It's tutorial time!! This is a mani I did a couple of weeks ago, and I actually decided to take pics as I went. I wasn't sure if I'd ever post it, but since I was busy marbling my friend's nails last night, I didn't have time to do my nails. Saddy-pants is me cuz' I really wanted to.

Before you start looking, don't get your expectations too high. This is kind of a new thing for me so perfect it is not. I'm shocked at how hard I find it to get a decent pic of just one nail. For some reason when I'm doing this, my right hand holding the camera wants to move. 

Oh, is what it is. So here it is.

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Himalayan Blue,  China Glaze You Drive Me Coconuts and Happy Go Lucky fan brush mani tutorial
My base blue on this one is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Himalayan Blue. I then used the fan brush to add Sinful Colors Snow Me White,  China Glaze You Drive Me Coconuts and Happy Go Lucky.  After it was dry I did a topcoat of Seche Vite.

I wish I would have had a yellow that was a bit more sheer. Then it would have made some of the blue turn green. Same with the pink. It would have been nice if some purple could have popped up. I didn't really want to fan brush any more colors on after this. I think it would have gotten too murky.

Done and done.  I like fan brush manicures because they are SO simple to do, and other than letting each color dry, they go pretty quickly.  I honestly don't know why I don't do them more often. They're great for when I'm feeling lazy.

And after all the running around this past week, I'm ready for some lazy. I foresee a lot of lazy this weekend; it's Thursday, and the pool is calling my name.
