Hey guys! Happy Friday! Hope you all had a wonderful week and an even better weekend planned. Today, I have a design to share that was inspired by NikkieTutorial’s Ariana Grande Break Free look. I laughed at her #GoldDotStud hashtag and decided try something based off Nikkie’s look.
Kinda crazy, right? It took me quite a few tries on various things to get the design to turn out like I planned, and I still would do some changes. But anyway. I started with a subtle pink-to-nude gradient using OPI Sweet Heart and Essie Brooch the Subject. I did an angled French tip with Essie Licorice to emulate the winged eyeliner, then popped on the GoldDotStuds that sparked this entire design.
For the pink, I tried so many different things. Loose glitter would have been the best bet, but that is something I still need to acquire. So instead, I went through all of my pinks and all of my glitters and found that I don’t own a pink glitter. Which makes sense — I don’t wear pink. But in the case, I was slightly frustrated because it was the focal point of the entire look.
I settled on using OPI Hey Baby and topping it with Essie Shine of the Times. Normally, I put SotT over browns to emulate fall, but I love the way it reflected off the pink. Definitely something I’ll have to try again.
What do you guys think? The studs unfortunately didn’t last too long on my fingers — I lost all but two by the end of the day, but it was a fun thing to try out. Have a wonderful weekend!
