OMD Day 17: GRADIENT! I love gradients! For this design I painted my nails yellow. Then i chose four more colors and made a different color gradient on each nail. Well, the gradients didn’t come out flaweless as you can see in the top picture, so I decided to add my favoirite nail art design. Palm trees! I can’t get enough of palm tree nail art!
Colors used: Yellow ”Isa Dora – Mellow Yellow”, Blue ”Isa Dora – Miami Blue”, Purple ”Isa Dora – Bella Vita”, Green ”Isa Dora – Marzipan”, Peach ”China Glaze – Mimosa’s Before Mani’s”
From time to time I get the question of what brush I use for my palm trees. The reason why it’s hard to give a qiuck answer that question is because I always cut my brushes. So here’s my brush. The name of it is Artist’s Water Colour Sable – Rigger size 1 by Winstor & Newton, England. It’s pure kolinsky and the hair is about 16 millimeters long. As you see I have cut it quite much! Never cut the lenght of the brush, then you’ll lose the pointy tip of the brush. But I cut away almost 80 percent of the thickness of the brush. I bougth it in an artist’s shop in Stockholm for about 80 sek (12 usd). I use this brush for palms and zebra stripes. This is my most precious brush and the palms almost paints themselves!
OMD: DELICATE! Well, my English is quite poor but I just realized that the word ”delicate” can mean different things. Obviously the first thing I thought about was something delicious and yummy and juicy… like strawberries!! This polish it Leopard Lacquer ”King Crab”. Isn’t it delicious!!? It’s a vibrant deep red jelly filled with small black hexagons, bigger red hexagons and huge red squares. I LOVE the red squares!! And the black glitter really makes the polish look like yummy, jelly, juicy, ripe, mellow strawberries! This is tree coats, no undies. I love this look!
OMD Day 16: This is my first attemt on a ruffian maniure! I always thought ruffian manis look so elegant and now I finally tried it out myself. Maybe it’s a bit much with the leopard prints.. I actually thought it looked very nice without it but I forgot to photograph it before I added the animal print, boho. Then I painted under the nails! So cool! I don’t know why I don’t paint under the nails more often! It makes the look complete in a way!
This is China Glaze ”Innocence” from the Crème Coture Collection. It’s a sweet jelly-like pink/nude. When I use two coats I find it great for a french manicure. But in these pictures I used tree coats. As you see it doesn’t give full coverage, but it has a smooth and soft surface.
OMD Day 15: HEARTS! Here’s a LOOOOVE-manicure to represent tosays theme. Xoxo ❤
This is China Glaze ”Mimosa’s Before Mani’s” from the spring 2013 collection Avant Garden. It’s an orangy peach with gold shimmer. Lovely spring/summer color.
OMD Day 14: Flowers! Another accent nail to represent today’s theme in the OMD challange! I don’t do much flower design nails nowadays, but when I do it’s always roses. I like doing roses and the variety of looks coming with them. They can look quite real, or vintage, or doodle like this.
And today I give you Leopard Lacquer ”Starfish”, which is a soft pink tinted base filled with silver shimmer, orange hexagons and silver stars! I put two coats of Starfish on top of Mimosa’s Before Mani’s.
