From time to time I love doing patterns that aren’t freehanded, where I use either guides or tape. Let’s face it, the nail art looks much more precise and the lines are sharp creating a completely different feeling to a manicure!
For today’s nails I wanted to combine a sheer nude from Ciaté named Sundays with a metallic and a contrasting polish. I’m not sure but I think I’ve become more patient with my bases because I didn’t feel that intolerant waiting for the manicure to dry :D Or maybe my bases dried really fast, I can’t really tell which the real reason was.
The order of this manicure is:
- Ciaté – Sundays for the base (two coats)
- Milani – Gold Plated for the next layer
- Ciaté Gelology – Pool Party for the smaller blue triangles at the nail tips.
How do you like working with guides/tape versus freehanding? Which is your favorite way of doing nail art?
Elegant outcome and colour combo!
Det här var jättefint! Jag gillar tekniken och färgkombinationen!
Wow, that’s super pretty and elegant! :)
