This week I wanted to make something extremely simple – yes that’s possible! You know when you want to do something, but feel so busy, too tired and out of energy. But, know that certain things just should be done. Doing my nails this week resulted in just that. As someone that lives with chronic pain, things can easily slip by, so it’s essential that I try to motivate myself in finding ways to get things done for myself as easily and efficient as possible. Because as they say, it’s the small things.
The red nail polish in this look is so vibrant and the gold makes it look so fancy! It can even be recreated for a holiday party, work gathering, festivity or celebration.

Nail Polish Used: I used the color ‘Really Red’ but this is the next best thing Essie Russian Roulette (bright red) and Good As Gold (gold)
Nail Tools Used: Nail Brush + Dotter for cleaning the sides of the nails and dotter for making dots on all nails.
Step One: 1 Coat of ‘Seche’ Base Coat
Step Two: 2 Coats of the red nail polish (three strokes per coat on each nail)
…. Allow the nail polish to completely dry before doing any nail art ….
Step Three: Using a piece of aluminum foil, place a bit of the ‘Good As God’ Nail Polish on it, dip the dotting tool and create a few dots just on the side of the nail – wipe the dotter clean by dipping it in acetone after each use, going in a zig zag like pattern, continue to create the dots
…. Allow the dots to completely dry before applying the top coat ….
Step Four: 1 Coat of ‘Out The Door’ Top Coat
This is optional ….
‘Cuccio’ Cuticle Oil – Milk & Honey – it helps keep your cuticles moisturized, cuticle oil will avoid your cuticles from drying, this can happen from the use of nail acetone.
