Rock/Mineral Nail Art Week: Day One Abstract Eudialyte

Nothing to Disclose

Today starts another Nail Art week with some of my nail polish buddies! The theme this week is rocks and minerals. Well I have to admit that I was stumped.

When I was a kid, I would pick up an interesting rock from every place we ever visited. Okay fine, I still do it sometimes! I was never interested enough to look them up or get "into" it as a collector. I think it was just that we were so broke, those were my souvenirs! I don't even know if I still have most of them. I suspect they might be in a random box in a storage unit, but I'd rather have another root canal than go searching through a storage shed.

So of course I did what anyone would do. Google!

This eudialyte looked interesting so I just did sort of an abstract version of it on my nails and BAM, Day One was done!

I used a base of grey creme (Essence Movie Star) then I sponged on white and grey just a little to mottle them. Then I grabbed a little nail art brush and laid in the black and violet. The violet is a franken I made.

This is a really easy mani anyone can do - with any color combo! What do you think?

Be sure and check out the other great manis this week in the links below!

  1. Beautiful!! I love doing 'The Splodge' technique like this, such fab results every time :) The colors are beautiful together and definitely look like the inspiration photo!!

  2. Wow, you really nailed that one! Love it!

  3. LMAO....I commented using my husband's log in! The comment by "1godsman" was really mine! He was having a fit so I had to correct it!

  4. I love this whole technique-- so much more beautiful and creative than one single color and expresses the inner artist.
