Happy Monday, reader! My look today is an experiment; I’m using a fan brush for nail art for the first time ever! I bought a cheap drugstore nail art kit just for the fan brush in it, and I’ve finally gotten around to using it. For this look, I used a faded bottle of Sinful Colors’s Dream On, Kleancolor’s Neon Orange, and Island Girl’s Aloha Paradise.
I started this look off with a good base of Dream On. Like I said, this polish faded dramatically. It was once a vibrant neon purple that became the coral you (kind of) see here. Even when I got this polish, I wasn’t a huge fan of it; it takes all of three coats to cover all the streaks and leaves behind a cheap-looking flat finish. I love Sinful Colors polishes to death but this one was never my favorite.
I originally didn’t include Aloha Paradise in this look, but ultimately, the look needed something for contrast. Dream On and Neon Orange are both on the sheer side; obviously the coverage builds, but for nail art, something with good coverage is ideal. It didn’t look like anything without the teal to liven it up. After that, I just kind of brushed the polish back and forth over the nail until I started getting dry brush strokes. It looks amazing up close like this when you can see the brushy details, but from far away, it just looks like a brown mess.
Sinful Colors and Kleancolor are sold in stores. I found Island Girl in Hawaii.
I love the overall look! I’m surprised the color faded so drastically!
This is such a pretty look! I adore the color combo.
I like this look, seems like a sunset.
This is a cool effect! I love the look of this and I swear I have seen some fabric that resembles this. <3
I love this, it’s such a cool look!
I had no idea Dream On faded! I wonder if I still have my old bottle…..
This is a pretty fun look, especially with the macro!
It looks like a neat art piece you would see at the Cummer!
Oh man, I love the Cummer! I haven’t been in ages though. We should set up a trip!
You are a true artist! This is stunning.
I love this look! It is fun to blend the colors this way.
I love the colors you used! I can see the difference colors from the whole hand pic, totally not a brown mess.
This is so pretty!! The blend is flawless!!!
