Hello lovelies,

 

I am so proud to tell you that I'm one of the chosen bloggers participating in piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013! I've missed out on the last year one as I didn't know what it was until blogger's posts started to appear. Last year, 80 bloggers posted swatches of two PP shades on the same day but this year the 'rules' are different.

 

I've been sent three shades (Heavy Metal, Vegas and Bombshell) and I was asked to create my most awesome nail art using these three shades.That is a big challenge because I've done a lot of nail art over the years and I don't know if this is truly the best nail art I've done. Let's have a look...

 

 

 

 

I've tried to recreate Mehndi designs that I often see done in henna tattoo. I've always loved the intricate flower designs so I gave it a shot myself. I have started off with a white base and then painted the patterns with Pictures Polish Heavy Metal, Vegas and Bombshell.

 

 

 

 

We were supposed to do a tutorial as well but since I didn't know if this design will lead somewhere and if I'll even use it I didn't do one. Oh silly me! Anyway, I've basically always started to paint from the side of the nail outwards, changing the colours. Here is a tutorial on how to do the thumb pattern I like the most (sorry for the quality, this is the first time I've tried this kind of tutorial):

Hello lovelies,

Hope you're all enjoying the weekend. I have waited for a long long time to show you today's manicure! I loved this design so much I've worn it for days.

I have used Cirque Queen Majesty as a base colour and then acrylic paint for the rest. Scroll down for tutorial ;)

The ring is gorgeous Misha Lilac Crystal Snake Ring from Talullah Tu which I've received to feature in my post. The ring is very detailed snake with lilac crystals, very sparkly. It fit me perfectly and it wasn't uncomfortable to wear.

I've done a video tutorial for you guys so you can see how I've done this one stroke design step by step. I'd love to see your recreations so please tag me! x

So what do you think? Do you like abstract one stroke painting as much as I do?
