Try Something Tuesday-Fan Brush Effect

I've been seeing these manis around a lot recently and really liked the look of them but had no idea how to do one! I went on Youtube and searched for 'fan brush manis' and found a couple of tutorial videos and it turns out it's a lot easier than I was expecting it to be! (The best one I found was this one by DearNatural62) As I'd got some fan brushes in the last set I bought from t'Ebay I thought I'd give it a shot!

My base colour is 3 coats of Revlon-Blue Lagoon which is a gorgeous baby blue shot through with silver shimmer. The colours I used over the top were Sally Hansen-Fairy Teal and Rimmel-Sunshine. I knew that these wouldn't blend together to create new colours in the same way that some do (see this mani by My Nail Graffiti for an excellent example) but still thought that they looked really cool together against the pale blue base.

I really like this! It was so quick and easy to do, even on all 10 nails! Definitely the quickest mani I've managed on myself for some time (less than half an hour from base coat to top coat!) which is good. I really love doing nail art but it doesn't half take up some time usually! It got pretty messy but I've cleaned up as best I can and I also have ordered some acetone from Amazon so that  I should be able to clean up even better in future.

I'm really happy with this, I love that each nail is different and it looks so cool! This may have just become my go-to mani when I need something quick and easy.

I also realised that I'd inadvertently matched my nails to my bedding, haha!

That's all for now, see you soon!
