Hello Girls, Its cold and Chilly these days and what better time to do a Sweater print Mani. All my Winter and Christmas Nails Art collection would have been so incomplete without this. Also, this is the last prompt for STN Challenges which kind of makes me sad :(. After this, I am going on Challenge Break.
Yes, I just want to do what I feel like doing instead of prompts pushing me. I participated in a lot of challenges in last couple of months. As I said in my earlier posts-‘Challenges Kill Creativity’. And, too many challenges definitely do kill creativity and make nail art a task and a target to achieve. It becomes more of a ‘To Do’ list than ‘Wishlist’. But, they also push you to the untried zone and challenge your comfort zone. So the balance and hence the choice has to be fine.
So at this point after around two months running after the challenge, my wishlist and untried polish and plates call me!!I want to try all the untried polishes I had been ignoring and my whole bunch of new stamping plates biting dust.
Anyways, back to the nail art. I definitely wanted my sweater to look soft and delicate so I chose soft pastel colors. Somehow, I relate more to this kind of sweater print. I have seen and worn more this print more than the others. And as I say and believe, if I can’t relate and visualize a design, I can’t get it on my nails.
For the base I used, Models Own Blueberry Muffin and stamped it with Models Own Sunhat. The plate I used is Konad. I had been saving this image for an year to use it for Sweater Nails. And finally the burden is off. I used pink glittery flocking powder on my accent and thumb to get the fuzzy and fluffy feel of sweater.
I hope you can relate to my idea of Sweater print and feel. Leave your comments and let me know if it reminds you of a sweater?
