Geometric Challenge Day 8: 3D

Press Sample Purchased by Me

Evening ladies and gents!

I may be late, but here I am catching up with the rest of the Geometric Challenge! Today I'll be sharing Day 8 which is 3D nails! There are a whole lot of awesome options in 3D nail art and I am no stranger to putting crazy things on my nails. I had just received this awesome set of microbeads from Born Pretty Store and was dying to use them so decided to do my 3D nail art using them!

I had also just received an awesome package from Cult Nails with Cult Nails Fetish, a black wax finish polish and Cult Nails I Got Distracted which is that marvelous glitter you see on my nails there.

For my 3D nail I started with a black creme and then added Sephora by OPI Never Enough Shoes to just a little extra something. Then I started adding small strips of slow drying top coat and using a fine dotting tool and water picked up each steel ball and placed it on my nail creating the green square pattern. Then I went back with some royal blue microbeads and added one in the center of each square. I thought it was too much for this to be on every nail, not to mention waaaaaay too time consuming so I stuck with the middle nail accent and let Fetish and I Got Distracted do the rest of my talking ;)

I quite like how dark these are on my little nails. I always love really vampy or dark polishes and looks when I have super shorties. Side note in reality my nails are even shorter than this right now. I had some baaaad breaks where on one my my nails it was so bad it could not even retain its square shape. Hopefully they grow a teeny bit soon!
