Hey Guys! Today I am starting a new feature on my blog which I'm calling Wal-Mart Wednesdays!
Wal-Mart Wednesdays might not be every week, but I will do them as often as I can. The whole idea behind them is to create a manicure using only things that can be found at Wal-Mart. I got a suggestion to show some nail polish using some discount polish instead of indies or higher end brands. I think that anyone should be able to have wicked nails and there is SO much great stuff available at Wal-Mart or drugstores. Everything that I use in these manicures from my basecoat to top coat and everything in between will be able to be purchased at Wal-Mart! So let's jump into the first week's nails!
I had the thought about using other kinds of make-up other than polish on my nails, and one of the first things that came to mind was using eyeliner! So I headed over to Wal-Mart and picked up a few NYC eyeliners and also went through my old makeup stash and found a bunch of colourful eyeliners that I never use. Mostly NYC and Rimmel, I'll list which ones I used below!
So I started with Essie Grow Faster my favourite base coat and then did 3 coats of Wet n Wild Break the Ice a shimmery white. I added a coat of NYC In a Minute Grand Central Station to speed up the drying process. I then started drawing lines of varying lengths with my eyeliner on my nails. I kept going across all my nails until I was happy with the opacity and the look of the lines. Then added one more coat of top coat.
I quite liked this, but I felt like it could use a little glittah. So I grabbed Wet n Wild Kalediscope just over where I had added the eyeliner. This added just the subtle bling I was looking for!
I realized when I was editing these photos that I seem to have taken all the pictures in the same hand position! Oops! lol
What do you think of eyeliner nails? Is this something that you would try out? I would advise to either purchase new eyeliners, they don't need to be expensive, the 99 cent ones will do the trick! Or if you are going to use eyeliner you already own, make sure that you don't plan on using these around your eyes again. Just a caution! I don't know what the implications would be :)
I hope you enjoyed my first Wal-Mart Wednesday post! If you have any suggestions for or ideas to add to this series send me an email (stephanie(at)sincerelystephanienails(dot)com) or tweet me (@sincerelynails). I would LOVE to hear any ideas that you have!
Hope you're having a terrific Wednesday!
