Good morning, fabulous faffers! Today I'd like to start a new segment here at Fixin To Faff, wherein I show you the nail art I create with a swatch AFTER I've shared it on Hey, Swatch It Saturdays. Today's inagural "What I Did (With It)" Wednesday will showcase how I transformed my last swatch from the Models Own Colour Chromes, Chrome Mauve. With it, I created this purple chrome and black nail art look.
How fun is that? With my base of Chrome Mauve on all nails, I added the stamping in Konad Black from Vivid Lacquer plate VL019 on my thumb, ring, and pinky nails, and added a coat of Maybelline Color Show White Splatter on my index nail to add that funky graffiti glitter look.
For my middle finger, I created a ruffian by applying two coats of Sally Hansen Velvet Texture Velveteen a few millimeters from the top of the chrome polish, giving it a halo effect. While the second coat was still wet, I placed in the purple rhinestones to finish it off. If you needed a more permanent fix, I would suggest applying them with nail glue.
As always, I would love to hear what you think, not only of this look, but of the idea of dedicating a day each week to show the nail art that happens after a swatch is done.
Hope you're all having a great week, and I'll see ya Friday, with another new feature, courtesy of some exciting news! Stay tuned!
