Hi Beauties, I am sufficiently charged up for June Inspirations and I have been frantically looking for inspirations with all my might. I have been able to accumulate heaps of exciting inspirations that are giving me the desired to push to translate them to nail art. However, now the list of inspirations has again gone so overwhelming that it feels like I could keep running the inspiration month for another year. And the list will not be exhausted!!. Anyways, today’s nail art is inspired by the talented ‘Manish Malhotra’.
He is a magician who turns rags to magic carpets (magic carpet is a metaphor for designer couture). I saw this extremely classy and delicate gown on instagram the other day and was speechless. It is so pretty. The colours and designs are very subtle and sophisticated.
There is barely any contrast in the gown yet it is impactful. The transitions are very smooth and designs are minimalistic. Now it is difficult to recreate such a master piece with barely any element or print standing out.
But I sure wanted to give it an honest shot. I scanned my entire stash of regular polish, stamping polish and stamping image to put together this nail art. I used Maybelline Colorshow ‘All That Glitters’ as base, it’s a gorgeous light gold textured polish, then stamped with Kaleidoscopic Beige stamping polish No 81 and BornPrettyStore stamping plate BPL024. In the beginning I thought that this nail art failed terribly because the minute details and designs were barely visible on my nails.
But later on trying some different clicks and lighting arrangements, I could manage to capture some details in the photographs. Pheww! Literally I clicked over 100 images to get these few resembling like the designers creation. It took a hard work and still I am wondering at the end was I good enough? What do you think?
