I always love doing mix & match nails and since it had been a while I went for a black/white + mint green combo. I did a leopard nail inspired by Dominique Renee, zebra with cross, mint green union flag, a stud nail and diagonal stripes.
Polishes and supplies I used to create this:
- Illamasqua Nomad
- Dearlee 034
- China Glaze Snow
- China Glaze Midnight Kiss
- It’s So Easy Strip Rite in White
- It’s So Easy Stripe Rite in Black
- China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
- Essence Studio Nails Top Sealer
- Gold 4mm Square Stud
I also wanted to show you guys this! When I do nail art I often make sketches so I have an idea of what I am going to do. If I don’t make sketches, it takes me a few hours and several tries to come up with something I often still don’t end up liking. I make mine with Adobe Ideas for the iPad. When I got it this was still a free App but it’s about €7.99 or $9.99 now which is pretty pricey! There are several free drawing Apps as well though so this one isn’t a must.
Do any of you make sketches when you are doing nail art?
