i can finally show you how my frankened nail polish looks like in vivo.
i wanted to do rosebud nails, hence the green and rose pink shades that i used. i dont have nail art pens or brushes however so this is not as i wanted it to look.
this took 2 days (or nights if you may) in the making lol..
NIGHT 1. first i coated my nails this frosted mint green polish from the face shop.. it must have taken 4 coatings for me to achieve the right opacity. that also explains why i had to do the design gradually, cuz it takes ages for 4 coatings to properly dry.
NIGHT 2. i had to french tip stickers from the face shop as guides.
and painted on the rose pinks (derived from 40percent sally hansen bamboo shoots, 40 percent the face shop red #2 and 20 percent the face shop gold). thankfully i only had to use 2 coats of this.
FINAL LOOK! tada! i know it's simple compared to gurus (like thiamere's designs and anastacia's too) but i've finally done something not plain & im glad! i'll do more inneresting stuff soon.
