Oh hello again!

Yesterday, I posted a review of Parallax Polish’s new Secrets of the 7 Seas collection! If you haven’t seen these polishes yet, I suggest you go take a look…like now 😛 You went and looked, right? Okay, good, now we can get onto some nail art! I’m going to keep this post in the same order as the swatches and shorter on words, because this is about to be photo heavy.

But, onto the nails!

First up is this look over Biomimicry! I’m usually not a huge fan of duochrome polishes, but the contrast between the color shifts and the white art is really making me enjoy this look. The design is inspired by this piece of African Tribal Art.

  2. Add a layer of Glossy Glam.

  4. Clean up.

Moving onto Challenger Deep!

Black and white nail art has to be one of my favorite things in the world. I really need to start wearing it more! This design was inspired by this set of steps from Robert Tatin’s Musee.

  1.  Start with two coats of Challenger Deep
  2. Paint the design on with acrylic paint and a detail brush (Pure Color #9.)
  3. Clean up.
  4. Add topcoat if you wish. I didn’t, but keep in mind that the acrylic paint will wash off with water.

Next up is Arctic Ice!

Yes, I totally painted a wood grain pattern over a polish named after ice…..I don’t make sense to myself either haha. The pattern is my recreation of one of these freebies.
