Here's what has been gracing my nails since Thursday:
Isn't it colorful and fun!? :L I first saw this manicure here at Manicurator and it was love at first sight. So I had to recreate it for myself!
It is quite a simple manicure to do. Basically, you plop a drop of polish on a clean surface and swirl it around until it thickens and gets stringy. Then, you pull the 'strings' of polish across your nails to get the stripes. There you have it! Simple... but a little tedious. Worth the trouble? Definitely.
I would leave this mani like this if I could but I added top coat to seal in the design. I didn't want to because Seche Vite melted down and flattened the stripes, making them less distinct. Oh but what to do? :( The 3D effect was good while it lasted.
