Hello lovelies!
Hopefully everyone had a lovely weekend! Mine was kind of lame since I’m having more car troubles….my car is so loud, like to the point where it’s embarrassing drive but I have to go to class soooo….yeah, can’t wait to hang out at the mechanics this week!
Anyways, onto the nails!

This was the first day of the challenge that I really struggled with. I only own one metallic polish and I don’t like it so it wasn’t a very inspiring day….

Here’s what I used:
If you type in “metallic pattern” on Pinterest, you kind of get a whole of nothing….so I decided to change the colors around in this pattern to fit what I needed. The source link is funny so I can’t find out who made the original design /:

These nails started with two coats of Snake, Rattle, And Roll. The polish is a nice color but I can’t stand the brushstrokes which is the main reason why I don’t like metallic polishes. But when that was dry, I used my detail brush to paint the diamonds on in a random pattern. I then used the same brush and the black acrylic paint to add the little lines. Everything was sealed in with a layer of HK Girl.

These were cute to wear and I was able to decently recreate this on my right hand! I kind of want to start like a challenge or a tag or something of us nail bloggers and artists attempting to paint on our dominant hand. I think it’d be really fun even though I just looked down and realized that I have nail polish all over my fingers on that hand because I did a bad job cleaning up…..Uhmm, okay, so maybe scratch that!
Thanks for reading guys!
