Freehand Cherries and A Fresh Water Colour Background.

Allo polish Pals!
How are you all doing today? I hope you are having a fabulous Thursday! INFO


Today I have a website to share with you that was created quite some time ago. I was really unhappy with it and eventually did another version which I was then equally as unhappy with! So I'm showing you the original. Maybe its not as bad as I think, I don't know.

For this manicure I began with my OPI 'Nail Envy' and added two coats of Rimmel's 'White Love' (Not my preference at all!) Next I added a coat of Pro-FX top coat as a nice barrier and moved onto my acrylics. I wanted to create a sort of fresh and happy looking water colour effect in the backgroun and on top of that added a pair of cherries to my nails. I sealed this all in with another layer of Pro-FX top coat and finished with Catrice's ' Matt & More' to give it a subtle pinky tint and matte sheen.

In my head I still want to completely redo this manicure. I wanted a cute retro and vintage feel which I just didn't achieve. Perhaps a red accent with polka dots might have hit the spot... We'll find out one day!

Have a wonderful end to your week, I'll be back on Saturday for some more nail art fun!

Love

  4. The cherries look great but I can understand what you mean by not quite getting that retro feel. Maybe a checkered background instead of the watercolor? (ha, look who's talking... I can't even freehand a straight line!)
