For today's NOTD (Nails of the Day.) I was experimenting with different types of nail polish and somehow came up with this little gem.I really love the way it looks - a little 'big cat'-ish.The base polish I used was somewhat reflective,hence why it looks slightly patchy from the flash on my camera!
How I created these nails.
This varnish creation was created using a total of four polishes.First,lay down a OPI base coat on your clean nails and then apply one coat of a light Golden shade.I used "Queen of Hearts" from the Disney Villains collection!
After letting this dry for a couple of minutes (or using my hairdryer trick),apply one thin coat of a black crackle nail polish.For this manicure,I used a Models Own Smash-Up varnish.You can gently blow on the nail after you've applied this coat to seperate the cracks even more,for a spaced out effect.
Where needed,paint on another layer and then leave the design to dry for about 4-5 minutes - then put on a top coat (OPI) and you're all finished!
This polish design was pretty easy to create,but getting the balance of crackle polish just right can be hard to master,I give this a 3/5 difficulty rating! Try it out for yourself!
I hope you enjoy painting this creation.
