Some time ago I purchased nail art brushes in the hope that I would be able to create all sorts of nail art. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite work out like that. Using a brush is a completely different ball game, nothing like just using a pen to write your name (which I naively thought). So I left them in my nail bag and would think about them from time to time, but barely ever touched them.
I decided it was time to bite the bullet, get out my nail brushes, and by hook or by crook I would create a manicure using at least one brush! Whilst talking to Kitsu about other Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear colours, she pointed out two shades which I loved and thought would look great together as a half moon mani…I remembered the conversation and thought that I would do a freehand half moon mani (that’s how my mind works!) and this was the result.
I used Coral Rose by H&M which is a very deep Orange with Barry M’s Gold Foil to do the half moons and dots. I practiced painting halfmoons on a piece of paper first to try and get the motion and how to hold the brush just right. It’s not as neat as if I had used guides but I hope to improve my brush work some day!
