So to kick start the year, I decided to do some abstract nail art. I find these designs very timeless and classy. Check this out:
The idea for this freehand nail art is just to combine circles and lines, sort of like connecting the dots but in a more confusing way. Okay, am probably not making sense. The thing is, my life was a mess last year and things are starting to look up this year with exciting opportunities for 2016. Am being careful reconnecting the pieces of my life and I'd like a nail art that will tell me that story. Too deep? ;)
On to lighter things, I used Essie Virgin Snow in 2 coats for this nail design. It's a creme nail polish with a very pale purple tint. Great consistency all throughout my manicure. Am not really fond of pastels, but light bases are always good for a nail art design. Am sure you will agree.
I used a detail nail art brush, a striper, and acrylic paints for the design.
The design is not completely random as per my usual designs. I painted 2 large circles near the cuticle area of the same color and another circle of a different color on the tip. Then using a stripping brush, I drew horizontal lines over the circles.
To make this a little more interesting, I decided to alternate colors of the circles on each hand. Did you notice? ;) Purple circles first on my left hand and white on my right hand. It's a very subtle difference, but to me, it's a reminder to always look at things at different perspectives. Now I know am getting old because am starting to put too much meaning on my nail art designs!
