Summer Challenge: Day 45 - Mani Done With A Straw

I knew this mani was going to be a pain in the butt!  I tried to do a straw mani months ago and ended up a frustrated mess.  Did I get frustrated today???? YES!  My design did not turn out as nice and neat as I would've of liked but I decided to embrace the mess.  I now see my design as more of an abstract.

I started with 1 coat of Milani White on the Spot.

Color-wise, I decided to do a purple ombre.  I have 3 Barry M's that I knew would be perfect for the design.  I started with Indigo.  I swear that this is a dark purple! My camera did not want to pick up the purple, so instead it looks blue.  I's purple!  You can also see my mistakes, but that's okay! Embrace the chaos!

Next was Bright Purple.

Last was Berry Ice Cream.

Topped off with 2 coats of HK Girl.

This is what I wanted all of my nails to look like.

So what do you think...Abstract? or Total Mess?

  1. I have been wanting to try this technique. I think to style doesn't have o be perfect so I love it.

  2. i dont think it looks a mess at all! i like how the colors came out, it looks cool. i feel your frustration though! i cant get the straw method to work.. it winds up leaving the entire circle blob of polish lol.

  3. Hello!Love your nails :)

  6. Abstract! I love it! The colors look perfect together!

  7. Chaotic abstraction! :D
    I tried that just yesterday and couldn't get one full circle on my nails no matter how hard I tried! I guess my nails must be more curved than I thought they were :|
