The guest blogger today is Paulina from fall in ...naiLove. If you haven't seen her blog until now it's a pity! This is one of the blogs I really enjoy reading and I comment each new post. She does great manicures and takes so great pictures of them, that it was extremely difficult for me to chose the four pictures below. Let's see what she has prepared:
Honestly, I'm so stressed... hopefully, you'll like it. I really wanted to make something extraordinary and differnet.
This design was inspired with a book called "A Mexican Affair". You know... the sunset, beach and...love- what a hot, explosive combination it is! I wanted to display this summer atmosphere of the Mexican beach.
I started with a base, then put a coat of deep pink/fuchsia and let it dry. Then, I added a purple-navy blue gradient with the sponge to have a sunset effect. For the sun falling down the horizon I made yellow halfmoons using the tape method and once again painted a light orange shading with a piece of the sponge. In the end, I put some action on my nails - the birds and the palm trees are hand-painted with acrylic paint and a tiny nail brush. The glossy effect was achieved with a sealing top coat.
I wanted to show all I love in this design- I'm a fan of gradients, I love halfmoons and often use the tape technique and acrylic paints.
