Fanbrush Manicure: October NCC #1

I have finally gotten into the Fall spirit! I’m a big supporter of wearing whatever shade/ color nail polish you want whenever you want. And I still will totally rock a neon or bright color even in the dark of winter. BUT I have really been gravitating towards the more muted, darker colors of fall now. Maybe it’s because many of the new Fall collections are continuing to arrive on my doorstep!

Anyways, today I have a very Fall-appropriate manicure for you. October’s Nail Challenge Collaborative theme is Stripes! I wanted to use this month to try techniques I haven’t done before or practice others I’m not so great at. So first up is my “messy striped manicure” using a previously untried technique – fanbrush!

I’m now kind of sad that I haven’t done this before! It was soooo easy! And it’s one of those types of nail art that is ok if it’s messy (my favorite type 😉 ). It kind of reminds me of camouflage.

I used:

  • Base Color – Revlon Spanish Moss… a gorgeous opaque olive green. I bought this last year and have really loved this color so much!
  • Top Color – KBShimmer Stonewashed… From the new Fall 2014 collection, this is a stunning greyed-out navy blue. I’m loving all the muted dusty shades this fall.

What do you think? Does this remind you of camouflage as well? Do you like fanbrush manis?
