So, if you all remember the Rainbow Nails from our 31 Day Challenge, I did a design from WAH Nails. Back then, I didn't have nearly as many tools and things that I do now. I also didn't have my Models Own nail art pen. Jaclyn and I had put in a Models Own order a while ago, and I had picked up the pens in black and white. The white one was fine, it worked great. However, the black one, was a mess! It would ooze uncontrollably, and I couldn't make a design with it to save my life. I was, understandably, depressed. I had put aside extra money to get them because the reviews were so good. So, I contacted Models Own to see if my product was defective. (It obviously was, because my white one worked just fine.) The company then sent me a replacement, free of charge. The pens are so nice because they have the thin metal tip to them that allows for more fine designs. The top also screws off and reveals a nail art brush. So, whatever your style, they work! Models Own also released all the new colors, too. Since my new pen came in the mail finally, I was dying to try it out.
To the design: I used Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Wasabi for the base, and then I did a gradient on the tips with OPI Ogre The Top Blue. This gradient combo actually did half the work for me. When I added the blue, it went on sheer and kinda mixed with the green. So I really only needed to concentrate on the opaque blue tips. I also love the colors together! I then went in and added all the crazy designs with my new pen. I dont know why I got so hooked on this design, it must just catch my eye!
How's this design the second time around? I personally think it looks ten times better!
