Nails of the day!

Just a qwick little post today. Ive only just got home from work and my throat feels like im swallowing razorblades but i HAD to show you my nails, because if truth be told, im pretty proud of them.
I used...
(Sorry for my shocking paint skills, i hope this is clear enough). While im here can i just express my love for these AMAZING glitter nail files! Small things please small minds, so they say.

Heres my finished look...
(Sorry im holding the eyeliner, took this picture for twitter and this is the clearest picture of the nails!)

How i did it...
Firstly i used the nail files to file my nails to desired shape. Then used the base coat to stop staining and to give a smoother base for my colours.
Then i used Pink Friday from the Nicki Minaj OPI collection and applied 2 coats to each nails and left to dry.
Once dry, i used Fly (also from the Nicki Minaj OPI collection) and very carefully used the small brush to sweep a diagional tip from each side, to create a zig-zag kind of impression. Overlap the diagional tip to create look. Doesnt have to be amazingly neat, we can sort that out later.
Left to completly dry and use your MUA felt tip eyeliner (can be any eyeliner, but this is so easy to use as its like a pen) and cover any mistakes and to create a even line.
Leave to completly dry. Then add a layer of top coat. I use Look Beauty Nail Pop (this stuff is amazing!). I did the top coat before the white dots as i did one nail white dots before top coat and it smeared all over my nail. Not cool.
Once top coat is dry, carefully use the white nail art pen and place dots along the eyeliner line. (you can use any colour, i just used white because its what i had).
Leave it to dry for a couple hours then apply top coat to the whole thing.
If you have any questions please comment me!

Hope you like and hope you start experimenting with your polishes with this design! MUA have told me that Shades 9 and 16 work a treat together. Hope you like.
