After playing around with Konad I decided to delve into other areas of nail art. I decided to try to use striping brushes and dotting tools to create my own flowers, fluid lines and polka dot mania
This is one of my personal favorites. Its so vibrant and it was soooo easy. The base color I used was OPI Lady In Black. Using the dotting tool I created the multi colored polka dots. Colors used- white: OPI Alpine Snow, blue: OPI Whats With The Cattitude, pink: Feelin Hot-Hot-Hoy. Top coated with Seche Vite for high gloss definition.
More polka dotted fun. Adding dots within dots creates an awesome effect. Colors used Silver: OPI DS Radiance, Black: OPI Lady In Black, White: OPI Alpine Snow.
A little bit of flowers, dots and stripes (colors used in this mani were mentioned above)
I tried to make a little patch of flowers on my nails in this one. As you can see my nail beds are rather short so I only manged to get 4 flowers on my thumb and ring finger ( my nails are much longer and stronger now :D) For the background I did two coats of yellow (OPI The It Color) then made a side sweep tip in orange, 2 coats (OPI Flit A Bit). Top coated with Seche Vite.
This is the first mani I did on someone elses hands! Same technique as above. Colors used Black: OPI Lady In Black, Gray: Skull and Gloss Bones, Yellow: Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow nr. 27, Dark Green: OPI Jade Is The New Black.
