Today I'm back with some new nail art. A couple of days ago I did a mani swap with the lovely mvargas_nails on Instagram. I chose to recreate her nautical design while she chose to recreate my floral lace design.
You can see my floral lace nails here
So onto the design I recreated....
I used +OPI Products Alpine Snow as my base (2 coats) and then I painted all of the detail freehand using my Oumaxi acrylic paints and my Pure Color 9 brush (striper brush).
I started by painting the stripes over my base. I decided to freehand these rather than use stripping tape to make things easier. While the lines aren't completely perfect, using a striping brush enables you to achieve pretty accurate lines. After this, I painted the anchors and finally the flowers. I didn't do a tutorial for these as I was just having a nice chilled evening enjoying painting. I find tutorials can be quite time consuming.
Here are the finished nails. I took quite a few different photos to show different angles. I love them so much!
I really hope you like these!
