SWIRL NAILS

I rec'd a great request for me to try out some swirl nail art from my fellow blogger Katee from e-polishblog. I tried this out Friday night, and was pretty impressed with the results. I was really trying to get pictures up Sat., but we had some unexpected guests this weekend, so I just waited until Monday morning.

It was fairly easy to do, the technique took a couple of nails for me to get down. I kept mixing the colors instead of swirling them. You can find the tutorial for how to do the swirl nail art here. I tried out two different "sets" of colors on each hand.


For the first set of colors I used all Color Club nail polishes in Limelight (neon green), Power Play (pink) & Screamin Fuchsia (neon pink). I then used one coat of China Glaze - Fairy Dust, a great glitter polish. I thought after I added the Fairy Dust that it made my nails look like sand art! You know the sand art where you picked out a bottle and then added layers of different colored sand in the bottle, well that what it reminded me of.

For the other hand I used Zoya - Delilah (red glitter), Love My Nails - Black Rage (black creme) & Black Radiance - Tease (gold shimmer). These colors didn't seem to swirl as well. It might have been in part because of the black. This black is so watery and clear, it isn't a very good black at all. Also the Black Radiance tends to be a little on the watery side and usually takes at least two coats to get to opaque. However, I was still pleased with the results. I used one coat of China Glaze - Golden Enchantment, which is the gold version of Fairy Dust.

Katee - Thanks for the request. I had alot of fun doing this! I would love to hear if anyone tries this out for them selves and see any pictures you take of it.
If anyone else has any request I would love to hear them and try them out - so please send them my way!
