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 promise...it'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?

  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 :|
