Today I tried a new technique for nail art. I first saw this at Spektor's Nails, not sure if this is the first place this technique was seen, but it is what inspired this weeks Manicure Monday. I used small stir stick straws, mainly because the only other straws I had at home were large ones for milk shakes. They were almost the size of my nail! Think I will have to find an in between size before I try this one again.
The lineup from left to right:
wet n Wild-Metallica
Sally Hansen-Antique Frost
Sally Hansen-Gilty Pleasure
I started with three layers of Champagne Cocktail as my base. I then alternated between the three metallic colors by touching the end of the straw onto the polish brush to pick up the color. The concept is there, and I do like the colors together, but I really need a bigger straw to get the effect I was after.
