The weather is getting colder and drier these days, isn’t it? So it is automatically dropping hints for me to do nails related to fall, autumn, dried leaves, wood and so on. But after seeing the finished work on my nails, now I have totally forgotten on what I intended to do actually. Lol
I had something else in mind for sure. I remember that I definitely wanted the mattified wood log prints on my nails, which I have pretty much got in my end result. Rest I was looking at some autumn leaves when I felt the nail art looked too dry and barren. So I thought some flowers would bring some life and happiness to my nails.
I did try stamping some loose maple leaves (Gradient of yellow, orange and brown) but all together the nail art gave feel of a very gloomy dry weather. I spoilt my accent and middle finger trying the leaves and I was too lazy to remove now, so I just applied Barry M Paprika on them which became base for my new design in mind.
After a lot of failures and trial & Error, I finally had OPI My Vampire is a Buff and Barry M Paprika as my base. I stamped the wood log print using Bundle Monster CYO 2014 Plate 308 with Barry M Paprika. Over them I stamped my flowers from same plate and Born Pretty Stamping Polish – Ya Qin. They are bright Mexican pink in color and stamp perfectly on black. I so love this line of stamping polish. You can buy it here (Polish #15, Item No 21282) and get a 10% off as well with coupon code HQBQ10.
On Barry M Parrika I stamped same flowers with Mundo de Unas ‘Cream’. I mattified the entire nail art then. And just to complete the look and make nail art look complete I added neon pink studs at the centre of the flowers. There may have been a lot of failures and retakes on this nail art but I am quite happy with the outcome. I am glad things went wrong initially, or I would have never landed here. What do you think girls? Was it a good thing I landed here, or leaves would have been better?
