Recently I was searching for a new nail art brush since none of mine seem to be quite small enough. I ended up stumbling upon stylishnailart on instagram and found that she sells like a million tiny brushes. So I perused her brushes and settled on one and ordered it! To my surprise it came in really quickly and I got to play around with it the other day. I was feeling pretty brave and with my new nail art brush in hand so I decided to tackle one of my big scarys: free hand stripes. I've always admired those talented bloggers who are so good at making free hand stripes... it seemed like whenever I tried they went anywhere but straight. -_-
But! Since my skills have improved and I got the right equipment I was actually successful this time! They aren't perfect but they are definitely a huge step in the right direction!
I started with a base of Lime Crime Parfait Day. Then I took my nail art brush and created an off-centered stripe with China Glaze Pool Party and outlined it on either side with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. I finished it off with a generous coat of Poshe top coat.
I wish I could have worn these for longer, they're real simple but they really stood out! I think that partially because Pool Party is just so darn bright!!
What do you think? Do you do free hand stripes? Have any tips for me? :)
Oh! And I also got myself a brand new light box with brand new lights can you tell the difference in my pictures??
