Simple Fall Aztec Nail Art



Hey everyone! It's pretty late, but I figured I'd get this blog post up since the matching tutorial was just uploaded to YouTube this evening. I wanted to do something simple on my nails for fall and I wanted some glitter. So, this is what happened. I'm pretty satisfied with it. It's kind of like a super simple, minimalistic Aztec style. I think this would look awesome with any color combination really. I also have some other ideas for this... but I'll keep them a secret until I actually do them. Muahaha. The suspense!


The base polish is China Glaze I Herd That. It's a perfect glitter for fall. TONS of sparkle with only two coats. Yes, full coverage in two coats. You read that correctly. It's amazing. The accent color that I used for the steps is China Glaze Kalahari Kiss. A lot of people hate this color, but I love it. I think it's the perfect yellowish polish for fall. It may not be the prettiest on it's own, but paired with other fall colors, it's perfect. I used some striping tape to section off the yellow part. You can easily use scotch tape as well. It would actually be easier in this case. I outlined it with a small nail art brush and some black acrylic paint to make it stand out a little more. For top coat I used Out The Door.

My Boyfriend Does My Nail Art


Hey everyone! Recently my amazing boyfriend Mike wanted to do my nail art for a video. That's right... He actually agreed and wanted to do my nail art. No arm twisting... no begging. It was AWESOME! I won't lie, I was kind of scared to see how my nails were going to turn out, but he did them surprisingly well! He has never worked with nail polish before this so I'm completely impressed with his skills. He's pretty darn good for a nail art newbie! 

We laughed so hard that we were both crying and I think I laughed 10 times harder while editing the footage. He was so into it! I'm definitely a proud girlfriend! If you want a good laugh and see my extremely handsome boyfriend experience the common struggles of nail polish and nail art, then make sure to watch the video below. I can guarantee you'll laugh AT LEAST once.
