Crack and Burn...

I would like to show you some nail art that I created while swatching InDecisive Nal Lacquer last week. I was captivated by Antique for the name and the beautiful silver flakies. For some reason, it made me think of DIY distressed furniture so I really wanted to distress the tips of the manicure. The look was inspired by a Nailartitudesdeclaire manicure which I spotted on Pinterest a few days prior. In comparison with the delicate manicure of Nailartitudesdeclaire, I'm a fairly heavy handed when it comes to free hand nail art. As you can see, rather than a gentle distressing, I ended up with "burnt" tips, but I love it...

I used one coat of InDecisive Antique over Barielle Straight A Coral for my base. The rest was added using black acrylic paint, a sponge and a small paint brush....

I've done flame manicures before, but this is the first "after the fire" manicure and I can't wait to do more...

I'd love to know what you think of this!

Thanks for looking!
