Swirly Nimbus

Painted Fingertips | Swirly nimbus

Hi everyone!

I was struggling to think of a good idea for some nail art so I decided to turn to my Pinterest inspiration board and found this fun nimbus look topped with stamped swirls by Globe & Nail. I decided I’d do something similar but I wanted to freehand the swirls rather than stamping them. The thicker lines resulted in quite a different look but I like it!  Painted Fingertips | Swirly nimbusI started off with a nimbus base (applying dots of polish watered down with acetone, using an earbud). For the base, I used Tip Top Fairy Dust, Tip Top Melting Marshmallows, Sinful Colors Amethyst, and Sally Hansen Bejeweled. I then used white acrylic paint and a small brush to paint on the swirls.

I added a coat of Essence Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch over all my nails to make the white a little less harsh. This is an extremely sheer pastel purple polish so it’s not very visible, but it did tone down the white a little. To finish it off, I added a coat of Sinful Colors Opal Glitter on my ring finger.

Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch is scented so I couldn’t stop sniffing my nails! The main thing though is how they look and luckily I was happy with that too 🙂
