Allo polish Pals!
Happy weekend to you all, I hope you are doing fantastically? How was your week? To be honest mine was kind of dull - but I needed that. I got some stuff done I really needed to do before next week when I'll be running around like a headless chicken. I feel so relieved some of the big 'to do's' have been ticked off.
I don't think I have too much planned this weekend, hopefully I may be going out today with my sister in law and on Sunday we'll be making our own pizza's (I'm not really supposed to eat pizza but shh..It's my poison!) with all different kinds of toppings, yum!
Today I have another one of my weird acrylic-gradients for you again. I had hoped to make the centers look almost 3D like I have done previously with my diamond nail art.. I don't think I really achieved it but I had fun painting this none the less.
For this manicure I began with my fave base coat, Mezmris Nail Lacquer's 'Armor Up'. Once dry I applied two thin coats of Catrice's 'Generation whYte' and allowed to dry. I then added a thin coat of Pro-FX top coat to create a nice smooth barrier. I followed on with my acrylics by creating a thin line down the center of my nails and roughly drawing where my diamonds would be. I then blended every section from black to white using my acrylic paints and my bamboo brush (really, really, really time consuming may I add.) I then used different shades of blue and a blob of Hema's 'Happy Silver' polish in the center to try and make them gleam. I finished it all off with my Pro-FX top coat but didn't really like the out come so on went the matte top coat by Wet 'N' Wild!
What do you think of my manicure? Whilst I was photographing it I noticed that through the camera it appeared almost like an optical illusion, it was rather trippy!
What do you think of my split gradient and diamond combo? Are you doing anything fun this weekend?
Thankyou for visiting! I hope you have a fabulous weekend, I'll be back again on Monday :)
