Kiss Products Freehand Mosaic Nail Art for Nail It! Magazine

press samples
So, I decided this New Year's Eve that I wanted something atypical. No glitter (gasp!) and bright! I've also been wanting to give a go at some negative space (letting the unpainted nail show through) nail art. This is what I came up with, a design created for Nail It! Magazine and a mini tutorial (you can view on their site, nailitmag.com) to go along with it. I used polishes from Kiss Products: Kiss Nail Artist Paint and Stencil Kit, Kiss Nail Artist Paints and Tip Guides. Learn all about Kiss products, including nails, on their website and follow them on facebook. Each set comes with three different shades of stripers that worked perfectly for this design. I was actually impressed with how easy they were to work with and how saturated the colors are. The kits also include stencils and tape that I haven't used yet. This design is all freehanded.

 The photo above shows the mani before I outlined the mosaic and top coated. I actually like it this way as well, so I wanted to show you :)

I reeeeally love the way this turned out, I did both hands even!! You can see them both on my Instagram accout @victoria_manicurator. I decided to be a rebel and NOT take these off to keep swatchin. That's right, I wore these for days and days :D What do you think? Cheerful, right? 

Happy New Year to you! Hope it's a great year for you, mine is off to a rough start, but I intend to make it a great one despite that.
