It's been a while since I've done a new post--life gets crazy around here. The design I did for this tutorial included a new color that I recently picked up at Ulta. The color Pamplona Purple is part of the OPI Espana Collection and to be honest I had to stop myself from bringing them all home. Each color was gorgeous and unique but, I refuse to pay $8.50 a piece at Ulta so I will be ordering my fav's online via transdesign.com.
Onto the design--
While this pattern looks very easy to do, I find that drawing straight lines is both crucial and extremely difficult. I picked up a couple of tips to drawing straight lines in making this specific design.
- Balance your hand--just like applying liquid eyeliner find something to balance your drawing hand on to help you
- Move your finger and not the brush- sometimes rolling your hand is the absolute easiest way to draw the line
- Be patient
- Don't be afraid to re-try a nail--no one's perfect
