Manicure Monday: White Meets Pink Fishnet Nails!
I originally was thinking about doing a pink and white striped nails kind of like the Victoria Secret stripe design found on their cute accessories/makeup bags/techie stuff/etc. Something girly and sweet and pretty! I kind of got bored with the plain stripes (and I made them too thin..) so I ended up making a fishnet kind of design..
To make the little fishnet-like design, I first started by making vertical stripes. After those lines had time to dry, I started putting on diagonal stripes, and ended up with this fishnet effect. If you don't have a steady hand, just position the brush and move your nail instead of moving the brush.
For the bow, I started by creating two vertical lines. Next, I put a dot in between the two lines to act as a guideline. From there, just connect the ends of the two lines to the dot and you have a very simple little bow. Adding an accent color here would make the bow stand out...but I'm a lazy panda, so I left it as is. I think gold would be a lovely color to add as an accent.
I didn't use any top coat before taking the picture (I did add some afterwards, and it makes a world of a difference!) Top coat will help smooth out the rough bumps and make the overall fishnet look more clean.
I think it was definitely a fun experience using the striper nail brush. It's not as intimidating as it seems. (#newbie) I hope you enjoyed this nail design! It's got me thinking about Valentine's Day! Have a lovely week! Take care loves!
