New 31 Day Challenge: Day 17 - A New To You Technique

The "New To You Technique" that I decided to try is the Fan Brush Technique.  I have been wanting to try this since I first saw it.  Some of the manis that I have seen using this technique are awesome!  Mine...not so much! :)

I couldn't decide which polishes to use, so I randomly picked 2 butter LONDON's.  After closing my eyes and grabbing, I ended up with Bossy Boots and Union Jack Black.

2 coats of each.


My fan brush:


My results, with HK Girl.


All you do is pick up some polish with your brush and then drag it across your nail.


I dragged from each side for better coverage.



I'm not sure how I feel about this.  It kind of looks cool and then it looks bad.  I like the dragged line look but, I don't know, something just seems off about it.  Maybe I need to try it with other colors!

  2. I've tried to do this several times and I just can't get it to look right. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Maybe my brush isn't made from the right material.

  3. I love the colours you used for the nails. I'm not sure if im that keen with the colours of your accent nail. I guess i like the other combination better!

  7. Good job! I have done a mani like this before and I used acrylic paint and my fan brush clumped together, so I made sure I had a bit of paint on my brush and then went over my nail from both sides.

  9. Dark on light color looks great, the other combo not so much. Maybe that's your concern?
