Gosh this week is flying by. How has your week been? Mine is busy busy busy. I am always busy actually and I like it. Adding the shop however has made me quite a bit busier. So fun! It doesn’t mean that I am too busy for a smidge of nail art (yet) and that is exactly what I am showing you today.
It’s NAILLinkup time. You can check out all the prompts on the poster below. Remember, the dates are just a guideline. You can also find more info about NAILLINKUP and the January prompts here.
This weeks prompt was chosen by Coco and once again, I went in a completely different direction. I know what Coco had in mind with the prompt but I had no idea how to translate that growth to my nails. So I went literal. Let me show you what I did.
I started with 2 coats of Essence – Turn the lights on!. I am not sure why I didn’t swatch this one for you today but let me tell you it exceeded my expectations. Beautiful formula and opacity. Once that was completely dry I stamped using W218 and Mundo de Unas – Lilac, Barbie and Lime. I used Lilac and Barbie for the flowers and Lime for the stems. As you can see I messed up a bit here and there but I do like how it all came out. I stamped the image lower on my index finger and moving it a bit higher on each nail till it is all the way to the top on my pinky – ‘growing’ on my nails. I topcoated and that was that for growth.
What do you think? Do you think it still passes as growth? It also feels a bit springy so I might just have to recreate it later in the year 😉 Don’t forget to check out the InLinkz thingum below for other ‘Growth” nail art.
