NOTD: Spring Strings

5 years ago

I saw a post by Lindsey at neverland nail blog showing a fantastic manicure of perfectly imperfect strings/stripes. It was beautiful and I just had to try my hand. Basically, you dot out some nail polish, wait for it to get goopy, and take a tooth pick or dotting tool into it and spin the strings across the nails. Its easy and super fun to do. I`m pleased with the colors and such that I chose, but once I got my top coat on I saw that it left a ton of bubbles behind. :-( Granted, the bubbles are far more significant in close up photos, but I was still bummed. You really don`t notice them in person. I was going to blame the bubbles on a pocket of air I just removed from my Seche Vite, but after rereading Lindsey`s post, she had them too... so I`m wondering if the tiny ridges between each string had something to do with creating the bubbles. I normally don`t have bubbles with my Seche. I think I am going to try this technique again, but with different colors, and see if I get the bubbles again.
WHAT I HAVE ON: 1 coat of Milani Smoothe Base Coat 2 coats of Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac Sinful Colors Beautiful Girl for strings at base of nail Sinful Colors Unicorn for strings in middle of nail Sinful Colors Snow Me White for strings at tip of nail 1 coat of Seche Vite
