Artsy Wednesday: Blue nails

Hey hey! It's Artsy Wednesday again! This time the theme is blue nails, and here's what my design looks like in the sun:


I first painted my nails with ulta3 Blue Marlin (medium blue creme) on the right, and a franken I made from Spring Shower and a few drops of black on the left. Then I taped a zigzag and painted it with China Glaze DV8, a gorgeous teal linear holo which the lovely Alanna from Pretty Purple Polish bought for me :) I finished with a coat of Poshe topcoat. In the shade:



Check out these blogs for more takes on the theme! See you next Wednesday, and remember, if you want in on the fun, just contact one of us :)

  1. This looks great! :) DV8 is sooo pretty! Can't wait to use it. I swatched my Ulta3's Cocoa was a surprise favourite for me.

    1. DV8 is amazing! :) What a coincidence, I'm wearing Cocoa right now... it's pretty and elegant, but now the sun's come out and I wish I went for TMI like I originally planned!

    1. I love geometric designs! I think the taping was actually unnecessary, next time I'm just going to wing it lol! Taing takes forever :(

    1. I was surprised by how well the holo effect turned out, I was worried that the zigzag would be too small to see the rainbow, but it worked out :)

    1. It's a lot simpler than you'd think! Just make sure the bottom layer is dry, there aren't any gaps in the bits stuck down, and you peel off the tape quickly - that's it!
