I tried it with tape like she suggests (even Scotch brand!) but it didn't work out so great. I had some polish slip under the edges so the lines didn't look perfectly straight. I used OPI Ski Teal We Drop, and China Glaze Flyin' High and Recycle.
|I thought it looked OK, but I knew I could do better...|
If you know me at all, you know that fudged lines just won't do for me. I HAD to re-do this mani and do it right!
So I tried again. This time, Mr. Lacquerish let me use his airbrushing supplies. Something called "Frisket." It's for masking off areas you don't want the airbrush paint to get to. Seemed prefect for my application and it WAS!
Check it out:
|This time worked a LOT better!|
I used OPI Suzy Skis in the Pyrenees, OPI Suzy Says Feng Shui, OPI Lucern-tainly Look Marvelous (for the ring finger accent only) and China Glaze Awaken.
|My ring finger has OPI Lucertainly Look Marvelous instead of the blue (accent nail).|
The second time around I used Out The Door top coat. It's similar to Seche in that it's a quick dry. It doesn't dry quite as fast, but it's much thinner than the goopy mess that is my Seche Vite right now.
I think it worked a lot better in the end, although I did need to wait a bit longer between colors for it do try completely.
So, waddya think, guys? Have you seen the patchwork mani's popping up, yet? What would be your favorite color combo?
