Abstract Tweed

Hi everyone!  I just realized I haven't done a tweed patterned mani yet - I grabbed some of my fave KBShimmer cremes and got to work!!

I started off with two coats of KBShimmer My Life's Porpoise, followed by one coat of SV.

To add some subtle fabricesque texture, I dry brushed on KBShimmer Stonewashed down and across the nail.

Using a striping brush, I added my thread lines with KBShimmer Pansy-Monium, Honeydew List, and Eclipse.  I finished with one coat of SV.

I really like the final look.  It's not traditional tweed, which I love!
I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!

  2. Hi Nicole, I enjoy your choice of colors for this mani! And, the technique looks easy enough for those of us (me) who are nail art "challenged"!
