TPC July #3

Hey all!!! So, its the third day of the July TPC and I was in a hurry and could not create anything good, I just did a very simple mani using the nail polish which I have selected for this month. The mani which I created is- 

After applying base coat, I applied the Elle 18 blue color on half of the nail and covered the other half with Revlon's royal. On ring finger I applied Gaits' green color and dry marbled it with the two blue colors (hope you can see the effect). After this step I saw the nails and they were looking very empty, so I drew swirls using golden and silver acrylic paint. I used golden color over the light blue color and silver over the dark blue one. Though, I messed up my ring finger but other fingers turned out fine.

Sealed the design with a top coat and I was done
Hope you liked my design. Do lemme know your views on it. 

Have a lovely day

TPC #2 and Born Pretty store Silicone Printing Template Review

Heya!!!! hows you all???? Today is the day number two of the TPC for July and I am excited as this time I did my mani using the born pretty store's silicone template. Will let you know about these aweome templates, but first let me show you the design which I created.

The blue, blue and green polishes used are the same which I have used in the previous mani. the white color I have used is of Lakme . I did an ombre on all the nails with white and light blue polish (Elle 18 #53) after applying a base coat. I then stamped various patterns using born pretty store's nail art stamp silicone printing template #A25 with the dark blue color (Revlon's royal) and green color (Gaits' lonely green). I just dabbed on the nail tips with LA colors holographic glitter and sealed the design with a top coat.

Now about the silicone template. The template comes in five selectable patterns and are made of silicone material. The template which I am reviewing looks like this 
Back of the template
The silicone part having different pattern etched to it
The best part of the template it is that no special polish is required for stamping with it. You just have to apply a nail polish over the desired image on the plate. Now there is a polish over the image but there is also excess polish all around it, so, to remove it lay down a newspaper or napkin or anything which has soaking property (I have used newspaper) on a flat surface and stamp gently on it. After doing this 1 or 2 times, the excess polish all around the pattern will stamp over the newspaper and you will be left with the pattern with polish in it. To apply the pattern on the nails, just stamp the pattern by rolling it over you nails and the image will be transferred on your nails. 
I really loved this template because it is easy to use. 

The pros of the template are-
1. Easy to use.
2. No stamper and scraper is required.
3. No special polish is required.
4. Design comes out neat.

The cons of the template are-
1. The template is small in size.
2. The images are very close to each other.
3. Not too many designs as there are only 5 templates available.

The templates are great and very easy to use. Only if there are more designs, then it would have been more cool.

Hope you like the review and if you have any queries and like me to post the images of the way the pattern on a template is applied, do let me know.

TPC July #1

Hey girls!!!! How you all have been??? I am here with the Crumpet Nail Tarts Tri polish challenge for the month of July. The colors for this month are blue, blue and green. The colors which I have chosen are-
Blue #1- Elle 18 nail pops '#53'
Blue #2- Revlon Top speed 'Royal'
Green- Gaits 'Lonely Green'

Below is the nail art which I did-

After applying base coat I applied the Elle 18 polish to depict the sky. I then drew waves with revlon 'royal' color and detailed it with white color polish. On the pinkie finger I drew a part of the beach by applying Zoya 'Lulu' and then sprinkling loose glitter powder over it. With the help of the green color I drew a palm tree and detailed it with black color polish. I also drew two birdies with the black color polish. I also sprinkled loose glitter powder over the waves to give it some shiny appearnce.

Though it did not come out as the way I had it in my mind but still I am happy with outcome. 

Hope you all liked it and do have a look at what other girls have designed.

One stroke flowers

Hey all!!!!!!! How are you all??? So here I am with my experiment with one stroke nail art. I did this mani few months back and thought of sharing with you. Hope you all like it.

After applying base coat I applied Faces Ultramarine blue nail polish and then let it dry. I have not used any special brush to draw the flowers, I have used a simple 1 number flat brush to draw the flowers. I dipped one end of the brush in pink color acrylic paint and other end in the white color acrylic paint and then drew the flowers. I then drew white dots using toothpick dipped in white color acrylic paint and then applied Jessica's hologram top coat and let it dry. Finally I sealed the design with a top coat.  

Hope you all liked the design.

Do let me know about your views.
Have a great weekend
