Today is Jeans for Genes Day here in Australia. Jeans for Genes Day is a national day when people wear their jeans to raise much-needed funds for research into birth defects and diseases such as cancer, epilepsy, and a range of genetic disorders. To show my support, I created Jeans nails.
In creating these nails, I used a technique that I saw on Instragram ages ago, and of course I can't find he account that I saw it on. If I find it, I'll update here, but I just wanted to note that this is not my original idea.
I started with a base of Ulta3 Block it out. To create the fabric texture, I actually used an old pair of jean, turned them inside out and down near the hem I painted polish onto the fabric. I then scraped that with a scraper, picked up the polish with a stamper and then stamped it onto my nails. Therefore what you see here is actual denim print.
I used gold acrylic paint to do the stitching and added OPI matte top coat. I pressed the gold studs into the matte top coat when it was wet, and amazingly they have stayed there all day. I love how these turned out. What do you think?
