It has been a long time since I have posted a nail of the day post. I tried out a little bit of free-hand geometric designs to go along with my bright summer colour. Let me know what you think!
These are the various tools that I needed to do this manicure: (The Orly top coat should be Seche Clear base coat… oops!) Sally Hansen “Poppy”, China Glaze “White On White”, Pop Beauty (no name as far as I know), and Butter London “P.D. Quick Topcoat”.
Here’s a better view of the brushes that I used. These are just cheap synthetic nail brushes that I bought on eBay. A long, skinny striping brush to make the initial lines; and a short flat topped brush as well as a short angle brush to fill in the black and white squares.
Here is the result! Please excuse that the geometric shapes aren’t all perfect like most of the photos that I see on Instagram… this was my first go, and being all artistic and good at drawing isn’t my strong point!
I hope you like this design! I was originally going to do my ring and middle fingers with the patterns, instead of the index and ring fingers. What do you think? Would you have liked that better? I think I would have. Oh well, next time!
This manicure is actually coming off right after I post this. It’s starting to chip =(. But it wore for about 4 days very well!
