Today you have a look I made playing around with two of the colours that came in the Julep Gem Collection: Echo and Jasmine! I don't know what's up these days, but I can't seem to sit down and make a "normal" looking mani design these days... Everything is tacky and glittery and wonderful. I actually made a design the other day that I labelled "The Tackiest Mani In The World. Legit." Maybe it will see the light of day eventually, maybe not.
This whole thing started off with a base of Essie Blanc, and when that dried I used some tape to block off sections for most of my nails, and made a laser pattern for full coverage on my accent nail. The lovely purple/blue shade is Julep Jasmine, and the pink is Julep Echo. Echo didn't turn out AT ALL like what I expected, but that's probably because the base was white. (We'll see what it looks like without undies in my upcoming Gem Collection swatches!) The black lines were then free-handed with Quo by ORLY Instant Artist in Black.
The finished look is kind of tacky, but I still kind of love it! You can't go wrong with some basic colour blocking. :)
Let me know what you think!! Thanks for visiting. xx
