Yes, I’ve neglected Mani Monday for a few weeks but I’m back. For real! I haven’t done a design in a while so last week I decided to try out one of the nail art brushes I purchased on ebay. I used to do French pedicures all the time – I’ve always had a steady hand – so I decided try a French manicure. I know, super boring but perfect for weddings, proms and graduations. And, it was quick and hassle-free, EXACTLY what I’m about.
What you’ll need:
1. Neutral base color – Any color will do. I used an essie polish I’ve had for years but don’t really like to wear on its own.2. White nail polish – I won this one from Milani.3. Nail art brush with super thin tip – I bought mine from ebay.
4. Patience. Take your time. If you don’t get it straight the first few times try again. I would also recommend practicing on a sheet of paper. Focus as much as you can on polishing only the tip of the nail. Run the brush as close to the edge of your nail as possible. If you mess up, quickly wipe the white polish off. Your base should be dry so don’t worry about disturbing it.
One thing I’ve always hated (a little) about nail art is that in addition to your nail polish you have to buy a ton of different colors for the actual designs. But, what I like about this brush is that you can create so many different looks with just this brush and the polishes you already own.
What do you think? Do you create your own nail designs? What mani are you rocking today?
