Kissy Nails

I once did lip design on my nails, but I never posted that manicure on the blog. So I decided to do this lip design again, but on nude base which I really enjoy these days. I got a lot of compliments on this manicure and everyone seemed to think I stamped it on, but it's actually a free hand design.

I did two coats of nude nail polish as a base. I used Sally Hansen Color Therapy Nail Polish - 180 Chai on Life.

Then I took brighter red nail polish, which was Kiko LE Arctic Holiday Nail Lacquer - 02 Breathtaking Red and a small long brush for creating stripes. I used it to draw on design of the lips. At first I thought I'll make them all the same, but then I did some bigger and some smaller to not make it look like wallpaper. 

It's hard to draw anything on with free hand, but I think it shouldn't be too perfect. After all, it's free hand, not a stamp. Mine definitely isn't all the same, but it still looked fun once it was all done. 

I also applied thicker shiny top coat which was Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. Make sure to wait for the design to completely dry and avoid smudging, but I was in a rush, so I had no choice. Some smeared a little, but it wasn't that noticeable. Oh and I also did it on my other hand. That was a struggle. 

This is definitely one of my favorite nail designs that I've done so far, because it's very simple, but makeup themed. I'm getting back into drawing on my nails, so expect more of these short manicure posts in the future.

On my lips I'm wearing Avon True Colour Perfectly Matte Lipstick in Red Supreme.
