A while ago I was itching for some very delicate nails and so I decided to combine a lovely, delicate colour with some freehand art. My idea was to combine Sinful Colors Glass Pink with some stamping from an Essence stamping plate to create a lovely soft look which I also thought would be appropriate for a bridal look. Unfortunately, the stamping plate just wouldn’t play. I’m not sure what went wrong as I got my first two nails stamped ok but after that I just couldn’t get it right! No matter what I did I couldn’t get the image to transfer properly until I eventually gave up in frustration. Not for long though! The next day I decided to show that plate who was boss by creating the exact same look freehand! 🙂
This time around, I used Sinful Colors Cinderella as my base. I used acrylic paint and a small brush to paint on the delicate image.
I think this image is really lovely and I was very glad I could recreate it freehand! Since the base was Cinderella, I also realised this would be a perfect look for Cinderella’s dress. As for my original idea of a bridal look, well I would personally be a lot more likely to wear this than the pink version!
To create this look, I first placed the small dots, then placed the small flowers in between them. I did the curved lines last – it’s less daunting when it is broken up into steps like that.
What do you think of this delicate look?
