Okay, I know I said it was Sally Hansen week, but this is my current manicure and I’m totally in love with how it turned out and had to share it right away. I’ve been obsessed by how string painting is done and wondered if it could be done on nails, and if so, how! If you haven’t seen a video of string painting, check that out first and come back.
I wasn’t sure what to use for the string, so I tried two things out: floss and thin craft yarn/thread/string (I think from one of my daughter’s many projects). I basically followed how string painting works, but on a small scale.
On my left hand, I used floss and on my right hand, craft yarn/thread. I found that while floss is flexible and small enough in diameter, it wasn’t flexible enough. But it didn’t soak up too much polish. The craft yarn/thread was more flexible but it soaked up too much polish!
I wasn’t sure I liked how it turned out at first; but glitter topper makes everything better. Poltergeist Shart is actually a glow-in-the-dark topper but I haven’t used it yet as such.
I still am looking for something that is more flexible and easier to make the “s” curves, because this was freaking messy! Also, I think this would look cool as a “smoke” manicure with white and black. 😀 I’m excited to experiment more and would love to know what you think of this.
