So as I have been playing around with Nail Art for the last year and a bit I told myself that I have not done enough! I always do things then hate it and refuse to post my work, so on Tuesday evening I told myself I had to try 2 different things and no matter my feelings I had to post the images online. And so I decided that I really wanted to do “Tribal” Nail Art as my first one.
I realized that because I have spent the last 3 months swatching and not practicing I have lost all progress I had made in the steady hand department when it comes to using Nail Art Brushes… Not good!
So below see my attempt at Tribal…
As my Base Colour I used: Colour & Go- “142 Grey-T To Be Here” by Essence
And then the Pink: Colour & Go ” 106 Free Hugs” by Essence
Blue: Colour & Go ” 146 That’s What I Mint!” by Essence
Yellow: Colour & Go ” 137 Wanna Be Your Sunshine” by Essence
Black: Rolfes Black Acrylic Colour
And Colour & Go ” 101 Absolute Pure” by Essence.
So as you can see, I need to work on steadying my hand… I must practice more, so expect more nail art regularly!!!
The Second Nail Art concept I wanted to try was the “Dream Catcher Nails”. This is a very simple one and pretty easy to accomplish without too much concentration.
So below see my attempt at “Dream Catcher Nails”…
For the Base Colour I used: Inglot 696
The Dream Catcher: Rolfes Black & White Acrylic Colours and for the beads: Colour & Go ” 106 Free Hugs” by Essence.
I did not use a top coat/gloss coat for this one, I liked the almost “matt-finish” it gave off.
So that is what I got up to this week, I will try out some new things again this weekend… Im thinking maybe “Skittles” 🙂
