Zoya Summer 2013 PixieDust Pinwheel Nail Art + Tutorial

PR samples
Hi there :)
Remember my last post? The one with The Zoya Summer 2013 PixieDust Swatches. This one! (All product and buying information can be found in the previous post just linked.) Well, I was so crazy about the nail art accent nails I decided to go for the whole hand! I've been wearing this for a few days now with no wear and no chips. I catch myself looking at my nails often :D

 Step 1: Cut triangle pieces of tape and arrange on clean dry nail(s)
 I like to use the ball of a dotting tool to go around the edges f the tape to make sure they are stuck on there tightly.
 Step 2: Paint in every other triangle. I used 2 coats for each. Then quickly lift tape.
 Step 3: Repeat for each nail.
 Step 4: I used a nail art brush to paint and fill in the empty triangles. PixieDust is remarkably cooperative and easy to work with :)

 The finished product.
 I believe Zoya is notoriously good at putting out whole collections that look great together, making them a perfect choice for nail art.
I love love this look and found the nail art not as hard as you might imagine it to be to do. Did that make sense? I feel like this looks harder than it was to make.

Been a long day, be well and take care!
