Sorry for the radio silence but I will try to get back on track with the blog!
I mixed a sheer black polish some time ago, but this was the first time I used it in a full design. And because I’m impatient and couldn’t wait for it to dry, I freehanded the design instead of taping for a cleaner look.
I mixed the polish in a ratio of one drop of black to about three/four clear, so it’s very sheer. I used two coats for the base, then painted the design in black using Bourjois Noir de Chine and a fine detail brush.
