My nails and my snack! These barkTHINS were so good I had to match my nails to the bag! Even though I ate the whole bag up in less time than this manicure lasted it was still fun to do. In this post I show tell you step by step how I did this fast and easy look, and review this awesome snack.
barkTHINS Snacking Chocolate
Yesterday I wrote about an awesome company I recently discovered, Influenster. They created a place on the web where you can discover, review, and share all your favorite products. They also send out boxes of products for “Influensters” to review. I was selected to review the SunshineVoxBox, and as part of that box I received a coupon for “One on Us” for these barkTHINS snacks. My short review is below, they really are good! If you’re interested in seeing the other products I received, read the full review.
barkTHINS Dark Chocolate Pretzel with Sea Salt Review
THESE ARE SO GOOD! They are an awesome dessert made with just a few normal, everyday ingredients. They are not necessary healthy (45% fat) – but it’s chocolate and a great treat at the end of the day. They are not as thin as you might think – more like a Hershey’s bar but the chocolate is MUCH better with pieces of pretzel broken up into it and sprinkled with sea salt. I can’t wait to go out and get some more of these and try the other flavors! I was looking for a healthy end-of-day treat and this will be it for now. Find out more about barkThins and where to buy.
Here is a break down of how I achieved this high-impact, snacky-geometric nail look:
- Put down one or two coats of your favorite base coat.
- Pick your favorite blue and put on two coats. I choose one of my fav blues, Cover Girl’s Out of the Blue.
- Follow up here with a fast dry top coat so you won’t have to wait too long for your nails to dry completely.
- Using a straight guide nail vinyl or a piece of tape, lay down two to create a triangle in the middle of your nail. For added interest I lined up my two sets of nails to each other. Have your tweezers handy.
- Quickly paint two medium coats of a white textured polish between the guides to create your textured triangles. Immediately remote the tape guides using your tweezers, pulling towards the center of the design, one guide at a time.
- Done! No top coat is needed since you don’t want to smooth out the textured triangles.
Let me know if you try this out!
