I used the classic technique of the newspaper nail art (a white nail polish base colour and then i used alcool and some piece of newspaper cut into small squares).  I had to make several attempts before I could do that.

Then I added some delicate colour details using nail art tattoos(on the photo below) . And finally I bordered each nail with black nail polish.

Hi everyone! 🙂 This is the second theme for the January monthly challenge by #naillinkup : “Rubber duckies”!! I imagined the yellow of the rubber ducky in contrast with the light blue of the water, with lots and lots of celestial and white bubbles  :-)… and so here goes… I’m happy with how came out.:-) Rubber duckies are so cute!!

Half moon manicure- marsala for #naillinkup

Hi everyone!! 🙂

IMG_0180 (2) okk

This is a manicure for a monthly challenge, #naillinkup, as you can see below; It’s inspired by Marsala, the Pantone color of the year for 2015 (here the Pantone website)!! I didn’t have a color exactly the same as the color Marsala, was an opportunity to learn more about it!! 🙂 The nearest colour I have in my stash is this nail polish by Avon, a dark red- wine color.. I combined it with a light pink..

Ciao a tutte:-)! Questa è una manicure per una sfida mensile,#naillinkup , il cui primo tema è “Marsala”..
Marsala è stato scelto come colore dell’anno 2015 da Pantone (come si può vedere dal sito qui: http://www.pantone.com/pages/index.aspx?pg=21163 ).
E’ un color rosso scuro-color vino, io non lo avevo e ne ho scelto uno che si avvicinasse il più possibile a questo, lo smalto Avon “golden wine” !

For this challenge I chose a half moon lace nail art using marsala and light pink colors :).. I freehand the pink lace with a brush, but unfortunately I don’t have a very thiny brush so it’s no perfect :(..

Ho scelto di fare su indice e medio una “half moon” nail art (caratterizzata dalla lunetta all’attaccatura dell’unghia di colore diverso dal resto dell’unghia), combinando color marsala e rosa chiaro e poi disegnando il motivo del pizzo rosa con un pennellino sottile..Purtroppo non lo avevo abbastanza sottile e non è uscito dettagliato..

For this manicure I was inspired by the pattern of the Lace Half Moon by Sarah from Chalkboard Nails :  http://www.chalkboardnails.com/2013/09/31dc2013-day-18-lace-half-moons.html

She is always a source of inspiration through her creativity and beautiful works :-).

Unfortunately my design is not very precise but it’s really really hard to draw the lace accurately using only a brush and nail polishes, because unlike painting the nail polishes dry too quickly :-/!!
