Netted Nails

Standard

This week I experimented with using a net to create a pattern on my nails. First I painted my all my nails alternating between silver and black. I just chose these two colours at random. Next I took an old netted glove bought from the $2 shop and cut it so that it could be laid out flat.

Now comes the experimental part. I tried applying polish to to net first and then pressing the net down onto my nail. This worked ok for the silver pressed onto the black but my  black nail polish for some reason did not want to transfer from the net to my nail nicely.

 So next I tried placing the net over the top of my nail with out any polish on it and then using the nail polish brush I just dabbed the polish into the holes. This worked out much much better! So I did this for all of my nails, using the alternate colours to what I first painted my nails. That it I using silver polish over the black polish and black polish over the silver polish.

The end result kind of reminds me of a giraffe’s spots, which I find really funny! If I had used brown and yellow it would have made the perfect giraffe pattern. As always I finished it off with a top coat and for this one I needed to clean around my nails a little with an ear bud and some nail polish remover. Enjoy!
