You might remember that I briefly showed you three different nail art designs in my recent post about the Frankie watch from JORD, but I didn’t show you many detailed pictures of the nails or tell you how I did them. Well, today I’ve decided to show you the first of those 3 and talk about it a little! On the topic of that recent post – if you haven’t grabbed your gift card for $25 off a JORD watch yet, you can get it here.
Although it wasn’t my original intention, the moment these nails were done, they made me think of royalty with their gorgeous purple background. The base I used was Rimmel Baby Bellini. It’s gorgeous – I loved the whole Cocktail Colour collection from Rimmel.
I wanted to do a textured checkered pattern on top of that, and instead of using striping tape I decided to just to it freehand. It isn’t as precise as using tape, but it is a lot faster and in this case I actually like the looser look. I used OPI Liquid Sand in Solitaire and Tiffany Case. I also added a dot of Solitaire at the base of each nail.
I just loved these and that purple base really seems to glow from within! What do you think?
