Blue Brush Stroke Nail Art

Hello beautiful! I've been thoroughly enjoying my birthday month with lots of activities from beach outings to barbeques and movie dates. So I'm back today with some simple nail art perfect for you DIY'ers that are not ambidextrous. The brush stroke technique is quite simple and can achieve numerous looks just by changing the colors used.


Nail Tutorial:
1. Paint the nails two coats of Kleancolor Catch Me and allow to dry fully.
2. Using a black polish, wipe off the brush really clean along the edge of the bottle and then apply what is left onto the initial polish base. Just randomly apply on spots on the nail bed. Brush the strokes in one direction only for this look.
3. Repeat with different colors; I used grey, teal and lilac.
4. Seal in with your favorite top coat.

What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush. I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…
