Tri Polish Challenge Day 4 - Noodles!

Hi Goddesses

Today I have some super easy and super lazy nail art for you, which I’ve called Noodles.  Sarah from Chalkboard Nails did something similar HERE, but much better, obvs :)

I used KIKO 329 Pale Grey as my base and then used a thin nail art brush to do my wiggly lines.  Hint: in all forms of life, whether you’re using a pencil, a whiteboard marker or a polish brush – if you don’t think you can do it straight, deliberately do it wiggly!  Own those wiggly lines lol.

I started with the more dominant Barry M Blood Orange from the base of the nail, wiggling out to the tips.   Originally I planned thicker lines, but I liked how the colour tapered out towards the edge.   When I picked up the KIKO 339 Cornflower, I deliberately started at the edge, and worked my way back up to the root of the nail.

What I didn’t anticipate, was that the lines would blur together, and I’d end up with smudges and lilac bits.  Not that I didn’t like the effect, I did, but it wasn’t what I was aiming for, so for the remainder of the nails I used TC between colours.

And ta da!  This is so simple.   I’d like to do this in bolder colours actually – I think this is a really easy look for when you don’t want plain nails, but you haven’t got much time.

Enjoy xx
