I never really know what to name my NOTDs. I always try to describe it in the most literal sense mostly because I can't really think of creative names for my manis. lol. Well, anyways...I'm thinking of clearing out my Helmer soon and doing a blog sale, but I still have a lot of polishes that are brand new and never been used/swatched. So my goal is to incorporate every polish I own into a NOTD before I do my blog sale. It might be a while haha either that or it'll motivate me more to post a lot.
For today, I went for a khaki/dusty color scheme. Then I used a striper brush to paint my stripes. I did these on my natural nail instead of adding a base color before the stripes. I, personally, really like this style of nail art (painting designs on your natural nail without a colored base).
It had been so long since I've done real designs on nails that my hand was definitely shaky and not steady as I was painting the stripes. I had to erase them a couple of times and start completely over. So forgive me for the not so straight lines. I definitely need to practice steadying my hand again especially if I want to paint intricate designs again.
I used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Greige Gardens (pinky), Catrice Pink Spring (ring), Etude House BR301 Black Tea Milk (middle), Etude House PP904 Grape Milk (index), Catrice Walk In The Woods (thumb), a striping brush, and Diamond Dry Top Coat Brilliance.
That's it for now. I started a new job, so it's been taking up a lot of my time, but I'm still aiming to post twice a week at least :) I also have more things/ideas that I want to share with y'all so stay tuned!
