It’s literally the last day of August. Tomorrow is basically spring (I’m not ready) and also my birthday month (not really a big deal) but even more noteworthy, it’s the start of #31DC2018. Yup, I’m doing it. What are you doing this weekend? Any fun plans? You know where I’ll be 😉
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 and even though it was easy to find the person to use, I had a crazy hard time choosing a mani. Every time I saw one I knew this was it, but then the next day there would be something new. I eventually settled on this look from Debbie, otherwise knows as @Ladyandthe_stamp. I am a HUGE fan of her work and I think I am drawn to everything she does. I chose this look because I as was very drawn to the colour combination. So I knew I wanted to recreate the look in some way. Let me show you
I started with 2 coats of China Glaze – Accent piece on my pinky, middle and index and 2 coats of Catrice – Deep dark water on my ring finger. While that was drying I started making the decals. I stamped using BPL-029 and Mundo de Unas – White. I then coloured in the flowers using China Glaze – Born to rule. I then applied these flowers to my index and middle finger. I topcoated and that was that.
I went with no studs compared to the original but mostly because I couldn’t find my studs at the time (I did eventually, once I was done). I kind of wish I tried it matte as well but I didn’t hate it glossy. When I look at the original I think I like the matte more though. What do you think? I really really love the original by Debbie and like all her work, I am very drawn to it. I just love the combination of colours and very into the mustard shades too. I love this one and have a swatch as well.
China Glaze – Accent piece
This is 2 coats without topcoat. This is a mustardy orange shade with a shimmer. It also has a stunning formula and applies beautifully. I love this colour and the shimmer just adds to the gorgeousness.
What do you think? Does it work? Do you like the combination of colours as well? Don’t forget to check out Joyce and Juanita, to see how they playas always. Have a terrific weekend and I will see you tomorrow for the start of the 31 Day challenge!
