Day 22 – Inspired by a Fabric

18 Jul

I’ve been wanting to do denim nails for ever so couldn’t wait for this day of the challenge. I started with a darkish blue and then cling filmed on a lighter blue for a kind of mottled look. Once that had all dried I used a tutorial from Nail Pop llc which you can hopefully see here.  It basically involves painting white polish on a bit of denim (thanks to my boyfriend for his old pair of jeans!) and then printing it onto the nail the same way you would when stamping.  It worked on some nails and not so much on others, I think the trick is to have as little polish on the denim as possible. I finished it all with a matt topcoat.




These are by no way perfect but I don’t think they’re too bad for a first attempt at this technique. I’ll definitely be giving it another go at some point!

Polishes used:
Barry M 291 (darker blue)
Barry M 294 (cyan blue)
W7 white
