Today I am sharing this manicure with you, using a technique I'd like to call Sponged Spots. I used a bunch of pretty spring-like colored nail polishes, overtop of an off-white base color to create this pretty design. To get the fields of color, I used a cosmetics sponge. I tore the sponge apart into tiny pieces, about 3-5 mm in size, and used one sponge piece for each color. Holding the tiny piece of sponge with tweezers, I simply put some polish onto the sponge, and used that to dot on patches of color onto the base. I started with one color, dotted that a few times on each nail, before moving on to the next color. In the end I ended up with this pretty, abstract, almost flowery-looking nail art.
I dag har jeg denne manikyren å vise dere, hvor jeg brukte en teknikk som jeg vil kalle Sponged Spots. Jeg brukte mange fine, vårlige farger av neglelakk over en kremfarget baselakk, for å lage dette fine designet. For å få til de små feltene med farge, brukte jeg en sminkesvamp. Jeg dro svampen fra hverandre i mange bittesmå biter, omtrent 3-5 mm i størrelse, og brukte en av bitene til hver farge. Jeg holdt de bittesmå bitene med en pinsett, dyppet dem i litt farget neglelakk, og laget et par små dotter med farge på hver negl. Etter å ha dottet på alle fargene endte jeg opp med dette fine, abstrakte, nesten blomsteraktige mønsteret på neglene.
