Another Try at Some Nail Art

I have been trying some more Nail Art lately. I thought I would show you another attempt. I saw somewhere an oil slick type of design. I can't remember where I saw it and when I tried to find it again, I couldn't find it. Basically it is created by dropping one color of the CND effects on your nail and while it is still wet applying an opposite CND effect into that one and then just moving your hand around while it dries to create an oil slick look. It almost looked like a water marbling technique without the mess. I tried it using CND effects in Jade Sparkle (I think that is the name of the green one) and an old pink Sally Hansen Prism polish. But I wasn't getting the effect I wanted, so I painted my nails with a Navy polish and then dropping these colors on my nails and patting on them. I think the end result came out pretty good, not what I set out to to, but pretty cool none the less.

Here is the Navy polish on it's own. These were done late at night so I only had the OTT light to use.


Here is with the polishes dabbed over the top. It looked like a night sky. Loved the look!



So what do you think? Yay or nay on this look?
