Hello lovelies,

It's that time of the month...no, NOT that one :D...it's time for a monthly Paint All The Nails nail art challenge! This month's theme is dotticures and I've opted for a bright sea-inspired look.

Another BIG news is, I've changed my nail shape!!! I got sick and tired of breaking off corners on my square nails and that my right hand was never ready to be photographed because my nails were constantly breaking. So now both hands have almond shape and I'm so loving it! What about you - do you like my new nails? I'm still working out the filing technique but I'm getting there!

I wanted to start with a blannk canvas and I just love using white as my base colour. So I've painted a coat of Color Club French Tip and let it dry for a bit. After that I could start creating my sea-inspired dotticure. I've used one size of dotting tool throughout the design. The colours I've used were Models own Powder Blue, OPI Unfor-Greta-Bly Blue and OPI Dining Al Frisco.

I must admit, half-way through the nails I hated it and wanted to take it all off but I knew I didn't have time to create a new manicure for this challenge so I finished all the nails. And boy, was I wrong! I love them now! My nails look like they are a mosaic and I'm so enjoying wearing them.

 

I hope you've enjoyed today's post and stay tuned for the ABC Challenge post tomorrow ;) And don't forget to check out nail art from other bloggers below and by searching #paintallthenailsdotticures


 

Hello lovelies,

 

I've decided to join another nail art challenge - ABC Challenge!

 

ABC Challenge: A is for Abstract | Nail Art Challenge

 

 

What is the ABC Challenge?
"The ABC Challenge is a nail art challenge inspired by the letters of the alphabet. The goal is to complete all of the 26 letters. But don't let that deter you if you can't participate each week, or if you want to join in late. Post your manicures that correspond with the schedule on your social media with the hashtag #nailpolishsocietyabc. If you have a blog you can upload the Inlinkz to you post and add you link."

 

You can read everything about it in this post from Emily from Nail Polish Society, who is hosting it :)

 

My A is for Abstract. I've chosen abstract as a representation of the letter A for this week. Today's nails are inspired by a picture of a painting that I saw on Pinterest. I tried to find out the original author but I was not successful. If you know the artist, let me know!

I've started with a base coat and two coats of Color Club French Tip. Then I wanted to imitate the rough textured gradient we can see in the picture so I sponged on the nail polishes. The first colour I've used was Models Own Everyday Grey, followed by Models Own Sarong Wrap, Zoya Thandie, Models Own Red Lustre, Models Own Brunette Red and Purple Bandana. Then I've added little bit more white over the grey to give it some depth. Next step was the spiral. I've use black acrylic paint and thin nail art brush.

 

 

Lots of polishes, right? But I think the result was worth it. I really like the painting and also how my nails turned out :) What do you think?
