Hey y'all! Today I have another nail art post! Recently I was inspired to do more and I'm challenging myself to do just that. When not doing swatches, I'm trying to get at least one design done a day, and it's working.
I was originally going to share my inspiration on this, but the company refused to answer my request for permission to use a stock photo from their website & would only say "we handle all advertising in house and do not offer sponsorship." EVEN after I told them multiple times that I wasn't asking for money or sponsorship. Now that that little rant is over, keep reading to see what I used....and I hope ya like. :D
I started out with my usual white base(for nail art) of Sinful Colors Snow Me White. I find it's a pretty good white & with as much as I use it, I don't want to pay a fortune...so that's even better. Once that was on, I applied a coat of Seche Vite so that I could get started on the next step without waiting forever.
Next I pulled out my cheapy little nail art brush, there's a ton of tutorials on YT on how to cut brushes down or you can purchase tiny ones online. Using Verity Deep Violet and Funky Fingers Power Play, I created random little diamond shapes with a few dots here & there. The design that inspired this kinda had a faded look to the diamonds, so I used jelly polishes to help with that. I probably could have attempted the watercolor technique, but decided against it.
I finished this off with a coat of Seche Vite. I wasn't going to TC it, but I think it helped the diamonds look a little more distressed...and I love it.
