Nails Inc Old bond street and geometric design

Sunday, June 14, 2015

I'm still not sick of these sort of blues yet. It's just darkish-ly awesome? I'm not sure how to say it in a better way! 

Let me the base first. Nails Inc's Old bond street which is a purple-blue at two coats. Now that I look at it it would've been looking at its best with three coats. If there wasn't other plans to do a design on top I'd definitely suggest three coats.

For this manicure:

  • Apply one coat of your preferred base coat (I used Essie's protein base coat.)
  • Apply two coats of Nails Inc's Old bond street. Three for full opacity if you don't plan to start doodling a design over the top.
  • With a thin striping brush and a white draw horiontal and vertical lines on the middle and ring finger nails. Next, draw diagonal lines from right to left and wait for it to dry.
    If a brush is too tricky for you to draw the lines with, alternatively you can use those nail art pens. Barry M does some which are quite easy to use.
  • Start colouring in the triangles on the middle and ring finger nail with the following polishes:
    Nails Inc's Upper cheyne row - A muted pink
    Nails Inc's Showfield street - A periqinkle blue
    Nails Inc's Kensington palace gardens - Peachy coral
  • After colouring in go over the lines again with the white.
  • With Nails Inc's Novello Street - Silver glitter, apply over the index and pinkie finger nail
  • Seal with one coat of your preferred top coat. (I use INM's Out the door top coat.)

Well, the design didn't come out as good as the others I've seen floating around on Instagram because there's more of the white than the colours.

No worries. Next time will be a better try.
