Indian Lacquer Lovers Nail Challenge (#ILLnailChallnege) Week 4- Floral

Hello lovelies......... How are you all??? I am suppa happy as me, my hubby and one more couple  visited Vaishno Devi during navratras and we got the darshan very nicely so I am feeling all blessed. I was very tired and so could not post the pics for this week's ILL nail challenge, which was floral, on time. So, I am posting the pics today

I am giving it a name- Blingy Floral
For the base I have used Coloressence's Barbie Pink, which is pink in color. The shiny diamond shaped glitters are from born pretty store.  I have drawn the flowers using the nail art pen from born pretty store which I had reviewed earlier and the link to that is here.
To paste the glitteres I applied top coat over the design nad placed individual glitter in betwwen the flower petals. On the accent finger I did the same thing i.e. applied top coat over the pink color and picked the individual glitter by a toothpick and placed it over the nail. I sealed the whole design with a top coat. 

Now something about the glitters. The glitters come in tiny pot and are loose and give multiple colors when shine.

They come in various other colors and can be with nail polishes or with acrylics as well.

The quantity that comes is good and will last for long.

Indian Lacquer Lovers Nail Challenge (#ILLnailChallnege) Week 3- Halloween Nail Art

So guys, this is the third week of the Indian Lacquer Challenge (I missed the second week :( ) and the theme for this week was Halloween or nail art using oldest untried polish, so, I decided to do the former one i.e. Halloween theme. For this I searched the internet for some images and then I decided on the few images to be used for my mani. The mani looked like this-

Polishes used are- 
1. Sally Hansen #300 (White On)
2. Elle 18 #35 (Black
3. Colorbar #095 (Tangerine Mojito)
4. Street Wear #37 (Yellow Delight)
5. Faces #12 (Bronze)
6. Acrylic colors in black, yellow, green and orange

To start off, first I applied a base coat and let it dry, then I applied black color on my thumb and on rest fingers I applied white nail polish. After the white polish dried, I took a sponge and mixed the orange color, little bit yellow polish and very small amount of black and brown polish and sponged it over the fingers with white polish on. With yellow and orange acrylic colors I drew eyes, nose amd mouth on the thumb, with yellow acrylic I  drew the sun and with black acrylic the silouetthe of a dried tree and a tomb on the index finger. On the middle finger I drew a some bats flying around a tree on which pumpkins are hanging, on ring finger a creepy old house and on pinkie a cat with big green eyes. 

The above two images are taken with a flash on.

On the above image, the left one is of thumb and the right one is the rest of the fingers.

There are bubbles in the image and thus I need to change my top coat, so please suggest me a good one girls.......... 

Hope you liked my attempt, I love to read your comments, so please do leave one.
