The Soakbox nail polishes are sets of colors curated by some of the fabric industry's great designers. I selected the collection from my fav designer, Denyse Schmidt. I don't normally paint my nails, so I thought it pretty funny for me to try to design nail art on my small short stubby nails. I was surprised! It was fun to make your nails match your fabric!
I was to design 2 different looks. One was to be based on the designer's fabric collection. Seeds from Flea Market Fancy was just calling!
First, I painted a basecoat of Hot Opera (Pink) on all my nails (1). I chose to make the feature design just on my index finger. I used my ever-so-sophicated applicator (a toothpick) to paint the seed outline with Faded Glamour (White) (2). Lastly, I applied 2 dots with Deep Chocolate (Brown) to imitate the fabric design (3).
On all the other nails, I applied Faded Glamour (White) in stitch lines with the toothpick (2 below).
Pretty cute! I was surprised at how much I enjoyed wearing my new fancy nails around. I'm glad I tried out the Soakbox to make me think out of the box about art. Overall, the polish lasted about a week before I decided to remove it. Since I only did one base coat (I have limited patience for letting nails dry), I would consider that pretty long lasting. Thank you Soak, this was fun!
