Since I'm sure I'm not the only one who never tries their pins...I'm going to make this a linkup! So here's your warning: next Tuesday, October 16th, will be the first Try It Tuesday linkup. I will always try and give you a week heads up for the next linkup so you can choose and try a pin. Now go find something on your pin boards to try out for next week!
For my first attempt at pin recreation/inspiration, I chose a manicure that I had pinned from The PolishAholic.
This is the manicure that I was inspired to try:
I started with a base color. I chose Sally Hansen's Fuscia Power.
Then, I dotted Sinful Colors Easy Going and Wet N Wild Ebony Loves Chris on the tips. I tried to concentrate most of the dots towards the tips like the inspiration photo with only a few dots towards the nail base.
I originally read you should use a toothpick to dot, but I couldn't get a toothpick to pick up enough polish that it would leave anything on my nail. I read that there are "dotting tools" out there for this specific purpose, but I have no idea what they look like or where to find them. So, in a pinch, I just used the polish brush and ended up with some less than round dots. And I'm ok with that.
What are you going to try from Pinterest?
