Shredded needle drag nails

Hello everyone! This morning I have another set of nails for you guys that I did "pre break," aka the Nailocalypse 2012. I had been eager to try the needle drag technique again after my first attempt, because THIS BEAUTIFUL GENIUS left a comment on my last post suggesting that I try it with a clean striper brush instead of with an actual needle.


As you can see, the effect is a little bit different, but I think it's in a good way! And honestly, this method made this "needle marble" look about a bajillion times easier than the last time I tried it. So exciting!


The only hesitation that I had about this manicure was the color combination. I used Zoya Kennedy, Zoya Petra, and Zoya Renee. I was unsure about it at first, and as time went on I only got more and more confused! I couldn't decide whether I liked it or disliked it. Eventually I decided that I mostly liked it. What do you guys think?


I have a lot of exciting things working around in my brain for you guys... I just have to find time to execute! Keep praying to the Nail Gods for me that my nubbies will grow out quickly! <3

  4. This is SICK! I love the color combo, it gives it a dark, sexy effect. I agree with MariJo, Can you do a tutorial for people like me, who have no creative talent, but are really great at following directions? And maybe a picture of the brush too? Pretty please?!

  28. They came out great! I have tried this a few times as well and first time with a needle and it sucked. Then I tried a stripper brush that was to thick and it sucked. >_< My most recent attempt came out decent after I cut some of the hair from the brush. But that link you posted of the stripper looks perfect long and thinner then the ones I have, I am ordering it asap! Thanks for the heads up!! :D
