I have joined a nail art challenge group on facebook She who does nail art and the first challenge was sweets, the first thing that popped into my head were peppermint swirls as it was something I've wanted to do before so I though perfect! I changed the colours so there not so christmassy to pink and so I could use my pink Barry M nail art pen plus a darker pink 2 in 1 nail art pen I got from eBay.
A challenge it definitely was phew! I did find them pretty tough especially on my right hand, still need the most practice with left hand work.
I used 2 coats of Barry M white as my base then planted a pink dot in the middle as my starting point and drew out the light pink swirls and coloured them in, when they were dry (very fast drying time) I did the same with the dark pink pen. I added 2 coats of Barry M Pink Iridescent as it's a good cover over to mask any wobbliness and mess hehe then planted a rhinestone in the centre and I have to say as hard as they were I am proud of them, they were a challenge but they are good to me :)
