NAILS | Going Abstract Again #CBBxManiMonday

I used to think that I could never pull off an abstract manicure and when I started seeing more and more of the minimalist/geometric style manicures being showcased by big brands and other nail artists, I still wasn't sure if I had the creativity to design something and I still don't! I'm not a particularly creative person so I really do need to go through Pinterest or Instagram to get some ideas and today's manicure is from the feed of one of my favourite nail artists @thehangedit. I have also really been loving the shades from the new CND Treasured Moments collection so this manicure gave me a chance to use them again!

For today's nail art, I used 2 coats of the nude CND Vinylux Baby Smile* and then just did random brush strokes and dots of red with CND Vinylux First Love*. For the fine black lines, I used a black nail striper polish from KISS. I don't normally like using striper polishes, but for straight black lines, they really are perfect in giving you a crisp black line in one go as opposed to acrylic paint that takes a few coats to get really black. I topped everything off with the matching top coat and I was ready to roll!
