Hi Friends, how have you been? I feel like I am talking (or writing whatever!) to you guys after long. Although I have been regular in my posts, I wrote them like 15 days back and scheduled them. So I am writing one today after half a month or more. I must say, I missed it. I am having crazy busy days at work so I return home in half senses. Anyways, I don’t want to rant here. I am writing this post on a happy note today because finally I did my twin nails with Anita. We chose an abstract intricate colourful design.
Anita blogs at Stylethosenails and I have not only been her friend for more than a year but also her fan. I adore her freehand and her honesty to nail art. We decided to do a twin nail long back but our busy schedule kept us from doing it. Bearing in mind that my twin nail had to be with Anita, I chose an intricate detailed design that I saw on Pinterest. I think I went a bit far because it was challenging indeed.
It took quite long to do all the detailing in the nail art, but I enjoyed it. I don’t know if I have been able to recreate the pattern but it was an honest attempt. I have tried to pick up elements from this design and recreate it on my nails.
The nail art is totally freehand with acrylic paints. The base is Sally Hansen White On. It is one of the best intense white I have. I used Pure Color Brush No 9 for all the detailing work. The acrylic paints were sent by http://BornPrettyStore.com for review. They are a pack of 12 colors and come in tube. There are two things I like about these acrylic paints. One is that they are well pigmented, so colors don’t die out when I dilute them. And secondly, they come in tubes so it very easy to work with them. I just have to squeeze a little to get them out, as opposed to digging from the bottled acrylic paints with brush.
On top of that they are light weight and easy to carry. I got them for review but you can buy it here. If you use coupon code HQBQ10 you can enjoy a sitewide 10% off.
Do let me know your thoughts on my nail art and also head over Stylethosenails to check out some great work by Anita.
