NOTD: Diva Inspired

This NOTD was inspired by Danielle over at The Diva's Polish, who got her inspiration from this youtube tutorial by The Queen Eileen. I decided to go with a little bit of a stronger blue than either of them used, China Glaze Sky High Top from the Custom Kicks collection. Nail art required a liner brush & a dotting tool & I used Misa Dying Love. I am loving this mani:

And actually super-easy to do. I forgot to take some pics of my right hand but it looks just as nice even though I had to do the nail art with my "off" hand. Really, if you have a hand steady enough to do a normal manicure, your hand is steady enough to do simple nail art like this - a couple of really simple moves for an awesome final product.

Thanks for reading =)



  1. looks great! i really like the blue you chose :) this nail are is super cute and fun IMO too!

  2. I love how you did this nail art. gorgeous blue and accurate and delicate stripes :-) maybe I'll try it too - even though my nails are much shorter.
    also congrats on all the new hauls :-) can't wait to see some swatches...
