Nails: Autumnal Needle Drag

I saw some seasonal nail polish release colours and it inspired me to create a autumnal needle drag set of nails using polishes I already own. I hadn't thought it was three years since I last used the technique! [2016 Autumnal Needle Drag] I didn't really like these nails and so added some stamping later on.

40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Earth Tones

Today's post is the last in the year long '40 Great Nail Art Ideas' challenge. What a year it has been, quite eventful personally, however I did manage to complete the challenge and all posts were on time, which considering is an achievement I am sure!

Anyhow on to the nails, when I envisioned these in my mind I didn't think I would like them but actually I really did. Along with earth tones I had to add in the prompt of needle drag.

Tutorial: Needle Drag Nails

Another tutorial today, this was requested as I did needle drag nails earlier in the year for the 52 Week Pick n' Mix nail challenge. I didn't have a needle to hand so for the tutorial I ended up using a opened up paper clip.

1) Paint base polish and let it dry
2) Paint a opaque coat of each polish over half of the nail
3) While the polish is still wet, using the needle drag it over the nail from side to side (hopefully the clip above will show this better than my description!)
4) Top coat the nail to smooth the design and finish off
