Happy Friday! FINALLY! I am so glad to see the weekend here. Seriously I am melting in this heat and humidity and I just want to lie under the aircon, do nothing but relax and cool down proper. I am also sure that won’t happen but a girl lives to dream and right now my dream is cooler weather. I don’t ask for much right? :P. What are you doing this weekend? Have any fun plans? I am excited to show you todays nails so let’a get cracking!
It’s time for another Friday Triad with Juanita and Joyce . So once a month we will make turns choosing someones nail art to use as inspiration for this post. You can look forward to these posts on the last friday of each month. This month it was my turn to choose. I chose this post by Paulinas Passions and I absolutely love the colours, the stamping, just the whole combination. I don’t ever consider what I would do with the choice (and this sometimes comes back to bite me) but I generally choose something that just appeals to me. This might be one of those times it comes back to bite me….. Let me show you what I did.
I started with 2 coats of Ulta3 – Watermelon on my pinky and index and 2 coats of Sinful Colors – Snow me white on my middle and ring finger. Once that was completely dry I went to work with the stamping. I first started with making the decals of the flowers. I stamped using BPL-029 and Mundo de Unas – Black and then I coloured in the flowers using Ulta3 – Watermelon. I only wanted to use a specific part of the image (the flowers). The image had 2 flowers next to or close to each other so I isolated those and I also suspected I might need more than 1 so I did 2 and left that to dry completely. While it was drying I started with the lines. I stamped on my ring finger using Lina – Make your mark 02 and Mundo de Unas – Black. On my middle nail I used the same image and polish but only stamped a part of my nail. I then added the flowers to the other side of my middle nail, layering the flowers as well. I topcoated and ta-daa!
I didn’t really intend to recreate but I did love the combination and the colour immediately reminded me of this stunning polish. Of course I didn’t have the polish or the stamping plate she used so I struggled to figure out what I could use. For split second I was considering using completely different colours but I kept coming back this polish. Eventually, I just made it work as best I could. I really really like it though. What do you think? Don’t forget to check out Joyce and Juanita, I am so excited to see what they come up with!
