Nail Challenge Collaborative - Redo the Swoosh!


Hello, Fireflies!

Last July challenge for the NCC - and the last of the first 4 nail arts that I took pictures of.  This last gem was an attempt to recreate a 'swoosh' nail art I saw on some blog, somewhere.  Even if you saw it, you'd probably never think this was related in any way:


I decided to stay with blue, but going instead for a shiny cobalt version with Deborah Lippmann My Prerogative.

The first 'swoosh' I did with a gorgeous nudish-taupe, Deborah Lippmann Putty In Your Hands.  In Real Life, it looked like a negative space mani almost - the taupe was so skin-like! It was cool.

I made a little higlight 'swoosh' with Revlon Spirit.

It's a simple design, but I *still* can't get it to look like it does in my head, with the perfect flip at the end. Still, I think the new version looks pretty good, and I liked it.
I hope you've enjoyed this month's theme.  If you decide to go back into your pictures and re-do something - whether it be nail art, a makeup look, or even a hairdo or fashion look, I'd love to see your before/afters! Feel free to post them on my Facebook wall.
