NOTD with sponge: Glittery Monday Blues

by xin on July 12, 2010

Aloha! Another weekend has passed, and I have definitely enjoyed my weekend by tidying up my room. A very pleasant-looking result I would say. At least now I don’t walk or kick into things anymore.

I managed to paint my nail next week after some break of breathing time with my nails.

Today, I am going to share a fool-proof way to use sponge and get the perfect nails.

OPI base

First, color your nails with a base color of your choice. You can go really bold by trying out contrasting colors.

color the sponge

Take a sponge, in fact, just most of the sponge will do the trick, then put another shade of nail polish on top.

I bought my sponge from Etude House, I got them for really cheap after 40% discount.

stamp on nail

Then stamp the sponge onto your nails, do it fast before the polish dries off on the sponge.

You can also use matte color to sponge, but if you are unsure, you can always try with a glittery color first. Some may say if it is a glittery color, why do I need sponge? I have actually tried by just coloring onto my nails.  With the use of sponge, it will create a softer joint instead of a harsh blend.

And the results? I love it? Fast and almost perfect! Finish with a good top coat and the color will last you for at least a week!
