From The Archive: Floral Damask Nails

Before I started this blog I uploaded lots of nail art videos to Youtube, so I thought I'd share some of them with you every now and then.

One of my favourites is this floral design painted entirely in black over a duochrome polish.  In real life the effect is stunning, but sadly on camera it was super hard to pick up.  As a result the photos kinda suck....even running around the house for 20 minutes taking snaps in every light condition at all angles wasn't enough to capture it.

I used a Stargazer polish for the background, number 307, with black acrylic paints for the details.  I love the finished look but if you're not into such dark colours, try painting the flowers in white over a lighter background.
