NOTD Neon Distressed Manicure (Dry Brush Technique) @iamcherrylemon

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!
