Hello lovelies! This week is going to be another catch up week, but hopefully you guys are ready for a ton of nail art. I have some fun looks ready for you, so I think you’ll all be happy! Anyways, I missed last week’s 26 Great Nail Art Ideas Challenge post (on a serious note though, I’ve been late every week did you really think this one would be any different?) But the group tackled manicures using black bases, so here is mine!
Here is what I used:
I totally lost my train of thought in the middle of writing this haha. Ah crap. I guess this is pay back for taking another sick day from work. Meh, I do remember that the inspiration for this look came from this sweater that is linking to TF Knitwear? I’m not sure if that’s the original source…
- Start by applying two coats of Challenger Deep (previously reviewed here.)
- Add a layer of Biomimicry over that (previously reviewed here.)
- Finish the base with a layer of Hello Daleks.
- Once the base is dry, use acrylic paint and a detail brush to paint on the squiggles.
- Clean up.
- Finish with a layer of Glossy Glam.
And that’s that! What do you guys think? I liked being able to use Hello Dalek, since it’s been sitting in my Helmer unloved for a very long time. But, I really loved that the glitters kind of gave me a guideline of where to paint the squiggles! Are you a fan of wearing black nails? Make sure to leave me a comment down below with your thoughts.
Thank you guys so, so much for reading and check back later for more<3
