Painterly

I’ve been pretty busy lately, so I wanted to do some nail art that was quick and easy, but still cool.  I’ve seen a few versions of “brush stroke” nails, and thought they would be perfect.  I love the combo of the different blues and greens – it’s perfect for spring, and a nice break from all the pinks and corals I’ve been wearing lately.

I don’t remember exactly what I used here (I know there are some Essie, Sally Hansen, and Sinful Colors in there), but it shouldn’t be too hard to find similar colors.  I started with a white base, and then wiped almost all of the polish off of the brush (the one that comes with the polish) before adding the sections of color.  Smaller brushes – think Essie or Sinful Colors, not OPI or Loreal – tend to provide more control for a look like this, but try both and see what works best for you.

I always love blue and green nail polish, and this was a good way to show off some of my current favorites.  Let me know if you’ve tried this technique and what you think of it – share your pictures in the comments below!
