Alright, so there is a tiny bit of pink in it, but on the whole it is not a valentines day design.
First step was to paint my nails, I chose this slightly grey colour of RubyWing polish that changes to a darker shade when cold, really cold.
On top of this I began layering the colours with a long thin brush known as a striping brush. Here I began with a blue colour adding a few lines of differing length on each nail.
I then added purple to the mix, this colour was a little darker than the shade I envisioned for this design but overall not a bad fit.
Next was the turn of some pink polish. One thing that is great about a design like this is that every nail is different to you can't really go wrong. If a line isn't a thick as you'd like you can go over it. Or if you go too far on one line, no one is going to notice.
Then instead of topping with a glossy topcoat I opted for a subtler matte topcoat. Here is a post I did comparing three of the lower brand matte topcoats, in order to find that the Barry M one was my favourite.
I got quite a few compliments this week from these nails too, and they were so simple to create. You can easily customise to colours that suit you too. Just chose a light base colour to be sure that all of your lines will show up as well as they can.
