I had to go to a cocktail party at a conference. Themed. Part of me squeals like a teenager at the thought of hunting down a cute costume, while another part of me shrivels up in distaste at having to actually think of a costume. ‘Nautical or Nice’. A rather broad theme, wouldn’t you say?
Well, luckily I’ve always had a thing for mermaids, so the decision was already sorted. But what do I do about my nails? I’ve already done two mermaid inspired manis… What’s left? O.o
Ever want a natural look for your nails, but something a little more exciting than just plain polish? Well, here’s a manicure for you! It’s cute, simple, and perfect for both short or long nails ^o^
All it takes is a pale pink polish and a Konad stamp plate.
I will admit, this nail art was a bit of a hurry – time really got away from me, leaving me with little time to get it done it. Nevertheless, I’m quite fond of the overall design (if not the execution…).
And so we come to the culmination of Christmas nail art 2012 with entry #4. A more elegant touch, to be sure. I wanted to take a more abstract approach to the whole Christmas theme. Sure, I could just slap a candy cane or a reindeer on my nails and it would be Christmas. But that is just so…everyone.
Hence, a more sophistocated approach.
Alright, I’ll admit: not my finest naming attempt. I was desperate, okay?
Here’s one of my original nail art ideas. On my Pink Ribbon manicure, I’d tried a new way of sponging, and I wondered how it would work as a French manicure, with the French pink as the dominant colour. I don’t know quite what made me choose the chocolate brown. Reminiscing my Freckles nail art, perhaps?
I took stock of my Konad stamps and decided I really only had one stamp appropriate for this look. A little repetitive from Pink Ribbon, but what the heck.
Works for me!
