I did a few (haha, understatement!) other designs with my piCture pOlish shades, trying to find something that was me, while attempting the “Best Nail Art You’ve Ever Done” (pressure, much?)
If you haven’t already, please head over and vote for your favorite mani on the piCture pOlish Pinterest board! I would love to win the prize, a collaboration shade between PP and yours truly!
I began by cutting off tons of striping tape into small strips about one inch long. I painted by nail nude and allowed it to completely dry.
Some people apply the polish directly to their makeup wedge sponge (cosmetic wedges, I get mine at the drugstore), some people prefer to blend the polish on a surface first and dab the sponge onto it.
At first, you won’t have full coverage from the sponge, but allow a few seconds of dry time, and sponge again, and again. Be sure to keep your center line, where the two colors meet, right about in the middle. I wanted my polish to blend together around the middle of my nail bed, so i blended up and down just a bit.
I used a teeny brush to create the flowers by staggering small ‘C’ shaped curves from the inside of each flower out. The spiked studs are the same ones I used here yesterday. I used a dotting tool from eBay for the dots on my thumb. Obviously, wait a bit before using a thick topcoat so you don’t drag your beautiful nail art around!
