Confetti nail art inspired by the BBE

I entered a blogging competition to win a foreign exchange blogging trip. Blogging is a big hobby of mine (I have 4 blogs!) and this would be a great opportunity. When I saw the logo of the Big Blog Exchange, I wanted to do a nail art design with the bold colors they feature in the logo. For this design, I took the colors and the general idea of the pixelated look they use in the logo, and made a version of confetti nail art.

If you want to vote for me to help me get a chance to win the trip, please take 4 minutes to go to my BBE profile, enter your email, use the link in the email to confirm your vote (or it won’t count). Also, let me know in the comments of this post if you vote, so I can thank you!

BBE Confetti Final

What I used:

BBE Confetti Supplies

  • base coat (not shown)
  • white polish (unnamed, no number) by Kiss Colors (part of French Mani kit)
  • scissors
  • colored paper (or confetti)
  • quick dry top coat (not shown)

What I did:

Step 1: Choose your confetti or cut your own using thin strips of colored paper or foil, then cutting them into little squares. I used strips in each color so that I would have about the same proportions of each color in the mixture as they have in the logo.

Step 2: Base coat. 2-3 coats of white polish until opaque.

Step 3: When still tacky (or, if you waited too long, just add a layer of top coat) add confetti to the nail until you have the amount you want on each. Top coat and done!
