Hey dolls! After giving it some thought, I finally decided to participate in the Busy Girl Nails Winter Nail Art Challenge. This challenge is only once a week, so I’m thinking it will be a good way to show at least one nail art look. Sometimes I am completely busy with reviews, so it’s nice to break that up. The theme for this week is teal. Teal polishes are one of my favorite shades to wear, so I was excited for this prompt. I decided to do another horizontal fan brush mani (see first attempt here) using some new and old polishes.
The Lady Varnishes is one of the indies I was really looking forward to trying late last year. I purchased one of her polishes during the Black Friday sale and I just love it. The Lady Varnishes The Pirate is a deep teal base filled with silver and gold flakies and blue and silver shimmer. The formula was excellent; it was easy to apply and was opaque in two coats. It does dry to a dull finish, so top coat is needed. The accent nails started with two coats of Zoya Trixie, a silver metallic. Next, I applied a England Saint George and Nicole by OPI Khloe Had a Little Lam-Lam in a horizonal manner using the fan brush. Finally, I added a few brush strokes of Trixie to ensure there wasn’t too much teal.
I just love the way this turned out! I ended up using Saint George on my other hand and the colors compliment each other very nicely. This is my type of nail art, simple and chic.
