Ok, THIS post is late: Things are getting hairy

So I have missed a few weeks of the A-Z Challenge, but one week I didn't want to miss was unusual. I feel like in the past I did a lot of weird manicures and I kind of miss doing them like I used to. I though this would be a great time to try something I had been wanting to give a go for a while. And since I was busy the week of this challenge I never did it until the other day.

Back in December someone in a Facebook group I'm part of posted a video that shared 3 nail polish tricks. One of them involved making a striping brush out of your own hair. I thought that would be great to try with my hair, my natural hair. My hair is currently a bunch of different textures, so I decided to cut a little over an inch long coil from the end of my hair(after I cut it I stretched out the coil and it was over 7 inches long. Not surprising as it's curly and I have shrinkage), and tape it to the end of another brush handle. Then I went to town painting with my own hair. First I used pink and orange acrylic paint, then I used Orly Charged Up for the purple. Obviously because my hair is curly I'm not going to get stripes, but I did like the design I ended up with. It was like a combination of splatters and flowers :P

 The "brush" I used :P


  1. This is weird and creepy and cool all at the same time. Your nails turned out really pretty too, I would have had no idea you used a hair brush :-P

  2. I love the result very much, it's super beautiful!

  3. I've never heard to use the own hair for a striping brush, it is totally genius and I am sure going to try it, out of curiosity! I like the result you obtained and the colors work well together!

  4. What a fun idea, and I love the end result!!
