Guest Post: Handmade By Kyleigh's Silver Anchor Mani

10:00

Hey lovelies,

The lovely Kyleigh from Handmade By Kyleigh is guest posting for me today and she has some super gorgeous nail art to share with you!

Hello everyone :) Thank you so much Lani for letting me play on your blog today!
What I wanted to show you guys is one last summer mani before the weather really packs up on us :/

I've called it my 'Silver Anchor' mani


This look was achieved by first painting all of my nails with a base coat of Ciate 'Underwear' followed by two coats of Ciate 'Pepperminty' - one of my favourite mint polishes!
I then used my Winstonia* striping brush to outline my stripes on all but my middle finger using a light grey acrylic paint. Using the same light grey paint I filled them in using my Pure Color 10* detail brush. I then went back over my now light grey stripes with white. -Using a light grey to 'undercoat' an area makes it much easier to then fill in with white, especially if you're going over a darker colour.
The next step was to outline my stripes with a silver acrylic paint, this was done using my Winstonia striping brush.
For the anchor on my middle finger I googled pictures of anchors until I found one that I liked the look of to use as a reference. I painted an outline of the anchor in grey using my Pure Color 9* liner brush and adjusted it until I was happy, then I simply filled it in with silver leaving a thin outline of grey to help the image 'pop'.
I finished the whole thing off with two coats of Seche Vite for a longer lasting mani and a gorgeous shine!
