I was looking for beauty tips on Lauren Conrad's The Beauty Department as came across this great nail art tutorial. I like the fact that you only need two nail polishes and hardly any fancy nail art equipment.
Also, as a complete geology nerd, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to have a rock inspired nail art, could I? Turquoise is a semi-precious gemstone that gave the colour 'turquoise' it's name. It sometime has these cute golden veins running through it, which is captured into this nail tutorial/
|I used a bluey/gold polish and a gold polish from H&M (both £2.99)|
|1) Paint on the blue polish a base coat and then leave to dry. I then used the ELF matte finisher to reduce the shine of the polish.|
2) Grab a piece of plastic or some cotton wool and dab on some of the gold polish.
