Hello lovelies & happy Monday!
Today I’m excited because today’s prompt for Glam Nails Challenge March is checkered, & that’s a design I don’t think I’ve ever done in all the years I’ve been doing my nails. So I was very excited for this challenge, & decided to make it even more of a challenge by free-handing the whole look. Haha it’s not like I didn’t have a stamping plate I could have used. I just wanted to see if do it.
& instead of the classic black & white, I decided some Spring-y colours, & peak-a-book negative space, would be perfect.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
- Base Coat: Sally Hansen Good. Kind. Pure Hardener
- Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
- Sinful Colors Fit Chick
- Sinful Colors Blue Me Away
- Sinful Colors Fitspo
- Sinful Colors Yolo Yellow
- Starrily Vantablack
- NailStuff.ca 4mm Micro Detail Brush
I picked up a few of these funky bright Sinful Colors shades at my local Walmart, 3 for $6, so I went with that colour scheme because it would be the most fun. Bright, funky & colourful! Perfect for these almost Spring days we’ve been having.
Also I’m really, really proud of how this freehanding turned out. I was very nervous to attempt something as complex & time consuming as this. But you know what, I’m really glad I did, because they turned out so freaking perfect.
What do you think about this checkered design? Are you feeling these bright, & colourful shades? Let me know all your thoughts down in the comments below!
