It may not be the middle of the week anymore, but we’ll just go with it.
Thiis week’s mani is a very involved one, but was surprisingly very forgiving. It did take some time and patience, and you can probably see that it’s not perfect, but it was fun to do.
- Base Coat
- Several So Easy Strip Rite polishes in black, white and what turned out to be orange (it didn’t loo so orange in the bottle!)
- Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Royal Blush (for the nails without any design)
- Top Coat
So, to create the look, I used a black striper polish to paint on an outline of the design I wanted, which is really just a series of triangles. After painting out the design in black, I went in with the orange and filled in between the lines, then did the same thing with the white. After all of that was dry, I went back with the black polish and cleaned up the lines. This great tutorial on youtube gave me the inspiration (and courage) to try the technique.
