Purple Geometric Nails

If you read last weeks post you know that today (Monday) means.. Nail art! Apart from weekly swatches of a certain brand I don’t think I’ve ever had a regular feature on my blog. Mainly since I don’t like too much commitment as my blog is still very much a hobby and something I do for me. However I’ve created most of these nail art manicures in advance so that takes off the pressure of having to create something every week. Without further ado, let’s take a look at todays nail art!
This week I created something inspired by Japanese nail art. A purple-y geometric design with a bling-y accent nail! On all fingers I started with Essence Hattrick! as a base, my new favourite white polish. I even bought a backup! (Well.. to be precise, the boyfriend did. Isn’t he sweet? Hehe!) Then on my middle and ring finger I sponged on several colours to create a watercolor effect. I used piCture pOlish Wisteria, piCture pOlish Sky, piCture pOlish Coral Reef and China Glaze Hanging In The Balance. I then freehanded a geometric line design using my ORLY Instant Artist in Jet Black.
On my pointer finger I painted on a different geometric design using my ORLY striper and then cut off a teeny bit off my sponge to fill in two blank spaces. I added three black dots using a dotting tool to finish the design. Topcoated everything with Seche Vite for shine!
Finally on my ring finger I added some bling: 3mm silver rhinestone, purple holographic heart, 2mm round pastel purple pastel stud, gold steel balls, 2mm pearl. Everything can be found from Born Pretty Store!
Hope you like this design! Let me know in the comments below.
