Hi everybody!! How are you on this beautiful Sunday? Well, to me it is beautiful, because today is my birthday :D. I am always so excited about it. I don’t know why, but I am. Like when I was a little girl. And that excitement just wont go away :).
Today’s challenge was “recreation”. I decided to recreate my last mani with the balloons, which I had done for my daughter’s birthday. I wanted to do it in a totally different way and I think I succeeded.
You can check out my previous art here and then you can tell me whether I was successful or not.
This time around I chose a black base Essie – Licorice. It was really opaque, a one coater, but I did two coats. Over that black polish I applied Picture Polish – Holiday. A very beautiful and special top coat with a holo effect. It is filled with multi coloured flakes and it brings out the 3D effect which is hardly seen in photos. Just gorgeous!!
I tried to take pictures from different angles to capture that holo effect, but my camera was unsuccessful.
And now to the balloons. I made them in four different colours. Essie – Blanc, Essie – Forever Yummy, Picture Polish – Fairy Floss and Picture Polish – Cyan.
I did them with a special nail art brush.
They look better from a distance than on a macro shot :D.
And now I will go and enjoy my day with my family. Have fun, I know I will :).
