Hi guys! I know that I tend to post swatches on Saturdays for my Simple Swatch Saturday series on IG but I've been working on the prompts for the Crumpet's Nail Tarts 31 Day Challenge (#31dc2015) and since I'm already almost two weeks behind I figured it was time I started posting them. Read on after the break to see what I did!

Day 1 prompt is to follow a tutorial. I used a video tutorial by cutepolish for making freehand argyle nail art. It's really simple, although it does require a steady hand. I started with two coats of a light pink creme, Doll Face from Chick Nail Polish. Then I used single chevron nail vinyls from Glam My Mani (these where previously provided for me to review) to create the grey triangles. After, I used a stripping brush dipped in thinned white polish (White Out from Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear) to create the white stripes. Finally, I topped it all with once coat of As A Matte A Fact from Serum No.5.

I really love Serum No. 5 As A Matte A Fact, it's a matte top coat with flakies in it! These aren't holographic or color shifting flakies, they are slightly iridescent however and add a nice subtle shimmer.

What do you guys think? Have you done argyle print nail art before?

  1. Such a pretty, feminine design! And your freehand is perfect! Thanks for the heads up on that Serum No. 5 topper. From your description, it sounds like the matte counterpart to CG Fairy Dust! Off to buy it ASAP.

    1. It's actually really easy, especially if you use a vinyl or stripping tape to help with the different color triangles. The hardest part is then free handing the thin lines.
