Continuing with the 31 Day Challenge for 2018. We’ve hit Day 06’s Violet prompt. For this I chose to do a fluid art mish-mash which I named Purple Panic. [Explore entries on Instagram #31DC2018 ]
I named this the Purple Panic Fluid Nail Art, cos I used an array of violet and purple polish and had no idea how I was going to combine them at first, but time was escaping. But decided on an abstract fluid art set. It’s been a little while since I have had time for one since I lost my hard drive… It felt right. And after seeing Amy, Queen of the Fluid Nails (@nailsandstuff_here) doing one every week, motivated me to crack out my bottles.
I normally do fluid art on a silicone mat and then transfer it to my nails as a cut-out decal. This time though I painted straight on the nail with transforming top coats. It still looks pretty fun, but I do prefer the effect that you can get from using a mat to manipulate the polish to get the look that you want. It is a larger space and you can play around with it more. You can see the cells on these are quite small in comparison to mat made nails.
If I get a chance, I’ll try slip a better version of these later into the challenge – but done on a mat. I don’t dislike these, but they aren’t the best ones I’ve done.
And that wraps up my 31DC2018 Day 06: Violet – Purple Panic Fluid Art mani.
