Support clean water + inspired nail art

 

In honor of Aveda Earth Month 2015, I have created a nail design that blends several blue hues. The featured base color is CND Vinylux in Creekside. I layered with CND Vinylux  in Indigo Frock and Maybelline Color Show in Shock Wave. 

Using a few custom cut makeup brushes I had lying around and placing drops of polish on aluminum foil….it was super simple to create this wispy look by layering the shades over the dry base color.

The holiday season keeps my manicures interesting. This week I chose to go a bit further into freehand. Starting with CND Vinylux cream puff – a crisp white for the base. Secondly, I used a thin nail art brush to swipe a custom blue/gray Vinylux shade in a crescent shape along the side. If you use light motions while the white coat is still wet you’ll get a more abstract effect, repeat with metallic gold. I did both the side colors one nail at a time. All topped off with the Vinylux weekly topcoat!
