Nude Swirl

This is a nude polish that I made a while back with pink and gray. 1/4 cool  red, 1/2 white and then add in 1/4 black very slowly to get a sort of grayed-out I should have taken step-by-step photos but I just painted the nails using the technique I showed in my Swirl Tutorial a while back. I dropped some white into the mixed polish and swirled it onto my nails.

It kind of reminds me of blueberry yogurt. I don’ t think it works perfectly with my skin tone, but I’m always ready for a little out-of-the-ordinary polish jobs!

By the way, ladies and gents, I am taking a little trip to the mountains this weekend, so I may not have any new goodies to show you until Monday. Unfortunately, heavy rain is predicted, so I think the birdwatching/bike riding/hiking  is going to be a bust.

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.

    Your nails look marbled in these pictures! I’m going to have to figure out how to work this on my own.

    I used to have handled soup bowls that looked just like your nails. I love your nails. The polish look so neat!
