Image
Hello Everyone!!!
Welcome to Day 27 challenge - "INSPIRED BY" ARTWORK. Wow this challenge just inspire me. Its making me do thing that I never thought of. I had no idea what I was going to make for this challenge. Artwork - not something  we see everyday right? I mean I barely go to art exhibition or try to explore the world of art. So I just got once choice - Google again. It showed lots of famous artwork but hard thing was to translate them on nails. *Hours past* then when I saw a piece of artwork that inspired me in minute. And I decided this one or nothing else.  Let me show you what I came up with.  I choose a piece called  "Inukshuk" by Ted Harrison . I came to know Ted Harrison is one of Canada’s most popular artists. His distinctive style of painting is both colorful and sophisticated yet retains an innocent charm. My ring finger is supposed to be an exact replica of the art but I have improvised few things. I used just acrylic paint for this Mani.  As I…

Hello Everyone!!
Day 24 Challenge- "INSPIRED BY" BOOK. Honestly this was the only challenge where I knew what I want on my nails from beginning [ Of course there was huge brainstorming between me and my inner myself about which book to choose :P]. So I was desperately looking forward for it. Being a little crazy about  novels I had lots of options  I picked up recent my Read as  its cover page seems to be quite easy translate on my nails. Let me show you the pic!!

MANUSCRIPT FOUND IN ACCRA - PAULO COELHO. I read it few months back  and I love it. It can be literally a guidelines for Life.  When I was searching my novels collection for inspiration - One glance in this book and I knew this has to be ONE!.

"Well that easy I have done few movie Mani"- That what I thought but NO when needed idea my brain just stop working [ It just ME or that happens to you as well?!?] I had many plans for movie just so if I fail and that happen. I was so tired repainting again and again. Then when My brother asked what I am up to and I said about today challenge. And in second he gave me a brilliant idea. Let me show you what his idea was. Guessed it? Yes its "JOBS"- It only takes one person to start a revolution. The extraordinary story of Steve Jobs. I watched the movie few days back. I love it.

Hello Everyone!!!
From today the hardest challenge has started - Inspired By. Today challenge is color. We need to make a design inspired by a color. I got a  question here because this challenge made me confused. A COLOR. So what we are supposed to do paint our nails with just one color, or we can use shades of color? o.O Who knows?!? Well anyway I decided to go with two of my favorite color. Blue and Black. I hope this is according to challenge. A little bit of more explanation on this challenge would have been easier to me. Let me show you the pic!!  Whatcha think? Colors that I used are Caiuro CR #16 Blueberry and Max Black. As I wanted to focus mainly on blue I minimized the use of black polish.
I am obsessed with skull. So I have to make one in this challenge. And today was the perfect opportunity. I Painted my nails with bluebeery then french manicured with black in all nails except ring finger. With my trustee toothpick I made cross bone above the french manicure. For my ring…

31DC2013 Day 20: Water Marble Pattern Nails

Image
Hello Everyone!!
Day 20 Challenge - Water Marble. I wasn't looking forward for this challenge. This has to be most difficult challenge for me so far. Water Marble is not in my forte. I suck at it. I am always fascinated by water marble. Its fun and amazing right? I mean who thought you can drop a polish in water ,swirl it and do something fantastic from it. I DIDNT - Never in my wildest dream.  I was amused when I knew we can do something like that. But its not that easy like it sound. Water marble is very hard technique. Its always turn into horrible disaster. I try  this technique whenever I brought new polish but NEVER  has it gone once right Sigh -.-" It didn't this time either. I tried it like four or five times but Nada the technique keep turning into BIG FAIL. I thought of  skipping this challenge. But WAIT!!! Look what I found in my hidden treasure :D
OH YEAH!!! WATER MARBLE. I was searching my computer and found this on my collection. Yes this will be  Throwback na…

31DC2013 Day 19: Galaxy Pattern Nails

Image
Hello Everyone!!! Day 19 Challenge- Galaxy. I find this design very interesting because Galaxy Nail Art differs and are personal to those who create it. There are of course tons of ways to do this Mani.  I have just done galaxies mani once in past using darker shade color which turn out okay . But as Pastels Galaxies are so on trend I decided to give it a try. So instead of using darker shade I have used all the pastels colors that I owe.Let me show you the pic.
The colors that I used are Caiuro CR CR#20 Green TeaCR#15 Orange, CR #16 Blueberry  and Charm limit 06 White. And for stars I used MAC Glitter polish.
 I loved the final product. It looked more beautiful in person. Its kind of hard to capture the beauty of pastels color through camera. I painted my nails with Green Tea and let it dry completely. Then with sponge I slowly  dabbed orange and blue. I quickly apply a top coat. Once the Mani was dry completely I added the Stars from MAC Glitter Polish and finally with toothpick adde…

Hello Everyone!!!
Day 17 Glitter Challenge. I was bit disappointed for this challenge because you might know I don't owe any nail art tool not even Glitter. So there wasn't much choice for me beside to do simple  glitter top Mani. But when I was painting a Mani- idea strike me and I end up doing different but still very simple design. I owe just two Glitter polish both from MAC.  I pick up one bottle and start implementing my idea. Let me show you pic!!  Like I said very simple. But I have put a great effort on this one. See that Glitter nail polish above?!? it contains lot of Red Blue and Golden small glitter. So What I did is French tip my nail and with toothpick I pick up  those glitter Individual. That was so tedious. The glitter are so small it doesn't easy go along with with toothpick easily and when I needed blue one there just used to be red glitter on brush and vice verse. sigh -.-"
The original idea was to do a kind music wave in my ring finger - but by the t…
