13 Days of January // Day 5: Reversed Polarities!


Hi guys! Today, I'm showing you the mani I did for day 5 of the 13 days of January Nail Art Challenge! =) 


The prompt was Reversed Polarities and I have to confess that I didn't really know what to do. What does "reversed polarities" mean when it comes to nail art? I had absolutely no idea! lol! So I just chose a nail art I like (here, the beautiful "Cattails at Sunset" mani of the talented Sarah @Chalkboard Nails), opened it in Gimp and used the "Invert" colors function. Here was the result :

Now that I had finally found my inspiration, I just had to pick the nail polishes.


First, I applied 2 coats of Elevation Polish Cuernos del Paine. Then, I sponged a gradient with Cuernos del Paine, Kiko 389 Mint Milk, Kiko 341 Colbalt Green and OPI Keeping Suzi At Bay.


Next, I used some white acrylic paint to draw the cattails.


Final step, one coat of KBShimmer Clearly to seal the design. And voilà! :D

Thank you so much for reading! 
The next 13 Days of January blog post will be on Wednesday.
