Happy Thursday Everyone!
I’m super excited for today’s post because I’ve been working on creating nail videos and today I’m going to share my first one! I love creating roses and it was one of the first things I tried to create when I started out blogging so I thought it apt to be my first video tutorial.
But first, a few photos.
Base: KBShimmer Fax of Life
Roses: Barielle Big Apple Red & Fifth Avenue Boutique, Color Club Wild Cactus & China Glaze White on White
My video tutorial can be found on Instagram, Facebook and Google+ because the file is too large to post to my blog. I’ve tried to make it a smaller file but the results would take away from the video. I’ll add the links here to the video when I post it.
I’m super excited and nervous about posting my firs nail video. I’d like to do more. I hope everyone will have a positive reaction towards it. The whole video was 2 mins but I’ve sped it up so it only is about 27 seconds.
Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope you enjoy my video!
Today I’m starting off with a batty design for Halloween! I’ve been able to spend a bit more time on my nails so I even have next weeks post ready to go!
Gradient Base: KB Shimmer Hashtag You’re It, Kiwi Real & Shady Beaches. I tried using a makeup sponge for the gradient, like I do for most, but the colour was absorbed in the sponge and the silver holo flakes were the only thing on my nails! It looked crazy. I had to redo it and just blob the polish on. The gradient turned out perfect but it did take a bit longer.
Stamping: China Glaze Liquid Leather & MoYou London Festive plate 44.
The stamping went perfectly. I love how the gradient turned out.
Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Stay tuned for some more Halloween nails next week!
Something terrible happened on the weekend.
Not to be overly dramatic or anything but I BROKE 3 NAILS ON MY PICTURE TAKING HAND! THIS IS TERRIBLE! I have 3 awful looking nubs now. My nail painting days are over! *sobs uncontrollably*.
But really, it look terrible, so terrible in fact I used my Cinderella hand for today’s post. Prepare for some awkward photos!
What I Used:
Base: Squeeze the Day from KB Shimmer Summer Collection
Dots: Aspen from Zoya. I used a medium-sized dotting tool to create the dots.
It was incredibly difficult to hold the polish bottle with my Cinderella hand. It felt so awkward. (And I think it looks really awkward.)
Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone was able to get through this post ok. I can barely handle how awkward my hand looks. Thanks again. See everyone on Thursday.
