Curtain Call

China Glaze Fade Into Hue with Nail Art

I started this manicure with absolutely no idea where it was going. It's one of those that just developed as I went along, all the while facing the very real risk of going completely overboard with colours, details and stick-ons but this one stayed on course and I really like the simple result. I just started with a general idea that I wanted to do something geometric and went from there. I've confessed before that my geometric nail art is not really A-game standard but it's a style that I'm determined to practice and perfect this year!

1. I started with a base of China Glaze Fade Into Hue.

2. Next, I used a striping brush to paint on the cobalt blue sections in Nails Inc All Saints Row.

3. Using the same brush, I carefully went over the line with Models Own Bubblegum.

4. I felt like it was missing something so I dug through all of my studs before deciding on some 1.5mm white studs which I attached using a drop of clear nail polish.

5. Finally, I topped it all off with Color Club Top Coat.
