Organic Sunless Self Tanner Discount The secret to making your own sunless self-tanner, at home! It even works better than the popular brands, and is actually healthy for your skin!

Quick and easy nail art using matte topcoat and matte or satin nail polishes! In this video I made 3 simple designs that are easy to create, and mix matte and glossy finishes to create striking and edgy designs.
The first uses striping tape to make stripes and would be a cool alternative for the 4th of July.
The second includes showing your naked nail as part of the design, and mattifies shimmery polish which is an effect I love the look of!
The third is very easy and can be changed up depending on the colours to represent lots of different ideas like giraffe print, pebbles, scales or even a dragon’s egg!

    I just paused the video to comment something, at the beginning when you put the sparkly purple tape I would try leaving it and applying a top coat to the nail on top of the tape, it looks pretty! ❤

    I feel I must say that your health should always come first and foremost!  I hope that whatever is not so good, turns around as soon as possible!  That said … I also want to say that I LOVE your nail tutorials!!  I can't really say I have a fav in this one because I liked them all.  But the third one has to be on top due to the purple and want to try that one as soon as our July 4th has passed!  🙂  I have to say you are a huge inspiration for me and will follow you as long as you allow me to.  😉  THANKS!!

    OMG I love you for this. I was following a guru who did beginner art, but I ditched her after I heard she wasn't being ethical. I'm really glad to see this from your channel, because you're one of my go-to nail gurus!
