2 Way Nail Pen – eBaySeche Vite Topcoat
I was doodling the other day and ended up at this paisley design. I apologise for the pink that’s gone astray onto my skin I was just having a little artistic sesh on my 10 mini blank canvases and ended up liking the design so much I decided to post it.
Paisley is an old traditional pattern that was printed on clothing. It reached the western areas in the late 18th century and has since re-surfaced in different forms. It pops up year after year at many high street stores.
I am beyond in love with how it looks as on nails. The design I did on my four fingers consists of a tear drop shape with a flicked end inside a larger version of the same shape. I then added a few dots to the centre and scalloped edges around the outside. I added a small ‘tail’ at the pointed end to complete the look. On some fingers I did a circular version done in the same way as the tear drop pattern.
On a couple of nails I did one large tear drop only and on the others I did half a tear drop and half a circular design to make it look like it flowed rather than the same thing on every nail.
On my thumb I tried out an easier way to achieve the paisley look for people that don’t have as much time/patience or a steady hand. I started the design in the same way by doing one tear drop inside another. Instead of doing the scalloped edge which is what takes the most time, I went round the outer edge with dots. They must be touching the line and fairly close together to look like a scalloped border. I also did the same on the circles too. It still gives the same paisley effect but it is much quicker and easier to do.
