Today, I tried the tri, but ended up doing the duo. No green in this mani, just blue and purple. Here's my inspiration:
One of my husband's ties! He chose a handful of his ties that he wants to see me use as inspiration, and I thought that was a grand idea!
Here's the hot mess I started with:
I used striping tape and hole reinforcers that I trimmed, over a layer of Wet 'n Wild Black Creme. Looks like spiders. Ewww.
After putting the tape down over the VERY DRY black, then I quickly painted in different sections with colors inspired by the tie. One nail at a time, please. If it dries before you get the tape off, your polish will pull off with the tape!
All done, before topcoat. I love the colors! Purple, grey, blue, silver, and black.
Like a stained glass window!
A nail art like this one really needs topcoat to bring all the layers into one, visually. Notice how all the brushstrokes are minimized, too.
Do you think it looks like the tie?
Bottle shot: Wet 'n Wild Black Creme, Sonia Kashuk Dime a Dozen and Russian Roulette, Jordana De'ja' Vu Blue, and a silver nail art striper.
I couldn't be more thrilled that my husband has taken an interest in my nail art, and even found his own ways to participate! It was so sweet, and he loved the nail art I did, too. Have you had a partner or friend help you find inspiration for your craft?
