumbled onto this youtube tutorial on Army Camo nails and liked it so much that I decided to give it a try. It may also be because I had to skip halloween and stay in to study that I decided to dress up my nails to celebrate instead.

Anyway, on to the result!

I used 2 coats of Essie Sew Psyched as the base color. I then used a dotting tool to draw on the black.

Then, using the same technique with the dotting tool, I drew on random patterns using Essie Merino Cool and Chinchilly for the other colors. Part of the reason why I decided to do army nails is because of these colors that I was wearing previously.

Finally, I topped everything off with 1 coat of Essie Matte About You to achieve that matte look that is more suitable for the army theme. Clearly, I did not wait long enough for the polish to dry because I smeared some of the black.

The smudges really annoy me but I don't have the time to try to perfect it so I'm forced to live with it.

So here is the finished product. I hope you enjoyed this manicure. Thanks for reading! ❤
