Hi girlies! I just have something to announce for my blog and I hope you will be patient and bear with me. I started uni and it's only been the first week and the work load is already up there and it will only get busier throughout the semester :( I will probably only be posting every 4 days to a week at a time or whenever I get the chance to do my nails, but I think i'll only have quality time over the weekends (at least more so than weekdays!).
Last night I decided that it was time to try out the vintage jewellery/cabochon design nails. I absolutely loved the antique look framing that surrounds those cabochons, especially the victorian style ones with the black background a side profile of a young woman. I decided to go for something 3D, so did a rose instead! Some random dots were added over the non accent nails to resemble the chain. I really love the look :)
I've always wanted to do this on my nails, so now that I finally have, I probably will have it on for a week or so (till next week to change) haha! Let me know what you think of this look!
BTW, I know this might sound kinda gross or weird or whatever, but the fine (looks finer in real life than the pics) gold detailing on the cabochon frame was actually done with... wait for it... a strand of hair... from my head HAHA! No, seriously, I did. I pulled a strand out and cut it to about 1-2cm and used a tweezer to hold it and then used it like a brush - a single haired brush haha! It was a bit harder to control since my hair strand is a bit stiffer, but totally works fine for me! If you think this was a useful tip, please let me know and I will add it to my 'tips & tricks page'.
Hope to see you all soon in the next post!
