Guest Post: Polish Pixelle Street Nails!

6:00:00 PM

Hi ho cherry-o! Ave from Polish Pixelle here with one of what will hopefully be many guest posts! Alaina and I had been planning on doing guest posts on each others blogs for a while and when tragedy struck (read: severely broken nail) I decided to step up and help Alaina out :) Once her swatching nails have recovered hopefully you'll see a guest post on my blog by her!

I was nervous about this guest post since this blog is all about nail art and my blog is more swatch focused. However, I attempted to step up to the challenge with some street nails I had been thinking about for a while. The inspiration for this was China Glazes 'Stone Cold' which to me looks very similar to asphalt.

For this mani I used:

- China Glaze 'Stone Cold'
- Julep 'Blake'
- Toothpick for dotting

I applied two coats of Stone Cold, and used a toothpick to create the yellow lines with Blake.

I really like how these came out. Maybe an unconventional mani, but that is what makes it fun! I got tons of compliments (and a few strange looks). I think I may try this again at one point, incorporating street signs.
