First Attempt Needle Drag Technique: Bright Summery Goodness....

Okay so I saw a post in a group I belong to where a girl used the needle drag technique to make this FABULOUS mani, WELL I decided I needed to try that right away but I wanted mine to be a tad different. (To see the other girl's mani and the video I watched to "get" it, stay tuned to the bottom of this post!!)

The colors I used:
China Glaze Black Diamond
Claire's Grasshopper
Finger Paints Dahlia My Number
Funky Fingers Kingston

The idea is to paint stripes and drag a pin through it to cause a streaking effect. LOVE!! Of course I figure with more practice I will get better :D

The pics I took are NOT the best but the sun wasn't the best that day.........








The post of the blogger who inspired me to do this mani, her's is DEFINITELY gorgeous and different than mine. I wanted mine to look more stripy.......of course I will eventually do one more like hers to look like a traditional tie dye :D

Here is the video I watched to learn the needle drag technique:




Thanks for stopping by!!

Love & Sparkles,

AWE! Thank you!!!! I was inspired by watermelon, I wanted it to be summery and when I think summer............evidently I think WATERMELON! So I picked colors that would come together in watermelon of all things.
