An Assortment of Monday Blues

Today I've got an assortment of nail art to show you for this Monday Blues. You know me and my love of painting each nail differently so I went with that theme when I sat down to do these nails.

I started off with 2 coats of Essie's Mesmerize. This has to be one of my all time favourite blues. It's a little dusty and well I just love it! I'll go over how I did each nail below.

Thumb: Using a nail art brush and Sally Hansen's Celeb City I painted on a lightning bolt pattern. Then with a striping brush and Wet n Wild's Black Creme created the two black lines. 
Pointer: With a striper brush and Celeb City I painted on strokes along the side going in, on both sides of my nail. Then with a dotting tool and CC created some dots down the center of my nail. Then with BC I added the black lines over the silver and a few more dots in the center. 
Middle: I added a coat of Candy Lacquer Foiled. Then with BC I added the dripping look with the polish brush. 
Ring: Using Essie's Knockout Pout and a dotting tool I added a number of large pink areas to my nail. Then took BC and a smaller dotting tool and added the black details to create the leopard print. 
Pinky: Using a dotting tool I added clear rhinestones down the middle of my nail. Then took BC and a striping brush and added a line on either side of the rhinestones. 


Phew! That was a lot of explanation.

These nails were totally random and kinda flashy. I only kept them on for a day, but really enjoyed the silver, black and blue contrast with a flash of pink! 


How do you like my random nails? Do you even like when all your nails are different? Or do you prefer when they are a little more uniform? 


I hope you all have a great Monday!
