The Festivals season is slowly starting and getting your "Hippie/Boho" style shine through is a must for these occasions. Ethnic inspired designs are an excellent way to do that, so today I'm wearing ethnic patterns on my nails for the Nail Crazies Unite Challenge "Hippie/Boho"!
This is a relatively quick manicure that requires a certain patience and a rather steady hand (not that I have one, but I DO try hard!). I decided to use the colours from OPI Fiji Collection for this manicure, all except the black stamping polish of course.
- So I've started painting two coats of OPI Coconuts over OPI, a gorgeous neutral nude shade that is an absolutely must-have this season (see the swatch here).
- I waited for it to dry well and then I stamp the Ethnic designs on each nail using the "reverse stamping technique.
- For achieving this look I used the MoYou London Stamping plate Explorer collection #27 and Born Pretty Store stamping polish black.
- I picked the images with a clear stamper and then filled it in with a thin brush and the colours
OPI Exotic birds don't tweet (yellow),
OPI Is that a spear in your pocket (teal),
OPI Living on the Bula-vard (red),
OPI Super Trop-i-cal-i-fiji-istic (blue).
