The Blob

I like to fancy myself a nail artiste, but the truth is that I’m too impatient (and too shaky handed) to come up with anything intricate.

That’s why I was excited when I came up with this blob mani. No specific lines to follow – that’s my kind of mani. I used neon colors since I’ve been admiring so many manicures in bright shades out there right now.

The trick to this was to start with a white base. That way all the colors appeared more opaque, and I only had to use one coat of everything. Then I just dabbed away with each individual shade (I started with yellow, then added orange, blue, and pink). I had no rhyme or reason for placing colors anywhere – and that’s exactly what I was hoping for!

I think this DIY spa treatment is also in order, after logging so many hours in the pool lately – my hands are kind of a mess!

Have you tried any fun manicures lately? Any tips to share with the rest of us? I’d love to see your pictures!

  1. Has anyone tried Shallack? I can’t grow nails and was wondering if that would help so I can polish them this cute way!!!

    1. I haven’t tried it, but have always been curious to try because my nail polish comes off so quickly. I have heard that it’s REALLY hard to get off when you’re ready to get it off, and that it’s best to get it professionally done.
