Hello!

Look who’s back again! Me!

It’s time for my 31DC post, so let’s get to it! Brownie points to anyone that can guess what song I was inspired by (:

Here’s what I used:

halsey-sunset-holo-drip-nail-art-bottle-shot

Did anyone guess? Maybe? Possibly? Probably not…Eh, anyways, these nails were inspired by the song Colors by Halsey! Mainly the lyric, “you’re dripping like a saturated sunrise.” If you’re looking for new music, I highly recommend her debut album, Badlands. It’s seriously the only cd I’ve been listening to during my commute to work since it came out in August, I love it so much haha!

  1. Start with two coats of Darcy.
  2. Then using the fluffy brush and other polishes, dry brush on your gradient. I learned this technique from Cotton Coney’s instagram!
  3. Add a layer of Fairy Godmother (previously reviewed here.)
  4. Apply a layer of Glossy Glam.
  5. Once that’s dry, paint on the drip pattern with liquid latex (I put the wrong brush in this photo, because I don’t recommend using a nice brush for this. I haven’t been able to get the stuff out bristles.)
  6. Then apply a layer a Genevieve.
  7. Peel off the latex.
  8. Clean up.
  9. Add another layer of Glossy Glam.

Aren’t these so cool? I’m actually really happy with how these turned out! I’ve been meaning to see if I could use the liquid latex to create designs, and it works as long as you don’t put it over lighter colors without topcoat. Yay!
