Day 163) Nail art outline

Nail arts with outlines are there quite some time now and maybe even on their retour again.
I'm not really into outlines, especially those with a black outline and inner nude colour. It looks like you have a very huge health problem I think :-/
I do like the more classy ones with matte and glossy, gold and silver or the more cartoon ones.
Today I've tried to make my own unique outline nails. I hope you like them!

I created a colorful outline using 6 colours of nail polish:

  1. Bourjois 1 Seconde - 27 Green fizz
  2. Essence Colour & Go - 133 Oh my glitter!
  3. Catrice Ultimate Nail Lacquer - 02 Pimp My Shrimp
  4. Etos quick dry nailpolish - lightblue
  5. Catrice Ultimate Nail Lacquer - 27 The Pinky And The Brain
  6. Essence Colour & Go - 137 Wanna be your sunshine
You don't have to worry about the inner side of your nail. This will be covered soon. Just make sure your outline is neat.

Then I painted the inner side of the nail with a black nail polish, following the shape of my nails (Catrice Ultimate Nail Lacquer - 39 Black To The Routes). In this step you'll create your outline.
You can keep the nail art like this, but I had two reasons not to:
  1. I thought the black was too dark compared to the bright colours of the outline
  2. I wanted to try my new nail polish on a black background (Kleancolor Nail Lacquer - 234 Chunky Holo Purple), which is a holographic glitter nail polish.
Too bad the holo effect isn't well shown on the picture. Hopefully I can make a better one using daylight because I really love this nail polish and the holo really is there!
