I think my black nail art pen is ready for nail polish heaven... it's a bit gloopy and made this mani difficult! Ahhhh!
I first painted my nails in Hobart Place by Nails Inc which is more of a pastel orange, then sponged Leighton Denny's Sunburst over 3/4 of my nail as that's a brighter orange...
I then went on to sponge Hepburn by Leighton Denny onto my nail too which is a shimmery coral:
I used my black nail art pen to swipe a stripe on the diagonal at the base of the nail then at the tip; colouring the tip part in solidly with the black:
Then between these two areas I created curved stripes and added white dots to the thick part of the black:
And that was that. I like that the coral shimmer shows through; I think it adds an extra dimension to the nail, without it I think it would have been too flat.
All in all, the perfectionist in me isn't happy with this mani but on the other hand it's still cute and think you can see what it's supposed to be at least!!
