Beauty Column - Confetti Ocean

I may or may not have gone on a little ULTA nail polish shopping spree last night with Jenny...I found too many favorite colors! Since I couldn't decide on one color to paint my nails, I just used all of them. :)

Here's an easy nail DIY to party up your nails:

Step One: Paint your nails with two coats of a navy blue color. I used Midnight Cami by Essie. Let dry.
Step Two: Pick a handful of favorite colors that compliment your base color.
Step Three: Before painting on confetti, brush most of the paint off the brush and use the tip to slowly confetti the corner of your nails. Use one color with 3-4 dots on each nail at a time. Feel free to layer the confetti a bit and be sure not to have an excess amount of polish on the brush or you'll end up with a huge glob dot! Let dry.

And that's all! Mix and match your favorite colors. For a fun-fetti inspired color palette, use white as your base coat and bright colors for the confetti (red, yellow, blue, pink etc.). 

* Essie - Midnight Cami, Lapis of Luxury, Van D-GO & Borrowed & Blue purchased at ULTA $8.00 /// ORLY - Rage purchased at ULTA $3.50 /// Rings - Purchased at H&M.
