Hello Girls, How are you doing? The weather around here is getting better and the winter is subsiding. Although I fell terribly ill a couple of days back due to this change but I am good now. Today is one of those days when I am sharing a nail art I have been having an itch to try for like 2 years at least. It’s the quilted pattern!
I know it’s quite shameful for planning to do something for 2 years and still unable to do it. I saw some videos on Youtube on how few bloggers swiftly did these quilted patterns using Dental Floss.
I ran to the chemist next day and got dental floss. I will not say that I never tried quilted nails. But when I failed once, I never tried them back. You know ‘I gotto Do It Spirit’ was missing. An year passed by, I was now watching a quick video of quilted nails on Instagram and I realised, that I lost my packet of dental floss. I bought a new pack to try again. The results were better but far from what I expected so I chucked it.
Last week I saw ‘Quilted Nails’ as theme for WNAC2016 and I was like, this is it. I need to overcome it and this time I had my new floss pack with me and also Channel Charms. So with an ‘I gotto Do It Spirit’; I tried to tame it. And I did fairly well for the first time, I guess.
The polishes used are Orly – FreeSpirit and ColorClub – Look don’t Tusk. The Channel charms are from R Nails Lounge. I used Wet and Wild Matte Top Coat for mattifying. I used gold caviar beads on the quilted pattern. How do you find the finished look? If I had to sum up what went wrong in my attempts for 2 years, I would say the spirit and confidence was missing. And being able to nail this, I gained some confidence to try out other unaccomplished techniques that I have been avoiding for fear of failure.
