Just thought I would share a couple of nail art ideas! I was playing around with my striping brush and gems, and this is what I came up with. I really like my black and white 'distressed' look and was easy to achieve.
For the black and white look: Paint base layer, add black acrylic paint, whist wet go through with your brush. This could also be achieved with gel.
For the purple nail: paint your base layer, when dry using a striping brush in acrylic paints, draw lines from a corner in your chosen colours. When happy apply a gem in the corner.
For the Jewel French: Apply base colour and finish nail. Apply resin to the tip and apply jewels. Sprinkle over glitter. Brush off excess and voila!
Hope you like these!
