Taupe and Coral Florals

Hi Girls, I have relatively different mani to share today. On its own it may look rustically pretty. However, the spoiler is that it is poor man’s copy of an amazing mani done by Lou from Urban Nail Lacquer.

I so adore her creativity and impeccable execution. I had a hazy memory of this mani and I made it out of that faint memory.

I was intrigued by the dusty gloomy taupe and grey and phunk of the bright coral stamped in gold. I hope you get the feel too.

The taupe polish is from Nails brand which I picked from Malaysia, Nkyaa Watermelon Sorbet and El Corazon Kaleidoscopic Gold. I used MDU Dark Grey to sponge the tips and edges of the nail.

Antique Roses

Hello girls, I have an antique rose mani for you today. Its not a mystery that stamping manis make me a quarter as excited or happy as freehand painted nails. But some like this one manages to appeal with its charm and elegance.

Antique and classy work does sway my heart. There is a sense of stillness and serenity in them. Fun Lacquer Superhero suited aptly to build on the mani, what can beat the richness brown gold holo?

Sharing some swatches of Fun Lacquer Superhero. I wore them on their own and then did this nailart after 2 days. Good staying power, I must stay.

The prime inspiration for this mani was this Victorian looking antique rose image in AP 05- Stripe Revolution from their limited edition set that can be bought here. This one of my favourite BPS plates or any plate in general I guess. I intend to use each image from this, they are fabulous.

I did a stamping decal with El Corazon Kaleidoscope Gold and Sally Hansen Teeny Bikini. Then finished the mani with HK Girl Top Coat.

I hope…

Nailart Inspired by a Wallpaper

Hello girls, I am excited to share a freehand floral mani which is inspired by wallpaper print my friend shared a while ago. I so loved the soft subtle and vintag-y roses on mint that I decided to do a nailart inspired by it.

It always gives me supreme pleasure to be able to paint something I love on my nails. And I am fairly pleased with the mani.

The base is NYX Pastel Mint which is a soft soothing color. I took my new Bornpretty store brushes from the review kit for this mani and I am mighty impressed with them. I love their brushes and I keep on saying this like a broken record. You can buy them here.

This mani was immensely satisfying and it turned out pretty I think.

Water Color Glass Painting Mani

You know how it feels so exhilarating sharing an art work whose process of creation is as joyful as the finished product. It gives an unparalleled high doing something you love in a way that you love; which is freehand nailart in my case.

I thoroughly enjoyed planning the randomness of this abstract painted mani. I have been mightily inspired by TartOfFraises account on IG. But I always struggle to believe that I could do even half as good, so I just screenshot her manis for the sole purpose of admiration. This is the first time, I overcame the hesitation and attempted a remote recreation of her work.

Oddly enough, I did not screenshot the original mani. I recreated this out of memory so I don’t know how distant or near it is to the original. You are better judge.

One of the biggest motivator for this trial was my new brushes from BornPretty brush. Oh, how I love their nailart brushes. You name it and they have it. This one can be bought here. If you are into freehand nail art I would st…
