Yessir, yet another guest post! This one is from Linda from Copy That, Copy Cat!

Greetings from Australia! I’d like to thank Briana for welcoming me to her blog :)
Today I will be showing you a mani that I love and would be perfect for Valentines Day coming up soon! I don’t have any step by step pictures or a tutorial as such, but I can definitely give you a rundown of the steps to create this look.

The products I used for this mani include:
-        -  Orly Strengthening & Repairing base coat
-         - Sally Hansen I Do (base colour)
-          -OPI Teenage Dream (1st French layer)
-          -China Glaze Pom Pom (2nd French layer)
-          -Art Club Striper in White (Lace)
-          -Art Club Silver  Glitter (Centre of lace)
-          -SecheVite Dry Fast top coat

1.       1.  First paint your nail with your favourite base coat and allow to dry.
2.       2. Next paint your nails with a sheer nude or pinkish polish. I’ve used Sally Hansen’s I Do.  (This step is optional)
3.       3. Using Teenage Dream, paint down to about halfway of your nail and let that dry.
4.       4. Now using Pom Pom, paint down a quarter of your nail and leave it to dry
5.       5. Using the white striper polish, paint 2 parallel diagonal likes from the side of your nail to the free edge of your nail. After, paint half circles along the outer parts of those lines. Add small dots or very short lines around those half circles.
6.       6. Using the silver glitter striper, add some glitter to the centre of the 2 lines.
7.       7. Finish off with a top coat to seal your design & you’re done!
I hope the tutorial was easy to follow and that you like these simple and chic nails :) Thanks again to Briana for featuring me on her blog. Keep up the good work on your blog, you are welcome on mine anytime :)
