They Just Pop!

Saturday I came across a picture on FB of this tutorial here.
My idea? Let's try and do something s i m i la r  to our nails, shall we?

And so I did! :)

It began by looking like something like this:



I've used Purple Professional No.18 as a base colour and then drew a mini nail on top of it, following the shape of my nails as much as possible, using Flormar P037.
Now this was a very sheer nude colour and it took me three coats to look like this over black.
Phew! That's why I took pictures of how it looked, in case I was about to ruin it all ;)
hehe



I then went for the dots and dared not to do anything else! haha :)
The red I used was Bourjois 10jours No.16.



Though not entirely a look-alike from the makeup look, I still think these came out really pretty! :)



In fact, I got so happy with how they turned out, I still got them on!
And they reminded me of a challenge opportunity I was nearly forgetting about.
Shopie is hosting another competition and though there are no nail items as prizes, it's always fun to participate! You should do so, too! ;)


I'm now off to think of a cool design to send her and hope you'll do the same - I wanna see your nails! hehe :)

Make sure you check the blog tomorrow or late this evening for a slight design change ;)


Hugs & Kissies,

    1. hehe - I'm happy you liked it! :D
      I'm not really a big nail artist (yet!) and was afraid I'd do more damage than good if I went further on the artistic thing ;)

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one who takes photos in between stages in case there is an accident. This is cute, I love pop art stuff.

    1. hahha - I've learnt from experience, that it's best to be safe than sorry (have been sorry way too many times ;))
      I'm so glad you liked it! I also got pleased with how it came out - I shall try to use this look in a slightly different manner some other time! :D
