Winter Blues is the theme for this week in the Let it Snow! challenge. There were lots of options for this manicure. I got my inspiration at work. There is a box of tissues sitting there that I see everyday. This is what inspired my look this week:
I didn't want to do a gradient and I have been wanting to try the fan brush technique. So, I went to Michaels and picked up a couple of fan brushes for around $3.00. This technique is amazingly simple and you have quite a bit of control over your design. I used several colors in mine and I really like the wintry feel of a snowy Buffalo.
Here is what I used for this manicure:
- 2 coats of Sally Hansen Ivory Skull as a base
- 1 coat of Seche Vite
- "fanned" colors:
- Sinful Colors Aquamarine
- Sally Hansen Air
- Sally Hansen Himalayan Blue
- Sally Hansen Thinking of Blue
- 1 coat of Seche Vite to seal it all in.
I had a major catastrophe 2 weeks ago when I snapped the goose neck to my OttLite. I was devastated! This is why my photos show more of a yellow light rather than a white light. I am lucky that my hubby was able to ghetto-fy it to being in a semi-working status. Hopefully it will be able to work for my light box. :)
I really like it! I hope you do too.
