Many months ago, I found (on pinterest) some rather mesmerizing nail art, that I entitled seaweed. I quickly realized that it was a stamp, and that I did not own said stamp. I once tried to re-create this mani, and failed miserably. However, as of today, I have succeeded.
Since I don’t have the stamp that goes with my design, I decided to free-hand it! It took (a lot) longer than stamping, but it led to more variation, and let me hide a heart on my ring finger! ❤
The base for this is a polish I recently won from Tattooed Nail Girl, Lost in Paradise by P2. It is my first P2 polish, and a teal/blue duochrome! This polish took two coats to be opaque and was slightly streaky on application, but dried without streaks. It’s just stunning! Although the brush for this polish was unfortunately wide, the control was perfect and I had almost no clean up.
I free-handed the design using my dotting tool (…unbent hair pin) and my nail art brush. It looks like the dots are waving at me! (No? Maybe I need more sleep? Oops…)
