Hello everyone! Hope you're having a great weekend! I'm getting my hair done today and that always makes me feel better! My hair salon also carries Smith & Cult polish, and I intend to pick one up while I am there.
But of course you came for nails, and not hair, so let's get into this week's post. I know I haven't done any art in awhile, I have been super busy, great things are happening in my life! So I decided to try my hand at the dry brush technique - where you essentially wipe off most of the polish and give your mani a cool brush stroke abstract look.
First, the base
color I chose is a gorgeous dark gray holo with purple flash, Suck it
Trebek by Bear Pawlish. I wanted it for the name alone as Celebrity
Jeopardy is one of my favorite SNL skits, but the color is also
I also managed to
snag a sample at the recent Elevation Polish restock, as well as one of
the Wyoming collection, Cloud Peak. The sample (WYL #12) is a glitter
topper with stars, hexes, and squares in light blue and green. Cloud
Peak is a wonderful cornflower blue creme/flakie hybrid - something I
have never seen before! It seems like every indie brand released a
flakie collection in the last 6 months, but Elevation combined flakies
with a shimmery creme to create something truly unique!
And of course, I
utilized one of my favorite Nail Vinyl shapes, stars, for a cohesive
look. I really like how the dry brush turned out, it is definitely easy
to do and a fun way to make your mani stand out!
