Paint All The Nails Presents Monochrome
Hello my dears! Today I have another installment of the Paint All The Nails link-up to share with you! This month the theme was monochrome and it was decided that we’d just do black and white monochrome.
I wasn’t feeling very inspired this time around and I couldn’t decide what to do for so long! I finally decided to do a little free-hand art that was really basic. I was inspired by this incredible mani from iparallaxe and this marble image:
I wanted to do something different from my typical watermarble and the stamping marble I’ve been doing a lot of lately so I went with a free-hand design. There wasn’t much to creating this design. I started with a base color using Zoya “Carey”. Then I just haphazardly did organic looking diagonal stripes starting from the dark colors and moving to the light colors, sometimes cleaning off my brush and sometimes not. There really was no rhyme or reason, sometimes I overlapped colors, sometimes I didn’t. I worked on each nail until I was satisfied with the marbly veins and moved onto the next.
- Base color – Zoya “Carey”
- Marble colors – Mischo Beauty “Run The World”, KBShimmer “Black Pearl”, RBL “An Accidental Interloper”, Habit Cosmetics “Midnight Cowboy”, OPI “Silver Canvas”, Orly “Decoded”, Rica “Whiteout”, Deborah Lippmann “Edge of Glory”, Essie “Pure Perfetion”, KShimmer “Dust in The Bottle”, Zoya “Carey”, Zoya “Seraphina”
- Other tools – paint brush used for nail art
Meh, I’m not thrilled with how this turned out but such is life and you can’t win them all. I hope next month I’m feeling a little more inspired.
Even so, I can’t wait to see what the other talented ladies came up with for the prompt. I’m sure they’ll have some fabulous designs so make sure that you visit their blogs below!
