I chose an OPI silver (Birthday Babe) and an Australis black, and got to work...
I first painted my nails with 2 coats of silver and let them dry. Then I took some manicure strips, placed them over the silver and painted the tips black, and removed the strips. Once these were dry, I painted a clear coat over the top and waited once again for them to dry. They didn't turn out too bad, I must say! Not the neatest job in the world but then again, they never are. I'm not a nail technician or anything okay. But they feel quite nice and smooth and at certain angles they look pretty cool! I'd like to try this method again using different colours. (:
Ta-da! Hope you like? As you can see, not the neatest or smoothest or most even, but not tooooo bad for my first attempt. Here's what I kinda wished they looked more like... lol.

Sincerest apologies for my absence from blogging for the past week! As I mentioned before, I have been working on my research seminar (on styles of illustration) which I performed today. It went well and I'm pleased with how it went and what I presented! (:
Tomorrow, I am heading over to Auckland with my classmates for a design seminar called Semi-Permanent. We are staying there for 3 nights and return Sunday night which means I shall be absent from regular posting here for a few more days yet! But never fear, I promise I shall return to posting often from next week onwards! And I'll let you know how the trip to Auckland goes, too..
I wish you all a lovely weekend! (:
I'll be back. . . ;)
Fair thee well!
