Smooshy Nail Art

Smooshy nail art seems to be one of the trends in the nail world right now, or at least it was a little while ago... I'm a bit late with all of these usually, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's already so last season. Trend or not I wanted to try it myself as I've seen quite a few gorgeous manis done with this technique.

I chose to go with a color combo that I've used in several different manis successfully, just to be safe. This is quite an easy nail art technique, but I think you'll need to be at least a bit careful with your color choices to achieve the best outcome. That's why I chose this tried and true color combo of three Essie Flowerista collection polishes: Flowerista, Garden Variety and Blossom Dandy.

I really love how this look turned out! I used one coat of Essie Blanc as my base color and then I just did the smooshing by applying dots of those three Essie Flowerista collection polishes on my stamper and then dabbing the stamper few times on each nail. I tried not to dab too many times so that I could get that look where the colors are mixed but not too much. 

There's really anything too new with this technique. It's quite similar to that you can do with a piece of plastic, so you don't necessarily even need a stamper for this. But then again now I finally found something that's really easy to do with stamper! And I'm certainly going to use this technique again with some different color combos.

  1. Pisti hymyilyttään, kun huomasin "you might also like" osiossa löytyy useammat kynnet samalla väriyhdistelmällä :) Mutta se toimiikin tosi hyvin ja tosi kivat kuvioinnit on sattunut tulemaan :)

  2. Haha, on tullut samoja lakkoja käytettyä yhdessä useamman kerran. :D Mutta ne kyllä toimii niin hyvin yksiin, joten miksei. :) Kiitos!
