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.
Advanced stamping is one of those techniques that I have been in awe of for years, but for multiple reasons I had not managed to conquer it. My main problem was that I was trying to place dried decals on my nails and could never get them to lay down nicely because my nails curve quite a bit from side-to-side as well as front-to-back. I finally found the way to do it that works best for me and I am super pleased with the results!
I know I have mentioned it before but I really love dry-brush. It is one of my go-to techniques, especially when I am in a hurry. With that said, I present another one of my dry-brush designs 🙂
I have a number of polishes that I consider “must-haves”. Polishes that flesh out my collection and fill essential spots in color, formula or effect. Over the next couple of months I plan to post reviews and swatches of them because I really feel these polishes are beyond worth it! The first in this series is called Pigment of my Imagination by indie polish brand KBShimmer.
Now that the awkward “I’m here” post is out of the way, I am ready to dive right in. I’ve been doing #nailartsep challenge by Californails this month – I’ve seen people doing these challenges in the past, of course, but this is the first time I have participated! The great thing about these challenges is that it forces you to get creative and, if you are a novice like me, introduces you to new techniques and styles that you may not have thought about previously. Luckily, this one also coincided with my BHB Thursday challenge, so two birds, one mani.
