Freehand Acrylic Henna Flowers - BPS Brush Experiments.

Allo polish Pals!
How are you today? A while a go (and this is testament of how much I love the Born Pretty Store) treated myself to a few more goodies. Among them was *this* bamboo detailing brush. I got mine for just $1.95. I had been looking for a good brush to do extra small things with and I can tell you I am not disappointed. I'm still getting to learn how to use this brush. In trial and error I discovered that the brush can hold a lot of water if I didn't blot the tip enough but I decided to have an experiment and to share it with you even if the manicure is not

Not as neat as I would of liked but that will come with practice I hope :)
I only used one coloured polish for this manicure. I started with my beloved Nail Envy by OPI and applied two coats of Collection's 'Fool's Gold'. I then used OPI's matte top coat and attempted to create a Henna inspired manicure using black acrylic Oumaxi paint and my new brush.

To look at this manicure in person it was quite striking, I thought. However the camera has pointed out so many things I hate about this mani. Still, it was fun to mess around and play with my new brush. We're going to have a lot of fun together.

What do you think of my freehand Henna manicure? Do you have a favorite tool for creating manicures?

Have a great start to your weekend!
