Polish Days - Something New

Hi fellow nail lovers!!

Since it's a new year, this month's Polish Days theme was to try something new.  I decided to try some nail art with a fan brush, something I saw on Pinterest here.


Mine didn't turn out like the original, but it still was a cool look.  It required using a fan brush, dipping it in polish and creating stripes on the nail.


I used OPI Fly as a base then waited for the polish to dry.  I then used Nails Inc. Pembroke Close and A-England Order of the Garter with the fan brush.  I topped it off with Nubzen Claus Flash Dry Manicure Sealant.

I think my lines weren't as defined because I didn't use enough polish, so it dried very quickly.  I still really like the way this mani turned out.  I really like the addition of the shimmer from Order of the Garter.  I'm so grateful for this challenge that encouraged me to try a new technique.  It wasn't very difficult.

What do you guys think of this mani?  Have you tried this technique?

There are many lovely bloggers participating in this challenge, be sure to check out their posts!

  11. I love it! I saw this picture on Pinterest but didn't get to try it myself. I actually have a fan brush that I purchased a long time ago and I didn't know what to use it for. I have to give this a try. I love all the colors you used!
