Batik inspired mani

this nail art technique has been trending last summer and has found a comeback recently in new year’s manis. 

thought I’d try it.

used white acrylic paint over black, and OPI sheer tints.

remember these sheer colors give a new color when they overlap, which gives a cool rainbow/gradient effect when aligned properly.

blue+yellow= green

تصميم الباتيك

درج استخدام هذه الطريقة في الصيف الفائت و قد انتشرت مؤخرا بمناسبة تصاميم رأس السنة و فكرت أن اجربها

استخدمت اصباغ توب كوت الشفاف الملون من


و يمتاز هذا النوع بشفافية جميلة لألوانه بحيث تعطي الوان جديدة اذا ما تقاطعت المساحات بينها و يمكن الحصول على شكل تدرج طيفي اذا تم وضعها بترتيب مناسب

I know it’s hard to tell in these photos, but this gorgeous pearlescent white features teeny teeny tiny gold microglitters that make it a “GLAM” feeling, fancier than your basic, white. The down side of this polish however is it takes about 3 coats for solid/ consistent coverage because of its milky/pearly effect. However layering this polish over another color looks really gorgeous!

Stay tuned for the four designs featuring this polish. Visit the CHALLENGES -> P.O.T.W. for more nail art and swatches.

Let me first start by saying that O.P.I. makes some of the most amazing duo chromes, and GREEN ON THE RUNWAY does not disappoint! This gorgeous green polish fades from a beautiful forest green to a dark purpley brown… which is pretty perfect for fall! :)

I have had this idea vaguely in mind for a few weeks, but hadn’t worked out how to execute it to achieve the result I wanted. After my creativity slump this week I wanted something a little more challenging so decided to take the plunge. I used Barry M - Coconut, OPI - Just Lanai-ing Around and water decals by KB Shimmer. It’s like a little bit of Spring is peeping through on my nails.
