Quick Manicure with Accent Nail

Hello everyone! I'm Angela from Icing On The Face where I blog about all things beauty. I share product reviews and comparisons, favorites, tips and tricks, nailseverything. I know that Nik and Desirae have had quite a busy summer and because of that I want to share my favorite quick but fun nail look. This is something I love to do when I want an eye-catching and cute nail look but don't want to spend a lot of time on nail art or applying glitter meticulously. No sitting down and taking 20 minutes to think up a design and then an hour to execute (if you've ever done nail art then you already know what a time-eater it truly is).
Sally Hansen's Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips are really quick and easy to apply and have great lasting abilities. Okay, call me a cheater when it comes to nail art; I'll take it. They're fool-proof and there's no drying time! I don't always have the time or patience, does that mean I have to forfeit the cute designs? Just let me cheat, alright?

Whenever I use any nail polish strips I always save what is left for a rainy day (they all come with extras). Just make sure you put them in a ziplock bag so that they will not dry out. When I'm in a hurry, I just add my leftover nail strips to one nail and paint the rest a pretty color. For this look, I chose Essie's First Timer which I am loving for summer and as a contrast to the black and white of the Tri-bal It On nail strip by Sally Hansen. If you want more tips for making the leftovers really work, check out my post Making Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips Go Farther.

Please share if you recreate this! Hope you enjoyed!
