Digit-al Dozen Does it AGAIN: Blue

press samples

Happy Monday! I’m a little off schedule today. Lots going on in my “other” world. But it’s all excellent. So hopefully you’ve seen yesterday’s big post announcing Digit-al Dozen Does it Again! If you haven’t…go check it out, because we’re also hosting a huge international giveaway!! Today is our first nail art day. Back in September 2012, the theme was “blue”. I didn’t join the group until the December challenge, so this is the first time I’ll be tackling this topic. I couldn’t decide on a favorite blue, so I just chose a bunch!

Blue Patchwork Nail Art

This was seriously so easy. I used all cremes: OPI Keeping Suzi at Bay, Zoya Kristen, Zoya Sailor, China Glaze Sunday Funday and Essie Avenue Maintain. I freehanded the blocks of color with a flat nail art brush. They didn’t need to be lined up perfectly since I would be lining each block with black at the end. To make the black lines, I used watered-down, black acrylic paint (it’s easier to control that way) and a teensie brush. Fun, right?

    Wow, that looks amazing I love that patchwork look, maybe an orange based one for halloween :) I have to get some acrylic paints, there’s no way to free hand that with regular polish. Do you think a permanent marker will work?
