I decided to try something a little more complex with my nail art this time around. Something with kinda an Indian vibe. I trawled through Google for inspiration, and much to my delight, I found a design that was perfect for what I wanted.
These colours remind me of Indian spices – saffron, tumeric, and so on. Don’t you think? I rarely get a use out of my Inglot orange; I guess orange isn’t really my colour. But it goes so well here with the yellow and red acrylic paint ^_^
(Gosh, I look so pale here!! ^ ^;)
Getting those painted lines consistent was a challenge. I usually just let the striping brush go where it likes. This time I actually had to give it guidance, make it bend to my will. I think I managed some success, wouldn’t you say?
To tell you the truth, it’s the dots that were really the problem. Seriously. I hadn’t used the dotting tool in a while, and my dots just turned out…wrong. Not the way I had wanted them to go.
Yes, I know. That is the fault of the operator, not the tool…
And I’m so glad I got a use out of my random gold glitter polish. It’s hard to weave it into my nail art – it’s just so horribly chunky. But it sits delightfully in between my lines.
I guess there really is a first for everything…
