GUEST POST- Stefanie of Fairly Charming

Hiyah there lovelies! Today, Stefanie of Fairly Charming is helping us get over the HUMP! Stefanie is one of my fellow Proud Beauty Bloggers of Color and I am excited to have her here with us today! She creates some really fun nail art designs and I am loving what she has in store for us! Take a look...

Hello there! My name is Stef and I am the creative force behind "Fairly Charming".  Tiffany so graciously asked me to put together a guest post for her while she's away and I just couldn't say yes fast enough!  Thank you so much for this opportunity Tiffany and congratulations on your 1 year bloggiversary :D The mani I thought I'd share with you today is a fun skittle mani I did which showcases KBShimmer's "Blinded by the Bright"...
 Colors Used: KBShimmer - Blinded by the Bright and Eclipse, Daisy Nail Lacquer - White Diamond, Painted Polish - Drunk on Holo
With most of my skittle manis I start with a white or light base and build up my "glittery nail" (there just has to be one haha).  Once my base has set I start building up my design.  I started with my ring finger which got half black and half neon cheetah print.  While it was still went I placed my line of square studs.  Next I painted 2 coats of Blinded by the Bright on my middle finger and added a black stud.  Lastly I took a striping brush and went to work alternating the yellow and black polishes (I wish I had better advice than this, but the secret to stripes... practice, practice, practice!).
All in all a kind of "edgy" look while still being cute and wearable :)

Thank you so much for taking a look-see at my post!  I hope you all have a fabulous day...
Catch you later.
Stef <3
