Pretty Paisley

Hope you've all been having a good weekend! I go back to school tomorrow and I'm pretty worried because I accomplished maybe 5% of the work I was supposed to get done. I also have some side projects going on but I'm hoping to keep the blog running as usual :)

Paisley is a print that I've seen on dozens of nails before, but never on my own. I decided to finally give it a go using a white base and a jelly polish, similar to the blue china print I a little while ago. I really like using jellies on top of white. The varying opacity achieved is very pretty and creates a softness to the look. Using a creme would have looked more bold but too stark in my opinion.


I started with American Apparel T-Shirt on all of my nails. I used a striping brush and dotting tool to make the design with OPI Guy Meets Gal-Veston.

What do you think of the paisley print? If you've tried it before I'd love to see! Leave a comment below or tweet @preciouspolish with your versions. Have a good work week!

  1. It looks fab ^^ I'd go with a creme no problem, but sure the jelly gives such a sweet effect... They're perfect!

  3. I've never tried this type of design but I would like to give it a try ;)) You did a splendid job here and you're right about the jellie nail polish it gives a softer touch to the design.
