Nail Art #5 - Patchwork Pastels

I recently saw this nail design on Obession Lacquer blog - I really loved it so thought I'd try it out for myself!

I began by painting two coats of white on my nails - this is to allow to colours on top to show up really bright and pop


Using a sponge, dab a baby blue nail varnish onto your nails in random patterns until your desired look is achieved.


Repeat the same process with a light pink in the white areas ensuring to blend it into the blue. You'll notice the colours mixing and making a purple creating a third colour on your nails (which saves you from having to add in purple later)


As you can see it can get a little messy, so you may want to clean around your nails with a cotton bud soaked in nail varnish remover.


Apply a top coat to protect your design & taadaah!

  8. Awww great job!!! Lovely to see you've tried it out, love the colours. I tend to use a really tiny piece of ripped up sponge with tweezers. Makes the clean up process sooo much easier, although it can be quite fiddly.

    Love Nails. Love Obsession-Lacquer.
