Necklace Inspired

Last weekend I went shopping and headed into one of my favorite consignment shops while visiting some family. I spotted this necklace at the counter and fell in love! Unfortunately, there’s no sort of marking or anything to tell what brand it is or where it came from. Oh well…it’s perfect for some nail inspiration!

I first painted Essie Good as Gold on all my nails except for my thumb and ring finger, which were painted with Essie Licorice. Good as Gold is probably one of my favorite gold polishes ever. It is the perfect metallic gold and I much prefer it over gold glitters…so much easier to take off!

I then grabbed my nail art brushΒ to paint on the designs matching the print on the necklace. As for my accent nails, I thought a gold chain print would be lovely to go with the gold chain on the necklace.

All done! Here’s another photo, its a bit more zoomed in so you can see the details!

Tomorrow I’m planning to wear my new necklace to match my nails πŸ™‚

    You use that nail art brush to do all your designs in this? Do you also have to go over the designs again so it doesn’t look light? And how do you clean your nail art?

      Yes I do! Sometimes I have to go over the designs a couple times. And I use a brush dipped in polish remover to clean up the edges πŸ™‚

    How do you clean your nail art brush? I have been using nail polish remover, but I notice that every time I pull one out, it’s really stiff and doesn’t work very well.

      I just quickly dip mine in polish remover/acetone and wipe it off on a paper towel. It takes a couple “dips” in the remover to get it completely clean. It could possibly be the type of brush you’re using too! I think the remover can dry up some types of fibers in the brush. It also helps to clean them off in soapy water every once in a while.
