Brush Strokes Mani with Essence Dress For A Moment and Orly Gumdrop!

Hey there =]!

As much as I loooooove glitters, I think it's time that some pretty creme and shimmer polishes are featured now that Glitzy Christmas is over =] I used Essence Dress For A Moment (I can't remember how many coats...all I know is this polish is really opaque =P!) and Orly Gumdrop to create this really cool stroke mani. I chose my biggest, fluffiest nail art brush, dipped it in Gumdrop, and used light brush strokes to create this look. See for yourself =]!










I love this technique so much! I don't think I learned it from anywhere in particular, but I also don't think I came up with it =P  Please let me know if you remember someone else posting a tutorial about this technique, I'd love to see! Keep in mind that it's different from a watercolor mani because I used a dry brush...I don't even know exactly what to call this technique...hmm. Whatever it's called, it's gorgeous =]! I hope you loved it, see ya later =]!

Please vote in the poll in the upper right-hand sidebar =]!

  11. Thanks ladies =D! This technique is so fun and easy, I hope you all give it a try! Maybe I'll do this same one again someday, but add flowers on the ends of the green since they look like stems (thanks for pointing that out, TrailerHood Chic!) =D
