Hey Y'all! I did this design last week as an entry to Linda165's First Nail Art Contest/Giveaway. This contest was really fun!!! The theme was different strokes as the title states. What does that mean you ask? Well she requested designs that has more than one pattern. What a fun challenge!
For this design I wanted to do mostly hand paint since I haven't really been practicing that much. I definitely wanted it to be different so I chose two opposing patterns. I created a french manicure for the design and painted the tip plaid and the nail bed with a paisley pattern.
I decided to go with bright summery colors as I am so ready for it! I used Cuty hot pink polish by Sinful Colors, 220 Volts by Funky Fingers, Black Creme Lace by Love my Nails, and White Tips by G-1. I used nail art stripers as well, to accent the design. Luckily I had some that went perfectly with the polish colors I chose. I went with white, black, turquoise & pink glow nail art stripers.
Well...the contest is almost over and very soon the winners will be announced! This has been a really fun experience and I am just about ready for another! I hope you ladies are as well! Spring is here and it's time for rejuvenation! Let's get our creative juices flowing! I hope y'all are ready to find out the contest winner & another surprise I have in store for you. Until then I hope you enjoy the tutorial! Take care!
