Nail Art – Dry brush technique with framed nails

I started today’s nail art by using the dry brush technique combining pink, black and gold. The pink I used for today’s manicure is Essie – Secret story, the gold is Estessimo TiNS – Rich Topaz, a polish that I received in a swap from my dearest friend from A Lacquered Affair, and the black is Nordic Cap NP12. Inspired by Claw of Cthulhu’s framed nails I thought I would give it a try and I loved the result! I’m definitely trying this technique again in a near future. When I was done with the nails I felt the colors were screaming eighties :D But as I said, more framed nails are to come in the future :)

    The colors ARE screaming 80s, but that technique is so, so cool!

    Wow, sooo glam. The framing does it! I love it, its great without the frames, but with it’s just that bit extra. (Great art belongs into a frame…:-P)
    All the best!
