There’s a new kid in town! One of my best friends got a baby and it’s a boy! Such a handsome little guy, thought I’d do a blue themed nail art for the baby! Good way to use some blue nail polishes because otherwise I hardly ever wear them. Once again I used striper tape (a lot) to make this nail art. I’m happy with how it turned out! :-)
I started by polishing my nails with ‘Holiday blues’ from Ciaté. My indexfinger and middle fingers are in white using ‘white hot love’ from Rimmel all in two layers. When everything was dry I taped the fingers that were polished in white. I first applied the tape diagonally in two directions which made squares. Then I taped them horizontally to make triangles from the squares. I used a smaller brush to fill in the triangles using different shades of blue. I didn’t fill in all the triangles and I like how It turned out. It looks like a mosaic. The colors of blue I used are from OPI: ‘Keeping Suzi at bay’, ‘My pal Joey’, ‘The sky's my limit’ and ‘show us your tips’. I also used ‘Holiday blues’, the same as on my pink, ring finger and thumb.
I really like the result, this would look great using other colors too or combining different colors. But in blue it’s perfect to celebrate the new born boy! :-)
