I tried a new technique today. I’m feeling adventurous and brave. I defy the nail art Gods! I will master the dark arts of the nail art brush, sponge and striping tape!
It’s called a Syrup mani and here’s how you do it:
You take a jelly (sheer) finish nail polish and you paint one coat as usual on the whole nail, but on the second coat you start about a third of the way down the nail. Then on the third coat you just paint the bottom third of the nail, so you get a kind of gradient effect but with just one colour. It’s supposed to look like syrup dripping off the nails I think?
Anyway that’s what I tried today, I used NYC NY Princess which is a fab dark purple jelly with purple glitter. (Glitter makes everything better!)
What do you think?
NYC NY Princess
Thanks for looking!
