BFF Challenge: Punk

Punk Rock! For this week's challenge Bec chose to do Punk Nails.  I kept thinking what I could do that would be punk, and I had a hard time, so I eventually came up with this!

I decided to do chains on my nails. I don't think they turned out bad. I used a small straw(from a capri sun) to make the chains, and I dipped the end of the straw into Sally Hansen Silver Sweep, and in order to get the look, I just lined up the straw next to each other.  In the end there were a few gaps, so to fill in, I used my dotting tool and filled in the holes that were missing or needed more polish. 

I used a base of China Glaze Stone Cold, which is matte, but when you topcoat it you get this cool black with micro-shimmer in it! I absolutely love it! It looks awesome matte, or shiny, so whichever you prefer. :)  I added 1 coat of HK Girl topcoat to seal it off, and to make the nails shiny instead of the matte base.


I really like how these turned out!
