Whenever I do more detailed nail art, I always end up going to bed really late and my eyes and head ache the next morning - not goo!
So, I'm trying to balance things out - even for the sake of the blog - and interchanging a detailed nail art mani with another simpler one.
Still, I can't go about without any nail art on my nails - just can't!
That's what makes skittletes so awesome - you can still go for nail art but seeing you don't have to do it on all your nails, you end up saving time ;)
And here's where I need you - I definitely need practice at this.
I'm not yet too good judging which combos will look good. Mix and match is an art and I envy those ladies out there doing it to perfection!
Give me your honest opinion, then!
How do you think I did with this one?
I'm not too sure if the yellow is a make it or break it kind of addition.
I keep thinking I should've gone with gold. BF said these are pretty, quite fun and summery and he was all thumbs up.
Still... I'm not 100% convinced...
I started this one by painting my index and pinkie white - Bellaoggi Snow White (and, yes, it's getting goopy :s)
I painted my middle finger and thumb two coats of black - Purple Professional No.18.
And my ring finger got covered in two coats of Dermacélsia Eternal.
I went for some tape manicure, which I love 'cause it looks so good, but hate, too, 'cause it takes so long.
That's why I loved incorporating it here - I only did two nails and it wasn't too time consuming ;)
I did horizontal stripes on my index and vertical ones on my pinkie, with my current favourite yellow shade - Inocos Cocó - and this is where I think I should've gone with gold...
Maybe? What do you think? Does yellow look okay?
I then applied one coat of clear polish and applied a feather accessory to it.
I love how it looks but I absolutely hated putting it on. I trimmed the ends, but then had to file the rough edge. It didn't go too well and I kept fearing I'd file my nail down instead.
I mean! they're already short as it is! :s
Last but not least, my favourite part of this manicure - guess who's in love wih gold leaf?
I got it at my favourite nail art store (thank you, Verniz de Luxo - Pri, you're the greatest! *) and it came in a pot like this.
I took a piece of it with my tweezer and as I broke it down to smaller pieces I'd apply it over my nail - that easy!
And now I'd love to read some of your comments on this one and also some advice (please help me with the feather application!!!!).
I hope you're hanging in there - tomorrow is Friday already (about time!).
Have a fantastic evening, lovely ones and be on the lookout for tomorrow's post - it's gonna be a special one, I promise you ;)
Hugs & Kissies,
