The One With the Sally Hansen Black and White Dry Brush Mani

Nothing to Disclose 

Well Good Morning, Polished World!  How are you all doing on this fun Sunday?  Are Sunday's even considered fun?  For me they're a day of "ugh I'm going back to work tomorrow" mixed with errands that I didn't do throughout the week because I was so busy with work.  Did anyone else have a super busy week last week?  I felt like everything and anything that could happen did.  It was one of those weeks where I had plain nails and avoided all forms of social media.

Now I'm back though and life is calming down.  I decided to go into the drafts for today's post since obviously last week I had zero time to do any nail art.  I have so many ideas and designs that I want to re-create too, so I'm hopeful that tonight I'll have some time to sit down and begin creating again.  Until then, today's design is a black and white dry brush design I did last month.  I had no idea where I was going with this one, I just kind of let the paints flow.

Let's take a look.

Colors Used:
  • Sally Hansen - Blacky O
  • ORLY - White Tips
  • Some Gold polish I can't remember the name was an ORLY though!
You think by now I'd write the names of the polishes used in the drafts of these posts so when I come back to them a month or two later I know what colors I used.  It's only been 9 years of blogging and I've yet to learn that lesson.  Seriously though - I started this blog in 2012, can you believe I've been doing this for 9 years?!  I think if I make it to 2022, I'm going to re-create every single manicure that I did during my first year.

Sorry, got off track from today's manicure.  I actually am obsessed with how this design turned out.  I love the swooped drybrush.  I always go side to side or upside down, but instead I went a little abstract.  When the dry brush was done, I debated on stopping there but it seemed like it needed something more.  Enter in the gold dots.  I wish I had gold flake or something because that would have looked really awesome on this design.  Oh darn, I should have dry brushed the gold!  Regardless, I think the dots added to the abstract look.  

What do you think? Fun manicure? Something you'd try?

Until next time, <3.
