15-minute Semiformal Nails

Saturday, December 19, 2015


It's crazy, I haven't posted since October :( Life has been filled with schoolwork, and I've been super busy with a new school and a lot of new friends. 

For a while, I wasn't really feeling nail art, either -- it just seemed so much less important than going to grab food with friends or getting a head start on my American Studies essay. But I've come to miss it, so here I am with a super quick design.

The story behind these is kinda funny. I ordered a dress for our school's winter semiformal dance, but it didn't come in time (SMH @ Tobi) so I ended up running around trying to find another dress to wear. I ended up borrowing one from a dear friend, but at that point I had like thirty minutes to get ready and I still had to do my nails. Most nail art is super time-intensive, but I managed to do this design in about 15 minutes.

Polishes Used:
Nails Inc Kings Road (or something, I forget) | Wet n Wild Black Créme 

It's super simple, just a black background and some gold dry brushing! Quick, but elegant.

And for your viewing pleasure here's a silly candid of me and my date :))

I promise I will try to post more often -- I hope you guys are doing well! I'll probably be creeping on your blogs shortly to catch up with the nail art world.

Thanks for reading!!
