Happy Friday. Even better, happy public holiday if you’re in SA! It’s been a loooooong week and I am happy to just have a long weekend of nothing but stuff I enjoy. I don’t know who is going to clean and wash dishes and cook (probably still me) but I can at least pretend right? What are you doing this weekend?
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 we had a stunning choice from Joyce. Joyce chose this gorgeous nail art design from Sassy Shelly. I absolutely love this and immediately had a few ideas but when it came to actually doing it, it didn’t go so well. In the end I went in a completely different direction. Let me show you what I did,
I started with 1 coat of Sinful Colors – Black on black on all my nails and let that dry for a little bit. I then used 2 coats of ILNP – Electric carnival over the black on each nails and left that to dry completely. Once it was dry I stamped on my middle and ring finger using BP-L015 and Mundo de Unas – Black. I topcoated everything and then went over it again with a matte topcoat.
I don’t know how I feel about this. I know what you’re thinking. How does this go with the original inspiration right? Well, pretty polish with some colour shifting – check. Black stamping – check. Matte twist on the base polish – check. Ok so it’s not really a great match but it was completely inspired by the original. I absolutely love how beautiful that polish looked matte and I actually think electric carnival looks amazing matte as well. The colour shift is beautiful. What do you think? Does it qualify? I won’t say I am crazy about this but at this point I had already started getting the break and I just wanted to get it done. Can you at least see the connection? What do you think about Electric carnival? Don’t forget to check out Joyce and Juanita, I can’t wait to see what they come up with!
