Fan Dry Brush Nails

This design is another quick and simple one to pull off.

I started by painting all nails in 2 coats of a deep red shade.

I then used a fan brush and a rose gold polish by Models Own called chrome rose to paint a feathery kind of pattern coming from the top corner of each nail in a diagonal direction.

The problem with this polish is that you have to mix it really well before you use it. I used this to my advantage by not mixing it very well. This meant that there was a slight colour variation in the brush strokes which added more depth to the design.

I finished the design off by placing a single black rhinestone in the top corner of each nail where the brush strokes originated from.

Matte Weathered Copper Nails

For this design I was going for a sort of weathered copper effect, but I also wanted the finish to be matte.

I started by painting all my nails in 2 coats of a metallic teal/turquoise shade.

Once this was dry I used a bronze coloured polish and a flat brush. I brushed off any excess onto some tin foil and then used the brush to dry brush an effect over the top of each nail.

I repeated this again to try and build up the effect a bit more so that there was more prominent areas of the bronze showing through.

I then finished off the design with 2 coats of a matte top coat.
