Antique

Good morning, everybody !

I was very sad when the previous nail art collaboration ended, but the girls and I decided we couldn't leave things as they were. We all enjoyed so much being part of a group of really talented girls that had a purpose, an idea and the resources to create incredibly beautiful manicures !
Therefore, it's time for fresh new beginnings, so prepare yourselves for a new and intriguing collaboration - the "Alphabet nail art challenge". I will post every Saturday and each manicure will have a different title, depending on the letter of the respective week.



Today's first theme in the "Alphabet nail art challenge" is the letter 'A', and I chose to create an Antique manicure using this cool decoration from Born Pretty Store - a golden vintage 3D 'fleur-de-lis' piece.
I started off with a base coat, then painted the accent-nail with black polish and glued the 3D piece in the center of the nail. I painted the other nails gold, but because the shade of gold I have didn't quite match the color of the 3D piece, I applied a golden glitter on top, which made a huge difference. Once that dried, I created a distressed look by taking the black polish again, wiping most of it on the neck of the bottle and applying it on the nails, using very short strokes - even a kid could do it ! I learned this technique from Chalkboard Nails and it was my first time doing it, but I really love the result ! ^_^ Needless to say that the top coat made it look all glossy and perfect.




So... now onto your opinions ! Do you like the theme, the idea, the result, the pictures ?... I'd love to see what you think about this design.
Thank you for your time ! ^_^


Please stop by the other girls to see their manicures for this theme !
