China Glaze Road Trip Collection Nail Art


China Glaze Road Trip Nail Art www.chelseaqueen.com

China Glaze’s newest collection, “Road Trip“, is out and today I have some nail art using a few of the colors. The collection has 12 bright colors ranging from blues and turquoises to bright pinks and corals. I think any combination in this collection would look amazing together, but I was instantly drawn to the greens and turquoise.

For my middle and ring finger, I first outlined the shapes. I painted vertical stripes down my nail, and added in triangle shapes. I outlined the design using Lime of a Life Time, as it was the most sheer color of the bunch. After that, I filled in the triangles and shapes using all of the colors.

All were for the most part pretty opaque. With intricate nail art like this, you want to choose the most opaque colors as possible so you don’t have to do multiple coats. Lime of a Life Time was a little more on the sheer side, but 2 coats did the trick! It reminds me of Marc Jacobs Lux, but a little more green.

For the rest of my nails I first painted on a base color and just did one stripe of triangles down the center. I went a bit outside the lines on these nails, and I easily painted a stripe of the base color on either side to make them straighter.
