Now- onto today’s nails. These that I’m about to show have been sitting in my “not yet posted” folder for a while. I did them a month or two ago and just never had a good time to share them. Well, my friends, today is the day! Let’s see em!
Faux Semi Ikat Nails
How To Get These Nails:
- Base coat. 🙂
- Apply 2-3 coats of CC Factory Girl.
- Apply a coat of Seche Vite and allow your nails to dry thoroughly.
- When your nails are dry, use stamp BM 212 and Konad Special Black to stamp this design onto your nails in a random order.
- Use a toothpick or dotting tool and ChG Exotic Encounters to fill the centers of the ikat-ish design.
- When the inside spots are dry, apply a final coat of Seche Vite.
- Post these nails on Instagram and ask your friends if they look like an ikat design or like bugs. That’s what I’m gonna do anyway! Haha. My husband said they look like bugs. How lame of him. :p
Do you think these look kinda like an ikat design or do you think they look like bugs? Whatever they look like, I like them. 🙂 I like the color combination and they were fun to wear. 🙂 Let me know what you think. As always- thanks for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!! 😀
Oopy, I agree with your hubby – it’s still cool though 🙂
Haha yeah as soon as he said said that I was like ughhhh you’re right!! Someone else said that this design looked like bugs on their blog, too. I wish I could remember who it was. Anyway- bugs or not it was a fun design. 🙂 Next time I’ll add eyes! ;p
i must say i thought it was amoebas.. hahaha.. i dont think i’m using this stamp any time soon, i’m too afraid of bugs hahah
Amoebas!!! Exactly! Dang it you’re right! That’s even better than “bugs”. 🙂 Oh well- guess I’ll have to steady up my hand and try some legit ikat nails. I love them, I just think I’m gonna make a mess of them!
well.. it would take a while, but I’m sure you can do it!!
I think I’ll give them a shot! Thanks for the encouragement! 🙂
Aw this is cute! lol Amoebas! It does look like amoebas!
Thanks. 🙂 Yep- definitely amoebas. 😉
My first thought was bugs, but amoebas are apt, too! I still like them, though 🙂
Thank you! 🙂 I wonder what they’re really supposed to be… hmmm… Oh well, bugs, amoebas, whatever I like them too. 🙂
These remind me of the little scrubbing bubbles scrubber guys! But yeah, they also look like little amoebas. lol
Yes they do huh? Too bad they didn’t scrub my tub for me. I hate cleaning the bathtub/shower. I really can’t think of a worse job. Close quarters, it’s hotter than hell in the summer and gets dirty so dang fast!
haha I wish they’d scrub mine for me too, I loathe cleaning the bathroom. Seriously the worst room in the house for grodiness.
Yeah and it just gets itself dirty with all the moisture and everything in there. Ugh.
