Hi Girls, I am happy to present my nail art for ‘Antique’ theme of Clairestelle Challenge. I was excited when I first read the theme as ‘Antique’. But as the day approached my mind went blank. I could not narrow down on what I wanted an antique nail to look like. I had all clichéd and used ideas in my mind. So after lot of ‘Google Images’, I found this Antique Urn from Dresden.
Earlier when the idea of Porcelain crossed my mind, I ignored it because I thought it wasn’t unique enough. But this urn completely changed my mind. It looked rich antique and mysteriously old. Also the way I decided to recreate it seemed challenging. Initial thought was doing an accent nail or two with the flowers depicting the flower patch and rest of the nails with the ink blue.
It would have been easier but not appealing or unique enough. But only when I decided the beautiful patch painting on every nail, the whole idea made sense to me.
I not only wanted a different antique design but also a unique implementation. And this was it. The only thing I had not anticipated was it is going to be tough.
It may sure seem easy to you, like it did to me in the beginning but to make those real looking flowers confined in the patch and the gold borders correctly took time. I painted everything with nail polish. Somehow acrylic paints were missing the impact.
The base polish is Blue Voilet by Bourjois, Look Dont Tusk by ColorClub, Gold stamping polish from El Corazon for outlines and other nail polishes. Whatsoever must have been the time taken to think through as well execute, I feel they are totally worth it. They look royal and different. Don’t they?
