Playing With Nail Art

It's nice when you can find a spare moment to let your imagination run wild, no theme or agenda and do some nail art.   This afternoon I did exactly that so I thought I'd share with you some of the designs I came up with.

With two coats of CND Shellac in Overtly Onyx, I applied to striping tape across the nail and then in a chevron style vertically.  I then apply various different CND Additives to create this interesting effect.
 
For the next colour pop I cured two layers of Cream Puff and applied Lecente Milky Way, CND Additive in Blush Bronze Frost into the sticky layer.  I then used Overtly Onyx to draw the design and CND Additive in Violet Pearl for the centre of the butterfly and Pink Gold Sparkle for the flower.  

For the centre colour pop and the far right, I applied two colour coats (Serene Green and Crimson Sash) I then took a fan brush, wiped it over with a little D Sperse which meant the bristles slightly stick together and after dipping them in Locket Love I swept across the Colour pops. 
 
The final Colour pop is two coats of Sage Scarf, a few dabs of Lecente Galaxy and Lunar and the snowflakes drawn with Overtly Onyx.
 
I particularly liked using the fan brush for the fine, perfectly spaced lines.  On the red colour pop I went over them very lightly for more of a feathered look and on the green colour pop I swept from the sides to the centre.  I hope you enjoyed this post!
