Patchwork Manicure

Pin It So bad news, 2 of my nails on my swatch hand broke. Anddd to put me an even better mood, all my swatches got lost when I got a new phone :( So right hand it is! Oh, lord help me haha

What did I do with all these Indies? Bet you can't guess! :P

I've seen Indies do this little swatch manicure, when they swatch all their polishes on one hand over black. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Lmao...

Well I decided to give it a shot since it looked cool! Not sure if it has a name but I'm calling it a patchwork manicure. Makes sense to me :P

I'm sure you can find similar polishes that aren't Indies but, I have a lot of Indies and I always enjoy their unique qualities.

Here's what I came up with!

Blah my right hand makes swatching so complicated! And my skin isn't too up to par.... But, that's a story for another day haha.

I think it's kinda cool and unique looking if you ask me! A patchwork manicure, hm, who woulda thought! It's super easy, too! Just paint your nails black and make blobs/dots of polish over the black. You could make it really patchwork like by adding some striping tape!

If you're wondering what polishes I used, here's a list!
Top row: Whimsical Ideas by Pam Nimbus, Cult Nails Seduction, Cult Nails Hypnotize Me, Cult Nails Captivated
Bottom row: Shimmer Polish Wendy, Candeo Mallard, Rainbow Honey Siren Song, Sinful Colors Black on Black.

What do you think? Cool looking or too weird? Haha

See you tomorrow!
