This was my favorite polish of the group and adding the nail art over the top made it like ten times better in my opinion! These nails were inspired by this oil and wax painting, at least I think you would paint with those two things…I don’t know, I’ve never tried that before….but it’s by Holger Lippmann!
I started these nails with two coats of African Violet and a layer of HK Girl. I used my thin striping brush to paint the horizontal lines on. This design was nice because the lines could be wavy so you’re given a bit of leeway with the stripes. I really liked this design and I really want to recreate it soon and wear as a full manicure!
I couldn’t decide if I wanted to pair this polish with white or black accents so I figured I would go with both to get the best of both worlds! I came across this wall covering by Kelly Wearstler and painted these fun, little jagged blobs on my nails!
Again, these started with two coats of Silver Willow. I used my small detail brush to add the little jagged white lines on and then went back in with the black to create the blob shapes. This design was really quick and simple to do and I think I want to try experimenting with this more because I think it could be interesting!
These nails started with two coats of Flor De Muerto and a layer of topcoat. I then painted the flower shape on with white acrylic paint and went back over that with Blood Roses. I was nervous about Blood Roses being opaque enough on its own so I was hoping that the acrylic paint would help with that. It doesn’t really matter though because the two polishes are so similar that you can hardly see the flowers haha!
