Morning! Happy Sunday!
For Today’s manicure, I’ve combined a new nail art technique (new to me!) and a hot summer nail art trend. Dry brush technique is super cool and super easy to do!
As you can see I can probably improve on the dry brush part! It doesn’t look as “cool” as it should! But I’m pretty happy with the colours. The neon studs were a fabulous addition, love them!
What is dry brush technique?
It really is what it reads! Using a dry nail colour brush!
On a base colour, use a dry brush to paint abstract or graffiti-like strokes.
To get that, you just wipe off majority of the polish on the nail colour brush. I only made sure I deposit it all back into the bottle. Test the “dryness” on a piece of paper before painting my dry brush pattern…. Sounds 10 times more difficult than it really is. But it really is simple to do 🙂
What I’ve used:
- Illamasqua nail varnish in Force (Dark purple blue)
- Illamasqua nail varnish in Collide (Neon pink)
- Essie nail polish in Blanc
- Models Own nail polish in Neon Yellow
- Colour Club nail polish in Cloud Nine (holographic)
- Neon yellow and pink square studs
Neons are wonderful colours to use in summer manicure. They looks so good against tanned skin and have such a fun presence on any mani! Must make more use of these neons 🙂
Thank you for reading and have a great week ahead!
