Dotting

Negative

1

The negative space nail art is definitely my favourite at the moment. If only I had little more time , I’d be playing with tape and polish all day. Its so much fun!!

The blue polish in this mani is Bourjois 1seconde Bleu moonlight. Its a gem. A true one coater. I have just one coat here. It dries fast and glossy too. The other is Corail magique. Another favourite of mine.

Two greens and a pink

1

The dots are messy but the colors are pretty. I saw a beautiful dot gradient on Instagram and mine looks downright ugly next to it. But eh…. 😀

I really like these two colors together. I think I had a dress in that combination long long long ago. 😛

I have had one of those crazy busy weeks. All I want to do this weekend is put my feet up, order food in and finish reading my book. But not happening. Sigh!

2

So for now I will go paint my nails a happy orange and eat some cake.

Fantasy drama

1
Without topcoat

When I said I was working on the gradients, I was not kidding. I am having so much fun dab dabbing! 😀
I wasn’t sure how these shades will pair with each other, but I think the delicate green and the striking teal work beautifully together.

With topcoat

1

These are two of the Limited Edition nail paints from Lakme’s Royal Opulence by Sabyasachi. I googled that! 😛 They are both gorgeous colors. Two coats here with topcoat. Dry fast. The shade Green Drama must be a relaunch because I saw the exact color in Lakme’s color crush range which is 100 bucks cheaper than these (?). And as beautiful as the green is, the teal is the stunner of this collection.

The happy Rose buds

1
When I sat down to do my nails today, I had no idea what I wanted to do. So I picked up Jo. Then picked up two acrylic colors, one of which I was sure was eggplant. It was blue. But I am very happy with the end result. Even the messy Rose buds look right, to me anyway. 😀

Vivid & Lively

Rimmel Lively Lilcac, Barry M Vivid Purple

Vivid Purple is a beautiful beautiful polish. And like all polishes it should not be applied under a fan. Because that turns a perfectly good polish into a goopy mess. Sigh! It was still pretty.

Pastels & Dots

Lotus Deep Sea, Orly Lemonade, Lotus Pink Doll, Orly Gumdrop, Rimmel Lively Lilac

This is another one that has been sitting in the drafts folder forever. As soon as I was done dotting I knew something was off. When I uploaded the pics I realised the dots were little too big. Smaller dots would have looked more balanced/appropriate with my nubs.

So today I made a redo folder, where I put pictures of the mani I want to do again. I am afraid that includes almost all the ones I have done. 😛
