Ah! Late with this post - started typing it up last night and fell asleep while my pictures were uploading to blogger...yeah, in that short amount of time. Oops! Today is Day 6 of the Flip/Flop February 28 Day Challenge hosted by Jillian at Jilltastic Nail Design. Today's options were Fan Brush or Glitter Bomb. I've never tried the Fan Brush thing before, so I bought one and went to town. This is what happened:
I'm not thrilled. It's not the worst thing ever - I'm even wearing it today at work, but I think I just expected better. It looks blurry even though my picture isn't! I couldn't get the bristles on my brush to separate like I wanted them to. Probably would've been helpful to watch some YouTube tutorials before I tried this, but I did no such thing.
Even though the result wasn't exactly what I was expecting - the technique is pretty easy to use. It's not too terribly messy (I'd say sponging for a gradient and water marbling for sure are messier) and it doesn't take long.
The colors I used are from left to right:
Essence Modern Romance
Butter London Trout Pout
Essence Oh My Glitter!
Revlon Coastal Surf
OPI Mermaids Tears
Here is a picture of my base colors. I used 2 coats of Elaine on index and pinky fingers and 2 coats of Modern Romance on middle and ring fingers. The fan brush colors I used were every other color shown except for the one that was used as the base.

A reminder of what's to come!
Now go check out the other ladies designs and see what they came up with for today!
