Hello, everybody !
Today's theme in the "Alphabet nail art challenge" is the letter 'E', and I chose to create an Exotic manicure. I used two gorgeous and hot nail polishes and combined them into a gradient, then used acrylic paint to freehand some hibiscus flowers.
I started with a base coat and then applied two coats of Golden Rose Holiday #78. This is definitely the must-have of the summer. It's a hot orange textured nail polish, but also has some fine silver shimmer in it. It looks gorgeous on tanned skin, it applies wonderfully and dries really fast. Once that dried, I used a makeup sponge and dabbed the hot pink China Glaze 'Love's A Beach' on the tips of my nails. Then I just started free-handing some hibiscus flowers with black acrylic paint. To seal the design, I used Seche Vite and, even though the finish was textured at first, the top coat made it a little bit smoother and more even. I wore this manicure for a whole week about a month ago (if you're wondering why my nails look long again ^_^). I got tons of compliments and everyone doubted that I actually painted the flowers, arguing that they were decals. I actually had to make them look up-close and show them that there were no two identical flowers. I kinda hate it when that happens, but it also means that the design is perfect, right ? :p
So... now onto your opinions ! Do you like the theme, the idea, the result, the pictures ?... I'd love to see what you think about this design. Thank you for your time ! ^_^
