So, as to compensate the balance of the universe for such a fail, I've got for you today not one, but two Christmas Tree nail designs - yey!! ;)
Let's get to it, then:
Here's Christmas Tree Nail Design No.1
I started by applying Leticia Well Metallic Matter No.15 on all nails but my ring finger.
I then applied Bellaoggi Snow White on my ring finger and did a gradient of pink, mint green and yellow on top of it with acrylic paints.
I then placed some stripping tape in a diagonal scheme, to make for the lights on the Christmas Tree.
Finally, I painted a coat of clear polish and applied some pine green flocking powder over it.
Sooo fluffy! :) I actually enjoyed it more than the first time I tried it (see here - such a difference, btw! Can you see some improvement? ;))
And I scooped out a star from a glitter polish by Flormar, to close the deal.
And here's Christmas Tree Nail Design No.2
I kept the scheme as the above one, so you could have terms for comparison.
And this time I went with another dreaded technique for me: sugar spun.
After using the same white polish I made blobs of paint out of seven different green nail polishes.
I had to wait for ages before I could make the sugar spun magic - I even had time to fold some clothes pieces, so you see how long I waited ;)
I then tried to go for thin stripes of polish, but as you can see, I wasn't all that successful, was I now? :/
I completed the look with a golden star made in acrylic paint and some dots in the same colour.
I can't say this was any more successful than my first tries (here and here) but at least I tried ;)
Now that you've seen both, which is your favourite? I wanted to try these techniques again, seeing I'm not one to simply abandon something when it doesn't work out OK the first time.
But with such results, maybe I should, hey? ;)
Here's a snapshot of them both put together, so you can see which you'll elect your favourite ;)
Hope you're having a most fantastic Sunday, with your loved ones :)
