The Digit-al Dozen does New and Improved - Day 2 - Dry Brush

Hi everyone! For day 2 of New and Improved week I've done a dry brush mani! 

I have done dry brush manis before but I've never actually blogged one. This is mainly because they are not my favourite type of nail art. I often like the look on other people but hadn't found much love for it on myself yet. I think this dry brush mani has completely changed my opinion. It is an improved version of the past dry brush manis I have done and that is because of the colours.

What I typically don't like about dry brush manis is the grungy look and often contrasting colours. So I set about creating a new and improved dry brush that I might like more. So I went for very 'me' colours to do that. 

I started out my mani with 2 squishy coats of OPI Super Cute in Pink from the Hello Killy collection (a lovely gift from my friend Jen from My Nail Polish Obsession when we met up recently). Super Cute in Pink is an orchid crelly which is opaque in two coats with a super shiny squishy finish. The formula was really nice.

I then used Pipe Dream Polish V.I.P. Pass (A Night in Vegas Cremes) and Harlequin (Street Carnival Collection) for the dry brush, using short, random strokes of colour all over my nails. I then added a touch of glitter using OPI Starry-Eyed for Dear Daniel (also from the Hello Kitty Collection) using the same method. I finished everything off with topcoat as always.

I succeeded in doing myself a dry brush mani that I actually really love! I love the girly feel and the subtle effect using all pinks and purples, and of course the touch of sparkle. I hope you like it as much as I do!

  9. Looks great! I hadn't tried this method until this week either; it has been good to get out of our comfort zone (me anyway). I liked this; it was pretty simple to do and provides some base interest.
