Recently The Spoon Sisters sent me this Nail Art Pen & Polishes Set, so I invited my friend and fashion pal Sydne over for a nail art party yesterday. We had a grand girly time painting our nails and eating the three Cs of lady food: cheese, cupcakes, cocktails.
Here are a few pics in case you’d like to throw a little nail art party of your own…
The goods. I gathered all of my nail polishes and nail art pens and put them in pretty silver dishes to glam up the girly afternoon.
To fuel inspiration, I made Peach & Burrata Bruschetta and put out a spread of cheeses, crackers, apples, nuts, and of course, mini cupcakes. (It’s dangeous — but also very convenient — to be walking distance from a Whole Foods.) We channeled our inner Real Housewives and sipped apple martinis and chardonnay.
Sydne painted these darling confetti nails by painitng a white basecoat and then polka dotting her nails with every color from the nail art kit.
We dubbed them party nails.
I opted for neon pink with green polka dots.
The nail art kit is pretty genius in that one bottle contains the traditional paint and brush, but if you pop off the top, there’s a nail art pen which makes not only making polka dots easy, but painting on stripes too (like I did a few days ago).
Here’s the nail art kit if you’d like to get one (it makes it really easy and the colors are super vibrant, only take one coat and dry really fast – a win, win, win in my book!).
