Happy easter ^^ I hope you enjoyed your time. I did a whole lot of nothing and it felt darn good. The Boyfriend and I spent four days near the beach, far from Barcelona where not even work can reach you... Jeeze, I can't believe it's over!
I thought I'd be productive and fill in my archives with pretty pictures of intricated nail art, but you're looking at the one manicure I've done during these holidays. Whatever, I am proud of it. It was my first time freehanding vintage roses. Heck, it was my first time freehanding anything on my nails!
For this manicure I've used Kiko Celebration LE in Blush as a base, and then added some fun as follows:
- the pink dots and the darker pink on the roses is Kiko Celebration LE in Pearly Pink Iguana [I doubt that morph of iguana actually exists, but that name makes it sound just like the ultimate lizard!]
- my middle finger and the dots on my pinky have been done using Cina Glaze Sun-Kissed
- the darker part of the leaves are done with Sfera Mariana
- the lighter pink and green were obtained by mixing the color with Kiko Blush
Now that gave me a good kick to keep on going with freehanding stuff, and I wonder what should I attempt next. Mind you, before you give me any suggestion... I get frustrated quite easily. Hence, replicating Magritte's Golconde or Las Meninas by Velazquez is out of the question. For now. I am sure we'll find a lot of interesting things to disfigure in between *evil laugh*
This is your first time?! I cannot believe it! You totally nailed those!! I love everything on the nails! They go so well together and the roses are beautiful!ResponderEliminar
hmmm, sheeps? clouds? or rabbits! Those are pretty simple which means less frustrations! XD You are gonna get addicted! :D Welcome to freehanding-world! XD
Awwwww thank you :D Rabbits would be a great pick! I'll keep this in mind :)Eliminar
This is so cute! It definitely doesn't look like your first time at freehanding roses! :)ResponderEliminar
Thank you ^^Eliminar
omg! is that really your first attempt to the roses? these are PERFECT! I've tried freehand flowers so many times and it always look crap and childish! love this design!!!ResponderEliminar
Pls, send me some sun... Here, in Poland, it's still snowing and snowing :((( I have enough of it!!!
Thank you, Tamit! Right now it's raining in Barcelona so... sadly I have no sun to send your way ATM! :'(Eliminar
I think you did a great job! The roses looks amazing and I really liked the combination of all the nails.ResponderEliminar

For the next time you can do more flower nail arts maybe? I started with flowers and I mean spring is coming soon right (hopefully! it's been so cold in Ger for the last couple of weeks -.-)
It's so pretty - well done!ResponderEliminar
