Hey hey! It’s Artsy Wednesday again! This time the theme is blue nails, and here’s what my design looks like in the sun:
I first painted my nails with ulta3 Blue Marlin (medium blue creme) on the right, and a franken I made from Spring Shower and a few drops of black on the left. Then I taped a zigzag and painted it with China Glaze DV8, a gorgeous teal linear holo which the lovely Alanna from Pretty Purple Polish bought for me 🙂 I finished with a coat of Poshe topcoat. In the shade:

This looks great! 🙂 DV8 is sooo pretty! Can’t wait to use it. I swatched my Ulta3’s Cocoa was a surprise favourite for me.
DV8 is amazing! 🙂 What a coincidence, I’m wearing Cocoa right now… it’s pretty and elegant, but now the sun’s come out and I wish I went for TMI like I originally planned!
ahhh i love this! so pretty.
I like this blue. I have DV8. I might need to try this! Awesome!
DV8 is amazing! I love teal.
Cute mani!! Love the zigzag
Those nails ROCK!!
Thanks! 🙂 Rock you like a hurricane!!
soo nice!!! love the blue and the zigzag!!
Hell yeah – so freakin cool! I would totally wear something like that 😀
I love geometric designs! I think the taping was actually unnecessary, next time I’m just going to wing it lol! Taing takes forever 🙁
This is an AWESOME way to use holo polishes!
I was surprised by how well the holo effect turned out, I was worried that the zigzag would be too small to see the rainbow, but it worked out 🙂
This is so beautiful! I freakin’ LOVE blue, and this design is so cool! 😀
Thanks! DV8 is so awesome, can’t wait to do a full mani with it!
Oh, so fresh, spring-y, crisp and delicious – very, very nice 🙂
Haha – but it’s late summer/early autumn here! More of a late summer, I’m-missing-the-beach mani 🙂
Wow, this is totally rad! I love the holo in the middle!
Thanks! It didn’t quite turn out how I wanted it to, but I still love it!
These are fantastic! 🙂 Well done x
I loooove this! That zig zag looks awesome! And anything holo makes me drool! Dv8 is going on my Wishlist!!
Holo is awesome! I have holo on today as well but the sun is gone so it’s blah 🙁
Love this look! DV8 is amazing ♥
It is! I’m such a big fan of DV8, I think it’s my favourite out of the holos I own!
Love it! So pretty.
Thanks! The colours are really nice, <3 CG and ulta3!
it looks amazing, something like this I could wear everyday 😀
Thanks! I got a lot of nice comments on it from people I bumped into, I wore it for 3 days which is quite long for me! 🙂
i really need to try taping but i am scared i’ll mess it up. this looks amazing! x
It’s a lot simpler than you’d think! Just make sure the bottom layer is dry, there aren’t any gaps in the bits stuck down, and you peel off the tape quickly – that’s it!
Great job :))
