Hello lovelies!
Hopefully you guys all had a great weekend! I spent most of mine sick in bed but I did get a chance to hang out with some friends. I’m going to be a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding this upcoming May and we picked out our dresses! I’d be lying if I said I haven’t already started thinking of some nail art to match it haha.
Anyways, onto today’s nails!

Bright nails are more fun to think about than wedding appropriate ones, so that’s what I have for you guys!

Here’s what I used:
I don’t always have the patience (or the time, let’s be real here) to paint detailed nails like I normally prefer to and I think the distressed nail art technique is perfect for times like this! For example,  I accidentally fell asleep one night at midnight before I did any of my homework and didn’t wake up till 6am. I never leave the house with bare nails but I needed something that I could do quickly while doing homework by my first class at 9:30am, so that’s how these nails were born! I think I did these in like 10-15 minutes, including drying time, and I finished all my work 😀

These nails started with two coats of Charmisa, which is a neon? has neon pigment in it? either way, it dries super quickly. I then just took each brush from the other colors and wiped off most of the polish and then ran that over my nails. The rhinestones were added with a little dab of topcoat and everything was sealed in with a layer of HK Girl.

I loved these nails so much! Sometimes simple nail art and some bright colors is all that you need. What’s your quick, go-to nail art for when you’re short on time? Let me know below!
Thanks for reading guys!

  • Thank you! (:

  • Thanks so much!!

  • Agreed!!

  • Of course I'll post them and thank you!!

  • Go make some! I felt the same way so that's why I did them haha. Thanks!

  • Thank you!

  • Haha that sounds like a great idea!!

  • Thanks!

  • Ohhh, I love glitter bombs! Thank you!

  • Thank you! I wish I liked textured polishes for that reason haha! They sound like they dry to a point where you can still do things in a decent time.

  • Haha I thought about them for like a day and then I forgot! I normally take things day by day, so I probably won't remember about them until the night before the wedding!

  • I totally forgot how quick they are! It's such a great technique for when you're in a rush!

  • Thanks!!

  • Lothwen Akira

  • Novita Erasma

    I love distressed nails! Easy, quick, and you can do no wrong! 😀

  • I hope you feel better soon and a wedding!! What fun!!! I can't wait to see what you do with your nails as I'm sure you'll post them!! I love distressed nails and you reminded me that I don't do them enough!!! Great look and I love the addition of the rhinestone!

  • Long time ago since I made distressed nails! These are so pretty!

  • Cute! I love the distressed look. It has become one of my favorites.

  • Very cute! I like quick and easy, usually I reach for a suede and speed-dry TC that sucker haha

  • The Dalai Lama’s Nails

    these are gorgeous and I love the colors you picked!

  • This mani is fantastic! I love a good quick mani – I tend to go for glitter bombs if I need something on my nails quickly.

  • These look so fantastic, the colors go so well together! For me if I need something quick I skip the nail art and go with a zoya pixie dust!

  • Wow, you're good enough if you are already thinking of a nail art for May! Knowing myself I'd probably choose something the day before the wedding :p

  • Color Me So Crazy

    I could not agree more about the quickness of the distressed look. I love the way these turned out. They look great.

  • I love distressed nails so much and these are adorable! Those colors looks awesome together!
