DIY ROCKSTAR NAIL DIP

posted by Elshane on Mar 14 2016, under Beauty

I created my own DIY nail dip and I wanted to share it with my peeps!

It all started when I had a free hour in the afternoon a few days ago and I wanted to give the Hello Kitty x OPI polishes a whirl. I grabbed the Starry Eyed (Hot Pink) and painted my nails, figuring that's where the story would end...

After I finished painting, I looked down at my nails and I just didn't feel satisfied. The color, which looked so cool in the bottle, actually gave off a bit of a dorky vibe sitting alone on my nails. However, after all of the work I just did, I didn't want to take the polish off. So I sought out a solution to "rock them out"!!!

I grabbed for the Never Have Too Mani Friends (Black) color in the same Hello Kitty x OPI kit. I knew if I offset the pink with black, my nails would instantly pop. I thought about what I could do with the black... add a black dot in the center of each nail? Do a black French tip? I settled on a half/half nail dip design because it seemed easy enough to execute.

So that's the story. I waited until the pink dried completely, then did a half paint of black from cuticle to mid-nail, directly over the pink. Finished it off with a top coat and instantly my nails transformed!
