Hi everyone, TGIF! I love Fridays, especially this one. My work project that was thrown on me that I had no time for will finally be in review today after two months of agonizing work on it. Also, I haven't been home for the weekend in about a month so I am really looking forward to sitting back and relaxing. I'll be working on some fall designs and reviews for the blog and going out to dinner and a craft fair with the hubby tonight. Do you have any fun weekend plans?
Today I have a design that I made up on the fly, but really ended up loving. I've never really been an overly girly person so I liked the edge that this mani had. I named this the "Spiked Strikes" mani :) I started with a base of OPI Sprung. Although this came out in the Spring, I think it makes a great Fall color. I took one of my all-time favorite blues, OPI Blue My Mind, and created a thick stripe down the center. I repeated this with OPI Sprung and then created the smallest stripe with Essie Licorice. When the black polish was still wet, I took a pointy nail art brush and did brush strokes from the center and swiping out. I did one side of the stripe and then alternated the opposite side.
In the end, I quite liked this punk-y mani. What do you think? Would this be something you would try?
