Mani of the Day!

Today I have another quick Mani of the Day post featuring a-england Galahad! Galahad is a gorgeous blue-green creme, with an amazing formula. Today is the last day of the a-england promotion, so I figured it would be the perfect day to show off this mani! I also used gold and black acrylic paint for the design. I was inspired by one of the nails on this mani! This abstract mosaic design is something different for me, but I really like how it came out!

I first applied 1-2 coats of Galahad, and let dry. Then, using a thin paintbrush, I created the rectangles and triangles in gold paint. I allowed a few minutes for the gold to dry and outlined the shapes with a thinner paintbrush dipped in black acrylic paint. I topped with 2 coats of HK Girl Topcoat and let dry!

This mani is definitely different from my other work, but I really do like how it turned out, what do you think? Tell me below or on Pretty in Paint's Facebook

  1. I've loved this mani since you first posted it. I'd really love to give it a try but have no idea how. Could you please show step by step pics with what you used or a quick explanation of you don't have the time. Thanks :) Love your blog.
