DIGIT-AL DOZEN WEEK: Monochrome Mehndi

Nothing to Disclose

Hello lovelies!

Last day of Digit-al Dozen Week! With the exception of Tuesday's madness, I think this one was a success. :) And to end off the week on a high note, here are some mehndi designs for you!


I had this idea a long time ago, but never did anything with it because I wasn't sure I'd do it justice. I still haven't really done it justice, BUT I'm nonetheless happy with the outcome.


I started with two coats of Don't Pretzel My Buttons to ask as a nude base, and then painted on the designs using Temperance. 


I then went over only some parts with Tettegouche to darken them up and make them stand out more, to give a look of henna before and after the paste falls off.


Polishes used:
OPI - Don't Pretzel My Buttons
Elevation Polish - Temperance, Tettegouche (limited editions)
medium liner brush

I hope you've enjoyed the week! On the 'good and bad news' front, I won't have any nail art for you next week, as I'll be visiting my tattoo artist and his wife over in San Francisco, exploring the city, hanging out with their pups and chickens and orchids, getting tattooed on my right hip, and generally having an awesome time! I'll report back upon my return. ;)

xo,

J.
