Straw Stain Nails

It's Manicure Monday! I've promised on my Blue and Silver Nails post last week that I will be posting something about my nails every first day of the week since I will be calling it "Manicure Monday". Luckily, I am keeping that promise this week! Hope I can continuously keep it in the coming weeks also (cross-fingers*) This week's nails is inspired by London Olympics because of these circles looping each other or I may say, an abstract artwork which has been a new nail trend that literally uses your nails as canvass by coloring it white and painting on it.

I will call it Straw Stain Nails since I have achieved this design by dipping a straw in colored-nail polishes and dabbing that on my nails. 

I have used a total of 6 bottles of nail polishes here: 4 colored nail polished here, a white base and a top coat.

First, paint all your nails white. I use OMG nail polish in White Out here. In case you don’t have white nail polish, you can make use of any light –colored polish where the design can still be visible. I suggest using pastels or maybe, considering using your correction fluid. Just kidding. J

Then, put some drops of colored nail polishes in a flat container, in my case I just use a small plastic bag laid down on the floor.

Take a straw and dip it into colored polish then place it on your white nails to draw on some circles. Repeat the same process with the rest of your nails until your desired amount of design have been achieved. I recommend using both sides of the straw and cutting it in small pieces because you will only need the tip for each color.

Don’t forget to add your top coat to seal in your design and add a beautiful shine on your nails.

Nail Polishes used: (L-R) O.P.I. Top Coat, Careline nail colors which I don't know the exact label because it isn't indicated, OMG nail polishes in Bikini, First Date and White Out

I hope you have liked this mini tutorial. I am not a pro but maybe I could post a better one in the future.
