Steady hand not required!
As promised I am trying designs with less precision involved because, well, I’m not precise.
For this design you will need two colors and depending on your lust for adventure a small brush and an accent/stripper color.
Paint your nails a base color. I used Maybelline Color Show Azure Seas which I mentioned in a previous post
After your base color is completely dry take your second color and paint a strip down the center
The best thing about this is you don’t have to manipulate the brush at all. Just paint like you would paint a regular nail–make a glob at the base of your nail and stroke the brush up.
No accuracy required!
I used Sinful Colors Mint Apples
Now you can stop here or you can go on to [Step Three]
Get you favorite stripper.
I am using my Sally Hansen Silver Nail Are pen. But i didn’t want a solid line so I pumped out some of the color.
I placed the color in a .99 cent dish I picked up at Blick art store. I placed a small dab of sliver polish from the nail pen in the dish and used a smaller brush to created a broken line/polka dot type.
Now you could of course just make a solid line…that would make life easier.
Here is how mine turned out:
I got this design from a much more developed nail blog.
