Exactly one year today I chose the name 10 Blank Canvases and set up my blog. It is crazy how much it has progressed in the last year. Im afraid I haven’t had the time to do a super special nail set to celebrate, but I have been playing round with new techniques and I absolutely love the way these nails turned out.
Todays nails are a acrylic mess free water marble. I have never tried the water marble technique with nail polish in a cup, as it always looked far too messy to me! This method below uses watered down acrylic paint (not too much) painted over a white base in such a way that they bleed into each other, creating a marbly effect. I used blue and purple paint as they are my favourite two colours and they look amazing together.
Then I decided to try out a new toy I bought myself – a black light and UV polish! I added a layer of the UV topcoat over the design and lit it up with the black light. The polish glowed so bright and looked amazing with the design showing through. Unfortunately it didn’t photograph too well, but you can really see my nails glow!
I love these nails so much, they are perfect blogiversary nails as they combine my favourite colours with things that glow (which I love!).
I have been pretty vague about how I created these nails as I have been thinking about creating some video tutorial about some of the nails and techniques I have used that I haven’t seen in other places. If you have any suggestions of things you would like to see comment below or send me a message. I would love to know what you guys think!
Thanks for reading, and here’s to another year of blogging *imaginary cheers*!!
