dark purple ferns
Difficulty: intermediate- slightly difficult / 6 out of 10
You will need:
- Manhattan by NYC or some other color that is very similar.
- Rock bottom by Sally Hansen hard as nails
- mellow-crazy Claire's mood polish. It almost always shows glittery lavender. it only doesn't when it's REALLY hot out, you've been under a lot of blankets, or when under hot water.
- small brush
The reason I'm specifying brands and specific shades, is because these ones work PERFECTLY! The picture doesn't do it justice!
To start off, put a few coats (about three or, maybe even four to make sure that it is as dark as can be) of Manhattan by NYC for the background. Then put a small section in the bottom left or bottom right corners of all of your nails in rock bottom. make them all the same. Then put several little slightly curved or wavy lines in the same color coming out of that section to look a bit like a fern. Then do the same with the lavender polish, inside of the other lines, slightly smaller. Finally, put more lines in the rock bottom going between the lavender. Put some top coat on to make is shinier, and you have a masterpiece! I hope you like it
