I felt like having red nails, so when I saw this glamorous red dress by Jenny Packham, I knew it was the one I wanted to use as my inspiration for this day of the challenge.
I had fun freehanding in some squiggly designs which look a bit floral but weren’t really supposed to be flowers.
I’m pleased with the result – they seem classy yet fun and quirky at the same time, which is what my nail art mission statement would be if I had one!
I used: The Boltons – Nails Inc, Don’t Pretzel My Buttons – OPI
I’ve got a bit of catching up with my posts to do over the next week or so, as I’ve fallen behind in the challenges due to it being feria week here in Córdoba, having a guest to stay this weekend and a trip to Granada planned for our long weekend next week! I’ll try to get back to more regular posts after that!
I need to learn how to do stamping…i want to have such pretty design on my nails too.
Love how it turned out. And the base color – wow!
These designs weren’t stamped – I freehand painted them! I’m terrible at stamping and need to learn how to do it too! This red is one of my favourites – so glossy and perfectly matched to the dress I got inspiration from.
Ohh thats even better…could you do a step by step tutorial on how to design that one?? Would love to learn 😀
I’ve never done a tutorial before – I’ll have to give it a try in the near future, starting with this design!
sounds great! 😀
Wow! You have matched the dress so well, the different tones of red and the pattern…great job!
Thanks! It was a beautiful dress which really inspired me!
Glad you like them! 😄
