Hues of Blues (Ode to Malika Favre)

I know it’s been a while since I’ve done a nail post, but I’m back at again.  For this mani, it was inspired by artwork by Malika Favre.  I began to head in the direction of this photo below, but I didn’t trust myself to do the grid.  So, to make it my own, I added some silver foil and I think these turned out pretty awsome.malika

Items Needed:

  • Nail art brush
  • Top Coat
  • Base Coat
  • Nail Foil
  • Acrylic paint (Light blue or White mixed with blue)

Polishes Used:

 

Step 1: After your base coat, apply two coats of a light blue polish on your nails.

Step 2: Then take a dark blue polish and make a wiggly shape on your nails.

Step 3: Using a light blue acrylic paint, paint an outline of the dark blue shapes you made.  This doesn’t have to be perfect, just wiggly.

Step 4:  Apply some silver nail foil wherever you want on the nail.

Step 5: Top everything off with your topcoat and you are all done.
