Now that we're well into September, Summer for 2016 has officially ended.
Well, we don't know about you, but at Fairypants HQ we're just not ready to say goodbye. What better way to hang onto those fun Summer vibes than by painting them onto our nails?
Anyone who keeps their finger on the pulse of nail art channels on YouTube will know that in the last year or so, 'dry-brushing' has come into its own as the saviour of the not-so-artsy nail fanatics everywhere. You don't need a steady hand, you don't need any fancy products or tools and you don't even need a lot of time. It's also a super easy way to get a French mani with a twist! None of those fiddly straight lines for us!
Choose a nude/pale base coat (we've gone for white), then using your colours of choice, wipe as much product as possible from the brush, and swipe the remainder onto those talons! Swipe vertically, horizontally, diagonally- whatever takes your fancy! This look is so versatile - you could literally use any colours - nudes, brights, glitters - and you're guaranteed an unusual mani that looks like it took a LOT more effort than it did. As our aim is to recapture the Summer, we plumped for the Fairypants Neon Collection on a white base, with a glossy topcoat. A matte topcoat would also look awesome! We've also popped a cheeky bit of a glitter accent on the ring fingernail, but you can work this look any way that takes your fancy!
Is this the most versatile look or what?
Which colours would you choose? If you've recreated this look (or changed it up with new colours), tweet us or tag us on Instagram! We'd love to see what you've come up with!
