One of my favorite lip balms inspired me to do a nail art design. As strange as it may sound, I don’t have any lipsticks or colorful glosses. I like natural look and when I wear makeup I just stick to mascara, eye liner and a sheer lip gloss. Occasionally I like to do smokey eyes when going out, again with natural lips. So as you see, I prefer to put an accent on my eyes, rather than lips.
Still, I like my lips to look smooth and well taken care of. Hemp Lip Protector by The Body Shop is a great product to keep them moisturized and healthy. Hence the nail design:
That’s me – no lipsticks, no bright glosses, but a lot of lip balms :) I have them everywhere – at home, in the car, and even in every purse. Some of them are cheap, some are priced well. Hemp Lip Protector belongs to the group of lip balms that I would buy again. It’s perfect for cold months and of course for the soon coming winter.
Anyway, the blog is about nail polishes and designs, so let me tell you more about the nail design:
First, I painted my nails light green, and waited for the base color to dry. After that I painted my tips brown using a regular nail polish brush. The textile background and hemp leaves were hand painted using polishes (dark green and yellow) and a detailing nail art brush.
For the design I needed:
- Pale green base color – Essie Navigate Her, 2 coats
- Brown tips – Orly Chocoholic 48447
- Light yellow color for textile background – Orly Lemonade
- Dark green for hemp leaves – IsaDora In the Army
- Clear top coat
Well, I hope you liked it :) And a tiny warning just in case – please, don’t take this design too serious ;)
Thank you for stopping by! xxx
