Last week, I've had an interesting proposition from lovely people at Tangle Teezer. They've asked me if I'd like to create a nail art inspired by their Tangle Teezer hair brushes and tell you about a Twitter competition between Tangle Teezer and Little Ondine. I immediately said yes because I'm a huge fan of Tangle Teezer (TT) brushes and I haven't been using any others for the past 4 or so years.
Once I browsed the TT website to look for an inspiration, I came across their Salon Elite line full of colourful brushes. I've had an idea for fun, colourful and almost pop art stylised images so I tried to get as close as possible to my vision.
I've used two Tangle Teezers in the photos - Lemon Sherbet, a canary yellow and pastel pink and Blue Blush, bright blue and neon pink.
As for my nails, I wanted to match up the polishes as close to the TT colours as possible and then stick to the colour combinations on my nails. I also didn't want a busy design bt something very simple yet bold. This design was most likely done before but I didn't intentionally copy anyone and just played around :)
For my left hand I've used KIKO 295 Cerulean Blue, a bright blue nail polish and then I've used striper and painted the middle section with Models Own Pink Wellies, a neon pink polish. On my right hand, I've painted my nails with three coats of Accessorize Bubble Gum, a pink creme colour. The using striper again, I've painted the middle section with Rimmel 452 Chin up, Buttercup, a bright yellow creme. All sealed with Seche Vite topcoat which ultimately betrayed me at this instance and I had quite noticeable shrinkage after couple of hours :'(
Here's the rest of the photos I did for you with the help of my husband and keep reading for the details of the competition and how to join!
