Nail Challenge Week 15: Delicate Print

Another mini photo tutorial for you.  This time is a butterfly wing:

Base colour: Sinful Colors Neon Purple (dries matte)

Black detail: Hand-drawn using a fine permanent marker.  I did try a brush but I just couldn’t get the lines fine enough.  Perhaps I was using the wrong kind of brush?

Solid black detail: Nails Inc London Nights kind of spoldged on carefully.

White: Nails Inc Floral street applied with a dotting tool (still loving my dotting tool).

Top Coat: Special FX Top Coat – very important as all of my other top coats smudged the permanent pen!

Verdict: Very easy as most of the detail was drawn on.  You have to wait until the base coat is completely dry though so it’s a bit of a pain.  I’d love to try this over a ombre or sparkly nail polish next time.
