Today is my first Saturday participating in another nail art club from The Crumpet's Nail Tarts. They have a weekly nail art day on Saturdays, with a new theme every week. I may not be participating in these too regularly until after January, because in Jan I will be participating in the NEW 31 Day Challenge. Check out more info on this over at The Crumpet.
Today's theme is anything Christmas, so I am going to show you guys this awesome holiday themed brushstroke mani! I was inspired by designs by Debbie from The Crumpet, as well as Sarah from Chalkboard Nails. They were both inspired by Gorgeois, who has a tutorial on this method here.
Here are all the colors I used, which include, China Glaze Gr8 (base color), OPI Smitten With Mittens, China Glaze Velvet Bow, China Glaze Holly-Day, China Glaze Poinsettia, China Glaze Glittering Garland, China Glaze Ultamate Holiday, and Zoya Isla.
This technique was pretty easy, although I did have to practice a bit on a nail wheel first to get a feel of how much polish to have on my brush, how big to make my strokes, and things like that. I am quite pleased with how this turned out though, it is abstract but still Christmas-y.
What do you think, is this a technique you will try? I think I will try this again with different colors some time in the future.
