Nail Art – Freehand Stripes & Doodles
I needed a little pick-me-up and decided to do some whimsical nail art with bright summer colors. I started off with some freehand stripes using four different gel polish colors. Three of the colors are from the new Gelish Hello Pretty Collection, and one is from the new LeChat Oasis Collection.
- Gelish Anime-Zing Color (blue-ish purple)
- LeChat Castaway (light purple)
- Gelish Pop-arazzi Pose (dark pink)
- Gelish Look at You Pink-achu (light pink)
After applying (and curing) the stripes, I did some whimsical freehand flower doodles using my white Presto gel pot and a fine-tipped nail art brush.
My ring finger proved to be problematic for some reason. No matter what color I polished it with, the color wouldn’t cure. I swear I tried all four of the colors on this nail, and none of them took – they would wipe right off after curing. I’ve never had that happen before, but it could be the new lamp I’m testing. That nail was totally gunked up and I decided to just add purple glitter to cover up the mess! LOL
I haven’t been posting as much as usual lately because things have been a bit hectic. My dad was here for a couple of weeks to help me work on my house. We did lots of scraping, painting and repairs. Thanks, Dad!! I’ve decided to put my house on the market, so I’m trying to get it all fixed up. He helped me with a lot of the stuff that I can’t do on my own, but there’s still plenty left to be done.
And this is officially my last week of school! There are only two days left until graduation, and then my time will be freed up again. I’ve decided to hold off on finding a job in the industry until the end of summer since I have several weeks of travel planned and house work left to do. I plan to post my final nail school update after the week is over, so watch for that! :)
