Hello Girls, as you know I have dedicated the month of June for ‘Inspired Nails’ only. It can be any form of inspiration: a nail art, a painting, a print, a color combination, a dress, a curtain, just anything in short. Today I have gorgeous nail art inspired by some old glass paintings I was browsing. I was stunned by the powerful combination of traditional Gold and Maroonish Brown. I saw image of lots of glass arches made in this royal combination in old paintings and monuments.
I was really intrigued. I decided to figure out a decently intricate and antique type print to get on the glass painting I was gonna wear on my nails.
My initial thoughts were freehand, as always is. But then I thought let me rather do a nice delicate stamping with like print and fill in colors with Lead Light technique so that it looks nearer to glass painting not only in design but finish too.
I wanted the nail art to look a definite royal and slightly antique too. So I chose a design which looked very similar to the image in my mind. For the vampy marronish brown I used Fun Lacquer ‘SuperStar’. It’s a royal brown holo with maroon undertones. This was so apt for the nail art I had planned for.
On the other nails I applied Gold Ultra Holo from Starrily ‘King Midas’. It’s the most gorgeous gold holo polish I have seen or owned. I stamped using Bundle Monster Festive Plate BM S308. The image could not have been as correct as this, it so matched my theme.
I filled in the design with brown with Lead Light technique. On the other nails, I added the tiny gold triangle and dot charms from BornPretty Store. I should buy back ups of these, I am in so love with them.
This was good marriage of traditional glass like painting and holos and I enjoyed doing that. I think I got myself a classic nails. What do you say girls?
