As a nail art blogger is good to keep trying on the new trends and keep improving your work. I have been working on improving my work and now I want to try something new. That’s what I’m doing today. As you may or may not know I traveled almost a moth ago and from my Nail Art Haul I did a sneaky post that you can check right here. I also did a little bit of a clothes shopping, one of the purchases served as my inspiration for today’s mani.
My inspiration for this mani is my new American Eagle printed legging. I have not yet wore this and since I am weird that’s why I did my nails like this.. so I could match my outfit with my nails, like I said, I’m weird. Let me show the print.On to Nail Talk! The trend that I tried today is called Ikat Nails. It is not that new but I have never tried it before and I think is kind of a summer trend this year so I gave it a shot. For my nails I picked two of the rhombus from the print: the mint rhombus on my pinky and ring finger, and the fuchsia rhombus with a peachy coral accent line on my middle, index and thumb. For the first print I started with a mint base using LA Colors Color Craze “Meadow” I detailed the print with Valmy “Negro“, Santee “Perfect Silver” and Lay-Pro “Color 85“. For the second one I used a fucshia base with Valmy “Atrevida“, and for the details I used Valmy “Negro“, Santee “Perfect Silver“, and Essie “Tart Deco” The ikat (line, after line, after line to create a shape) was done with a detailing brush
