Shannons NOTM - Graffiti Nails

5 years ago

So, a while ago the lovely /member/PixiePolish posted her nail look and it totally struck me and it was something I wanted to recreate. I asked Lyndsay how exactly she did the manicure and she told me she uses a brush that she dips in acetone and brushes over the nail. So I went out and bought a pack of brushes. Unfortunately the brushes I purchased were encased in plastic and I did not get to feel if they were hard or soft until I opened them. They were stiff as a board. I dipped it in acetone and brushed it over the first nail and it looked like I raked it., leaving visible lines and I just didnt like it. For some reason I always start painting my nails late at night watching TV, so I had half my manicure set all I needed to do was run the acetone over them. Instead of getting annoyed and taking all the polish off I improvised. I used a Q-tip dipped in acetone and lightly ran it over the top colored polishes and it worked! It didnt give me as defined of a look as I hoped for, but it was cute and different. It would have been a lot better if I had a soft bristled brush which I will go to Michaels and purchase instead of just grabbing some random packaged brushes at the store in hopes theyd work. Overall this was a fun manicure and different from the ones I normally do (which is a typical base shade with possibly a glitter over it if Im feeling up for it).
Heres the products that I used & the order I used them: 1 coat of Sally Hansens Hard as Nails 2 coats of NYC Long wearing Nail Enamel in French White Tip 1 coat of Wet n Wild Fast Dry Nail Enamel (let dry fully) Dabbed on each nail: Wet n Wild Megalast - Topicalia Dabbed on each nail: Wet n Wild Megalast I Need a Refresh-Mint Dabbed on each nail: Wet n Wild Megalast On a Trip 1 coat Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat So there you have it, my nail look of the moment!
QUESTION: Would you try something like this on your nails? Images are mine do not take or use. Thank you. design beauty
