Monkey See Monkey Do Monday: Graffiti Nails!

Monday, 20 May 2013

Monkey See, Monkey Do time, with Crumpet's Nail Tarts, another Facebook group I enjoy. Today's mani was a beauty I spotted the other day by Alexis over at Glitter Tips, her blog is a source of endless inspiration to me! I hope one day my mani's equal hers! She had been inspired by a YouTube video to do this mani and I in turn, was inspired by her... The love spreads :)

This was a case of two coats of white for the base, followed by sponging on the various neon shades in combinations of pink/blue, orange/pink, yellow/green. I sponged each colour twice as these neons are pearlescent and slightly sheer. Next I applied a topcoat. Once the topcoat had COMPLETELY dried, I used my Barry M Nail Art pen to draw on the black detailing - zig zags in an explosion type fashion at the edges of the colours etc. This was the first time I've pulled out these pens even though I've had all of them for aaaages now; and what a joy this one was to use! A few pumps to get the inky polish down to the tip and away you go; the lighter the touch the thinner the lines :) Awesome product!

I was soooo pleased with how this turned out!!! Can't wait to get creative with these pens now! Here is a pic of the original, it was so perfect that I stayed true to the design...

  1. This looks so awesome! I would never have thought to do something like this. I really like the colours and they stand out so much with the black nail art pen in contrast :)
