Cult Nails Polish = Patch Work Nail Design

I have seen many blogs do patch work nail designs lately, so I thought I would give it a try. I decided to do a Fall inspired patch work nail design. They remind me of a scarecrow. 

I used Cult Nails In A Trance, Cult Nails Iconic, and China Glaze Papaya. For some reason, when I put on the shiny top coat portions of some of my nail tips turned matte/foggy looking. It did this on the manicure I had on before this one as well. I did not notice the foggy/matte patches until I put on the top coat. (You can really tell what I am talking about in the next photo). Does anyone know why it did that? 




These are swatches I did a while back ago. This is two coats of Cult Nails In A Trance.



This is two coats of Cult Nails Iconic.



Bonus: This is two coats of Cult Nails Let Me Fly.

Wow! I've never seen this design before! It reminds me of fall 100%! The swatches are amazing, such nice colors.

Wow I love it!! I am sorry that it turned foggy/matte. It's weird that it did that. I really love the mani though!

I've always wanted to try this kind of nail art, because it looks so nice!

I had the same foggy thing happening when I used Poshe topcoat for the first 2 times. I still don't know why that happened, but I have to say it looks kinda cool with this design!

What a great job you did, Amy....it's a patchwork/Frankenstein design! Flawless!

I get that fogginess sometimes when I'm doing swatches on my nail sticks... sometimes, I think it's due to the brand of topcoat I use, and sometimes I think it's due to a little nail polish remover that accidentally gets on and then I try to paint over it....

romipo on October 11, 2011 at 7:57 PM said...

looks soo cool this patchwork! the colours go so weel together!

drinkcitra on October 11, 2011 at 11:16 PM said...

the patchwork is beautiful. interesting that the tips sort of fogged up...not sure why that happened. This is a bit different, but when I use nail art pens and apply a top coat, the pen polish becomes roughed up, almost like it crackles slightly. I'm not sure why...

♥beauxs mom on October 11, 2011 at 11:51 PM said...

So cute I love the colors and your patchwork design came out really good, great job!

KarenD on October 13, 2011 at 8:46 AM said...

Great mani! Reminds me of Halloween--it would go perfectly with a Sally costume from The Nightmare Before Christmas. :)
