It's been so cold and dreary around here. I needed some bright nails to cheer me up!
I've been wanting to try an ikat design for a long time, they're so amazing-looking (and not too hard to do)!
|Just ignore the index finger failure ok :)|
For the non-accent nails, I used a base of Nails Inc Baker Street (one of my favorite polishes) and Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow for the colored centers. For the accent nail, I used a base of Sephora by OPI It's Totally Karma and Deborah Lippmann Scream & Shout for the colored centers.
All the nails use Revlon Spirit for the white centers and Wet n Wild Black Creme for the black outsides and centers.
|My camera did not want to focus on these.|
I used Kayla Shevonne's tutorial for these.
Also, I've switched to a black background in my lightbox (a la Chalkboard Nails). It looks so much better -- I actually didn't have to edit these photos at all beyond cropping/adding a watermark!
And I've finally been catching up on my blog reading before school starts up again. It's been so great to see what you guys have been up to!
Thanks for reading & be sure to let me know what you think!
