Super Simple Nail Art | Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer + Vapid Lacquer

We all have those days. You're wearing a perfectly fine manicure that you aren't ready to remove...but you're bored. Maybe this doesn't happen to non lacquerheads? It happens to me often, and I have collected quite a few tricks to refresh my nails. One of my favorite ways to to just grab the shiniest thing I can reach, and paint a corner. Bonus points if that shiny thing is holo!

I had the epic, rich, metallic teal on...and I just couldn't part with it. So out came my little bottle of Cryogenic Refrigerant and I got to work. At first, I just painted the corners. It needed more, though. I broke out the dotting tool and added a few dots opposite. Simple, quick, and sparkly.

When in doubt, add more shiny.

I love stuff like this because it is open to all skill levels. You don't need special tools, just patience. If you aren't especially steady-handed, then a little bit of cello-tape will do the same job. It really is a very user friendly technique. A straight pin will take the place of a dotting tool...I'm telling you guys, easy peasy!

Do you have a go-to for quick manicures?

  2. My go to quick and easy nail art is dotticures. And Cryogenic Refrigerant looks super opaque - I'm trying to remember if I ordered that during the restock? I know I picked up a few you and shown before in a blog post - Blackened Amethyst I know for sure!

  5. I love this! Something about it, probably the cooler tones, is very icy and wintery to me.

  10. This is a really cute look! I recently took this BEGL out and forgot how gorgeous it is in person, I can't wait to use it! My favorite quick nail art is the dry brush technique, it takes like no time at all.
