Indie Mix & Match Nails

30th June, 2014 - Posted by Emily - 15 Comments

I’ve been a bit busy with swatches lately but I promised myself to post more nail art. So from now on I’ll be sharing nail art each Monday. I’ll try to feature indies where possible too. Let’s take a look at today’s nail art!

First up is this geometric mix & match manicure. I had absolutely no clue what to name this design haha! I named my post indie mix & match nails as I featured two indie polishes. On my pointer and pinkie I used Serum No. 5 Blue Blazes as the base, and then I freehanded a geometric design using ORLY Instant Artist stripers in Jet Black and Crisp White.

On my middle finger I layered two coats of Sea Lore Arista over China Glaze Ruby Deer . On my ring finger I used Essence Hattrick!, my new favourite white, as a base, drew a horizontal stripe with my black ORLY Instant Artist striper and added a long rectangular stud which you can find in this stud wheel from Born Pretty Store.

I really love how this turned out! A bit different to what I usually do but I really enjoy the colour combination. What do you think?! Let me know in the comments.
