Happy Valentine’s Day nail art warriors! Whether you’re single or not, hope you’re having a great day doing whatever it is you like the most. For me, of course, it’s some extra time to paint my nails :) So, here’s my contribution the Edgy Valentine nail art challenge! Of course, this manicure cannot be part of the competition, it’s mostly just to challenge my creative abilities and nail art skills, namely, line work and painting small details. The hardest bit for me is to create the small identical details on each nail and to get all the proportions and symmetry right. It’s easy to do with stencils but free-hand is a real challenge, here’s the result.
Also, there was another highly secret mission that this nail design served…. Are you ready? I’m about to spill the biggest news…
I’ve been testing the NEW SoNailicious nail art brushes! That’s right, I’ve been developing a SoNailicious line of brushes for the last 8 months and they are now in the final testing stage. Why does it take 8 months? I wanted to make the perfect nail art brush that will make nail art easier for everyone. The SoNailicious range will be a dream to work with for any nail artist regardless of skill level. Sound exciting? I know, I’m pretty psyched about this project too! So that’s the big secret but let’s keep it between us, ok? There will be no “sneak peeks” on social media until we have a definite launch date. Plus, as a reward for the SoNailicious family and I’d like you, dear readers, to be the first to trial the finished product. So stay tuned!
