Mish Mash Challenge - Nail Art Technique You've Never Tried Before

I find this weeks challenge really exciting. I've been saying that about each Mish Mash post actually but that's beside the point. I usually tell myself that I will try something new but end up doing something I'm comfortable with like half moons. I've never tried Ikat before and it seemed really interesting. This was the perfect opportunity to try this manicure and while it isn't the greatest attempt, I am really proud of how these came out! I'm pretty sure I might even end up trying this again with a different color combination once I take these off.

Periwinkle Blue Essie - Bikini So Teeny
Coral Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Coral Reef
White L.A. Colors Art Deco Nail Art Lacquer - White
Black L.A. Colors Art Deco Nail Art Lacquer - Black

I'm actually surprised at just how fun this looks on the nail. I may even wear it for more than a day and that's saying something. My topcoat did smudge the design a bit but nothing to major thankfully.

  4. This is one of the few techniques that I don't mind top coat smudging...it makes it look more like cloth. These are gorgeous! I love the color combo :)
