Hi Girls, I am on the Day 16 of OMD Challenge and the theme is GLITTER PLACEMENT. Now, I am usually good at this stuff. I love glitter placement nail arts, although I have not done a lot of them in past. But whenever and wharever little I have done, the results were stunning.
So I was really looking forward to this theme. But when the D day came I stumped. This is not my best or even a good shot of glitter placement nails. I chose a wrong base. I don’t know what was I thinking ?? I just felt like painting my nails steel grey and I did it without even thinking of the consequences.If it would at all compliment the glitters I would use or finalising what kind of glitter I would use, nothing got in my head.
Usually any sane person will decide all this before hand and pick the color. I picked color and painted first and then sat down wondering which glitter and what design 🙁 :(. And the lack of planning reflects on my nails.
I think I am pressurising myself a lot to complete this challenge and hence best is not coming out of me. Forget the best, the normal me is also not acting. My hubby pointed this out yesterday. He said, you started nail art as a passion because it relaxes you. Don’t let it become a task for you. And in the madness to complete challenge and do nail art and post, I didn’t realise that I have actually been doing it like a job. I am like running on deadlines.
So, I have decided I am going to go easy for the challenge and do only as much as what makes me happy. And not doing what adds pressure to my life. Office is already on deadlines and managing home is no less, I don’t want nail art to be added to the list.
Anyways, not much to say about nail art. I used Elle 18 grey polish for base color and stuck few loose tear shape glitter with nail glue. I used some round pink neon studs to brighten up the entire nail art. And boy, thats the only right thing I did in this entire nail art. It lit up the nail art instantly. I love neon glitters totally. You can buy them on http://BornprettyStore.com . It was sent to me for review. You can use my coupon code HQBQ10 to get 10% off sitewide.
