Literary Lacquers Dry Brush Brights

See, I told you I was committed to making more art. It may not be ground-breaking, but it is at least fun. And surprise neons...because of course I check everything for UV reactivity. Who doesn't?

I'm trying to do stuff that I can achieve while watching tv. So for this manicure, I made a decal while binge watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer on netflix. Then for the rest of the manicure, I kinda haphazardly brushed white paint onto half of my nail. I was going to an anti-shadow effect...and I think I nailed it.

Oh! And look. For Thou Hast Eyes to See reacts to UV. I love it even more now.

Dry brush manicures are quickly becoming one of my favorite things. They are so easy to do, and they can be either messy and grunge or bright and clean, just depending on how it is arranged. Have you ever done a dry brush manicure? What is your favorite style?
