Today’s Monkey See Monkey Do (MSMD) is inspired by none other than Dollface22772 but you may know her as Dolly from Dollish Polish! I absolutely love her youtube tutorials! This design is from her Prom Series and you can watch this particular design here.
I changed the color scheme just a little. Instead of black and white, I chose Black and Grey. I should have stuck to the original, ugh!! It’s kind of like when you watch the sequel to a really good movie and afterwards you say “the first one was better”, yep this is one of those instances :) LOL!
Although I won’t call this a fail, it is not what I was expecting. The silver glitter turned out way too thick, leaving my nails looking stumpy. I did however love Sinful Colors Slate. What a dream polish this is! It’s a shimmery grey that goes on nice and smooth. I also loved the needle (marbling) dragging technique :) It is a technique that requires some practice. The key is to have thick layers of polish, not to allow the polish to dry, and to drag the needle as though you’re dragging a feather across the polish. Not too deep and too much pressure. After a couple of times, it will become a breeze to master :)
Sinful Colors – Slate
Orly – Liquid Vinyl
Kiss Nail Art Paint – Silver
Have you tried needle dragging? What was your first impression of the technique?
Until next time! Happy Creating!
