We are revisiting Border Nails.
I know some people know this style better as Frame Nails, but they are one and the same technique.
For this look I am using three polishes:
H&M - Beige is one of my oldest polishes and I am surprised it is still kicking and hasn't dried all up. It has been with me since the very beginning. No wonder it is also, half empty.
I actually won FNUG - Love Chic in a competition when FNUG first launched, and I got to choose a couple of shades from their line. Their polishes are amazing, a bit on the pricey side, but the staying power of these babies beats most of my other polishes to the boot.
W7 - Buff is like the accident polish of this look. I never really liked this particular polish, it is too thin to be worn alone, but it works great for sponging. I think W7 make great polishes but W7- Buff is a dud.
I also used a thin striping brush and a sponge for this look.
First I started out with applying one coat of H&M - Beige, and once it was dry I placed 2 drops of H&M - Beige and 3 drops of W7- Buff to my Uber Chic Mat and dipped a sponge in to pick up the two colours. Dab dab dab on to the nails.
It created a nice washed out marbled look.
Then I went in with a striping brush and FNUG - Love Chic and framed the nails.

I am still learning to get my lines even with my striping brush, but this is definitely looking a whole better than last years attempts at border nails.
Practise makes perfect, right?
I wore this look for a couple of days, and decided to switch up up and do Mosaic Nails.
Grabbing my striping brush again and FNUG - Love Chic, I managed to get a couple days more wear.
