I've been messing around with nail varnishes again. I was still feeling a bit inspired from my Rouge Noir DIY adventure. This time I wanted to do something with a hot pink and my black varnishes and I wanted it to have some texture.
What I came up with was the idea to have my nails look slightly marbled with the edges looking like a screen print. You know how when you see the edges of a layered print and the individual colours show? That's what I was aiming for.
To get there I started with my OPI Nail Envy and went in with a coat of my electric pink. This is a cream finish colour that was Space NK's own brand and long ago discontinued. Over that I did a layer of my Le Metier De Beaute Black varnish and went over it with the pink again and finished with a clear top coat.
I'm really pleased with the effect and got a bunch of compliments when I wore it out. With spring trying to show itself but the cold weather still reigning I feel like this is the perfect way to wear a bright nail right now.
