Plaid Nails Using the Gelish Colors of Paradise
I attempted a plaid design for the first time ever. I used all of the colors from the Gelish Colors of Paradise collection for this nail art, except for the orange. I figured these colors might work well with a plaid design since they are a little sheer with just one coat. The index finger has 3 coats of Tahiti Hottie, and the pinky finger has 3 coats of Rub Me the Sarong Way. For the plaid nails, I started with a base of Lime All the Time and then hand-painted on the stripes using nail art brushes.
I would like to learn to draw thinner lines with gel polish. I used a very narrow striping brush to draw the finer lines, but they still look thick to me. They’re are also a little lumpy looking with all of the layers, and I wonder if there are possibly too many colors? I’m sure this won’t be my last attempt at a plaid pattern, so I’ll try to improve upon those next time.
This will probably be my last look using the Colors of Paradise collection for a while. I’ll be featuring several other new collections, and the next one should be posted on Friday!
