TGIF! Happy Friday! So relieved that its the weekend, I definitely need a break after this exhausting week at school 🙂 For me, doing my nails has seriously become a “relaxation technique” I guess you could say. After a long day, instead of plopping on the couch and watching TV, I really love to do my nails. Its a wonderful way to relax! 🙂
The other day I was testing out this idea but didn’t have time to do a complete mani. I really liked the mosaic background with geometric lines and shapes over it. Anyways…here’s what I used:
These 3 colors are from OPI’s Spring/Summer 2013 Euro Centrale Collection (I did swatches yesterday). I thought that these three colors looked perfect together!
To do the mosaic look in the background, I first painted my nails with a base coat (OPI Nail Envy is my latest favorite). I then used the brushes straight out of the polish bottle and painted the “mosaics”. On my right hand, I painted lines in different directions with the colors. On my left hand I did something similar except I painted different sized dots. After I let the background for my design dry I got this black nail art striper and painted the designs over it! Ta-da!
