Outlined Nails – Easier than it looks!
I’ve been itching to try outlining my nails but have always thought it would be difficult to do. I also get frustrated with French manicures when the thicker white tip polish chips or flakes off quicker.
Once my gradient was dry I used a striping brush to outline a U-shape around the sides and cuticle of each nail in black. I did all my clean up last to catch the white from the sponging as well as tidy my cuticles.
Here’s the finished design….
Here’s a close up of the holo to show the rainbow effect:
However, the next day I decided that, as lovely as the holo was, it needed something else! So I broke out a new pack of gems from Born Pretty Store and used the black ones in a line of three starting near the cuticle to pull the whole design together.
Finished! Close up, it isn’t the smoothest around the cuticle, but I was still pretty pleased with it.
