Neutral with a Pop Haze

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

This month's theme for The Nail Challenge Collaborative is untried. I'm using a bunch of Sephora by OPI polishes this time. I've been loving this particular technique using a fan brush so I wanted to share it with everyone. It kind of has a hazy looking effect to it.

Sephora by OPI, Sally Hansen

I started with Sephora by OPI Let's PilĂ© on all the nails. For the ring nail, I did a glitter accent using Sephora by OPI It's Bouquet With Me. With a fan brush, I applied Sephora by OPI Metro Chic and Sephora by OPI Skinny Jeans on my nails to create this haze looking effect to it. Lastly, I finished with Sally Hansen Diamond Flash Top Coat.

I love how this looks. The blue adds a nice pop of color. What do you think of this manicure?

  6. love the color combination here! I should really try the fan brush thing again... i tried it over a year ago with acrylics and it didn't look like this at all... i think maybe i had too much water on my brush or something :(

    1. Thanks! Definitely give it a try. I used polish and lightly painted the tips of the fan brush then applied it on my nails to create this look. I'm sure you'll get it right if you decide to give it another try :)

  10. I like this one a lot. It reminds me of a desert vista for some reason and the glitter is a fun accent nail.

  16. Ah, this would be a challenge after my liking. I miss the Nail Challenge Collaborative!

    I love your mani! The fan brush is not a tool I have mastered yet so any chance to see a mani with it inspires me more to try again. :)
