The “Yellow Polka-Dotted”: Lemon Fizz Nails with Acrylic Bow and Pink Glitter Spots
I was inspired by a pretty yellow acrylic bow and decided to do matchy-matchy nails to go with the theme. (To see each image in more detail, read the full text post here.)
- For a base polish, I used a pale yellow creme, China Glaze’s Lemon Fizz.
- For pink glitter, you can simply use any translucent duochrome pink glitter like the one I have above. It shouldn’t be too small in size.
- You will also need nail glue - or super glue (same thing pretty much) - and an acrylic bow. If you can’t find a spotted yellow one, a pink one would do; it also doesn’t need to be as large as the one I used.
- IMPORTANT: If you don’t have a very fast and steady hand, topcoat won’t allow you time to slowly place the spots of glitter on. You will need either repositionable glue or nail foil glue.
- You should also have either a dotting tool or a toothpick to pick up specks of glitter with.
- [Optional] Stamping plate of your choice (I used something random from eBay that has no brand), and pink stamping polish. If you’d rather, use a nail sticker to save yourself the hassle!
- You need a clear topcoat as a final seal to lock everything in place. I used Seche Vite.
Feel free to change the color scheme around and use different combinations! (Red and white, pink and black, blue and aqua, etc.)
Repositionable glue is available from arts n crafts stores (scraperfect.com has a really good one called Best Glue Ever if you prefer to shop online; they ship internationally) Glitter will not stick well when the repositionable glue is still damp. Wait for it to dry before dotting on our glitter.
