This design was inspired by another fab nail post I saw recently on Ash-Lilly's Lacquer Lust (the link takes you direct to the wicked post which inspired my look) Her nails are seriously long and elegant I strongly reccomend checking out her blog if you like your nail art!
I wanted to make my own version of the look and I've been practicing these gemstones recently so it didn't take to long to figure out a nice mix and match pattern to use.. I've been waiting to do some peace signs for ages now but not had the right design in mind so I finally satisfied that craving aswell!!
The colour in these pics is soo off.. in real life they are neon pink in these photos they look more like coral.. I did these in the evening and pink is just impossible to photograph acurately with any of the lighting available in my flat, so I just took them as they came for the step by step, I thought the daylight shots would come out truer but it's still not right.. why is pink so weird to take photos of?
Check out my step by step below, for some good clear pics of the designs:
1. I started with a nice neon pink base as bright as I could get ^_^
2. I painted on my basic shapes with a fine brush - I painted the outlines first before filling in.. which I find really helps.
Here are some close ups from before I applied top coat.
got so many comments on these today at work - strangely popular with men/ boys and little kids(is that a fail? lol)... and then disater struck...
|just aaaaarrrggghhhhhhh! I will say nothing else on the matter!.. (I may have a little cry though)|
Obviously I will be back double soon with some more nails for you, hope you liked these while they lasted.. I did ;-( waaaaaahhhh
