I don't want to post these nails cos I'm not pleased, but a few friends knew I was attempting them and I think they want to see the outcome!
I was trying to recreate this which was posted on facebook recently. Stunning work! Not wanting to copy exactly, I decided to use shades of pink instead of purple, because I love pink and have a lot of different shades in my collection to choose from. I think my first mistake was choosing two really contrasting colours for the two pink shades - if they were more similar (like the two purples in the facebook pic) then I think my mistakes would be less obvious!
Okay - here is my attempt:
The biggest problem I have with this attempt is that the lines between the colours aren't crisp and straight. They're so messy! I used masking tape for the sections, and have tried peeling the tape off when the varnish is wet, semi-wet, dry.... it all messes it up. So does peeling it off fast, slow, in the direction of the polish, in the opposite direction etc. Does anyone have any further tips on how I can make the lines more crisp? Any help would be appreciated!
