I wanted to do a camouflage manicure for a while now...I have a long list of "manicures to do" list and this has been on it for a while. There are times I look at my nails and think these just look like blobs of color and there are times I look at my nails and think, yeah...this looks like camouflage. All and all, I guess that is what camo really is...random blobs of color that run more in a horizontal pattern. So here is my first attempt at a camo mani.
There are so many different color combos of camo prints out there...blue tones, pink tones, black tone, green tone, green and brown, etc. I went with the green and brown colors for this one, but I really want to do a pink camo next. That will be my next stab at doing a camo mani.
I am on the fence about the top coat being so shiny. Though I am not so big on doing the matte top coat, I think it may be more appropriate for this manicure. The shine on the camo design just looks a little off. I think I have to go buy a matte top coat for my next attempt at this.
Any ideas of a good matte coat out there? I know nothing about them.
For this manicure I applied the following:
- Sache Clear Base Coat
- China Glaze in Kalahari Kiss...1 coat
- Loreal in Safari Chic...camo markings
- Milani in Teddy Brown...camo markings
- Sally Hansen in Black Heart...camo markings
- Out the Door...1 coat
