First pictorial

My very first pictorial using Barry m prickly pear & acrylic paints, I hope you all like it & try it out….the best way I find to getting straight lines is to put the tip of your stripping brush onto your nail & start to lie the brush flat while you drag it down your nail…I get wobbly lines if I hesitate but if I do it quickly I produce straight lines….enjoy & have fun!

Under the influence

Inspiration hits us all at the strangest of times….I don’t have a drink very often but I couldn’t refuse a couple of Green Label Jack Daniels from my son, if you haven’t tried this, hell you’re missing out! Firstly with coke, then neat….I think a third glass would of had me talking jibbedish & painting faces instead of nails!
The problem I have is that when I get a bit of inspiration I have to go off and create something, when I take notes & have a to do list (which of course I do) & it’s huge…I always feel like something’s missing…so this mani was by no means my (latest stay up & do) but it was my first under the influence….I’m thinking I may need to indulge in JD more often….Cheers

Black & white

I love this mani & it was so easy to do but looks so effective….apply your gradient, once dry & using the same colours apply stripes to you nails & ta dah…all done, add your top coat of choice, hmmm maybe I’ll try it matte next.
