Summer Fresh

Hello Friends!

It's been a long while since I last posted but today I have a summer ready manicure that was super easy and really adorable!

I started with a white base coat and then added the colors below in one-stroke fashion to my desired color density.

I was very inspired by The Nailasaurus for this look.  You can see her original post here.  To do this look, all you need is a few colors that you want to blend together.  I dropped a few drops of color on a piece of tin foil and then used a spare brush to mix some acetone into the drops of color.  Once it was thinned out a bit (watery), I did only one stroke across the nail in the horizontal direction then a vertical one.

I tried to do each nail a bit different so the strokes wouldn't be the same.  This was really fun to do and super quick!  Once the colors looked good to me, I ended with a layer of Seche Vite for a super shine.

Thanks for stopping by!
