I’m a big fan of nail art techniques that are quick and easy, because I often find myself throwing a mani on at the last minute. As I have mentioned before, dry brushing is one of my favorite fast techniques and adding a symmetrical stamp totally makes these shine.
I started out this mani with two coats of KBShimmer – In Bare Form which is an absolutely gorgeous nude holographic with an unbelievable formula. Without waiting for it to dry, I went ahead and started my dry brushing. You don’t need any special tools for this technique, just wipte your polish brush on the edge of the bottle until you have gotten almost all of the polish off of it.
I used Wet n Wild – Burgundy Frost and Tropez Super PEarl – Sunset Pearl for my dry brushing and just gave a few light swipes to each nail.
I let everything dry for about 10 minutes, then I stamped all of my nails with M Polish – Elizabethan using Born Pretty Store plate BP-L 005. Each nail got a coat of Seche Vite to shine them up and aid in drying time.

I did these nails last week while waiting for the new M Polish collection to go on sale and now I want to do something similar with my new holographic stamping polishes! I love the randomness of the dry brushing tempered by the clean stamping – though the more I look at it, the more Spring-y it looks 🙂
