52WPNMC - Brushstroke & Favourite brand

*press sample*

Hi all!

Two prompts this week; brushstroke and favourite brand. I went with favourite mainstream brand and picked Catrice. It's also the brand I own most of *winks*. Brushstroke can mean different techniques and I chose to use the distressed technique by Chalkboard Nails.

Today's polishes:
  • Sinful Colors - 101 Snow Me White
  • Catrice - 13 Shopping Day At Bluemingdales
  • Catrice - 14 Purple Reign
  • Catrice - 15 Denim Moore
  • Catrice - 30 Lilactric
  • Catrice - 56 Minter Wonderland

I started with a white base and added my brushstrokes with the Catrice polishes. I top coated and let it dry. Using french nail tip guides I taped off a moon near my cuticle and added Minter Wonderland for contrast. Next I added another layer of top coat. Before that was dry, I placed a spiral stud Born Pretty Store sent me for review in the "moon" area.

On my thumb I placed two studs. As you can see I have two different patterns, both spirals yet slightly different. These are 3mm wide and also available in "gold".

I really like how this mani turned out and those studs as well. Both of these studs are item 16741, the flat spiral (middle and ring finger) is pattern 10 and the pointed spiral (index and little finger) is pattern 12. Both of these are 3mm wide and also available in 4mm and/or gold colour. You get 10 studs wrapped in a plastic envelope. If you don't lose them you can reuse them of course.
