Scale Art

Revlon Brilliant Strength - 030, Models Own- Beths Blue, 17 - Holographic, Models Own -Mystic Mauve, No7 - Totally Teal, Black Models Own nail art pen.
1. Apply a metallic blue base coat and let dry.
2. Using your make up sponge stipple on patches of blues, lilacs, silvers and greens ( preferably metallic also)
3. Using a black nail art pen draw on loops to create your scale effect. Let dry & top coat.
I loveee how this turned out, and people definitely recognise what it is as soon as they see it. Got lots of comments on this design and I love how it glistens and reflects different colours in different lights. You could definitely go for a different colour scheme maybe more pinks or golds and beiges. Dont forget to send me pics if you try this out!! :) Have a lovely weekend gorgeous people!

  3. You always have such nice nails! I have the Models Own nail polish in Beth's Blue so I might try and give this a go. I'm sure it won't turn out as good as yours though! X
