Hi! I hope you're having a great week! Mine has been pretty busy but I've been fitting in some nail art so i have two manis to show you today!
The manis I have to show you today were done using some nail art brushes I was sent by LadyQueen. You can save 15% on all orders by using the code HSLC15 at the checkout.
These brushes are great! They're very fine so easy to work with and they stay nice and pliable too. a lot of my other brushes go stiff after one use and won't become soft again so these ones were great! Before I used them, they were quite stiff but I soaked a cotton pad in acetone and wiped over the bristles before I used them and they become really soft and flexible and stayed that way no matter how many times I used them.
The first mani I did, I used a nice polish as a base and then used the brushes and orange, red and purple acrylic paints to create a 'love' theme.
I don't usually do writing with acrylic paints and brushes but this (while not perfect) was easy to do.
I know the design isn't perfect but for my first practise with these brushes I love it!
For my second mani I used a yellow polish as the base and black, purple, red and orange acrylic paints.
I didn't really have a design in mind when I did this, I just wanted to create straight, diagonal and curved lines as well as squares, triangles and sots to see what the brushes could do.
It took me a few goes to work out how much paint I could pick up on the brush to work with and how much pressure I could use but they were easy to work with.
Between each colour I cleaned the brushes and was surprised how quickly they cleaned and dried and were ready to use again. I was also surprised I didn't have to prep with acetone each time!
Here is my finished design top coated.
