Guest Post: Jacquie from Claws Up!

Hey guys! Today I am so excited to be kicking off a fun week of posts! I asked a few fellow bloggers to help me out, and one that jumped on board was Jacquie, who is here today to show us her glamorous manicure!


Hello Nail Treasures readers :) My name is Jacquie, or LittleMonsterx14 of Claws Up! I am very honored to have been chosen by Abby to guest post on her blog. I absolutely love all of her amazing nail art and I am so happy to be able to be a part of her blog today :)

When I was figuring out what I wanted to do for this post, I decided that I wanted to try a technique that's new to me: the fan brush method. I know this style as been around for a while, but I actually have never gotten around to trying it myself, until now. I grabbed a few colors, my fan brush, and got to work!

I really liked this look! Using the fan brush created a very interesting stripe pattern. It is definitely a fun and easy technique.  I was really happy with how the colors looked together too. All the different metallic finishes worked well together and I love how you can see just a bit of black poking through. I can't wait to do another fan brush manicure!

Do you like the fan brush look? Have you tired it out?
