...well, sort of. I think?
Hi everyone! No, I'm not sick or anything. This nail colour combination is inspired by a wristlet I've received for Christmas. I love it. At first I thought of incorporating the design on the wristlet onto my nails, but I changed my mind, kept the colours though. ;P And these colours, they inspired or somehow possessed the talent of affecting my mood turning it a little grey. A little soft whisper of sadness lingering somewhere. Haha. :)
So okay, perhaps some of you might question why did I pair geometries with clouds and little raindrops. Well, the idea I had was to attempt subtle hue (pastel hues) manicure and because I love the colours together I figured there's no better way than wearing them in geometric forms. At least, that was the idea before the colours started whispering a subtle yet sweet melancholy tune (did that make sense? lol).
I started off with two thin coats of Essence Nude glam - Toffee to Go on each nail except the index and the middle one. Then, using my stripper brush, painted on the triangles in varying forms with my pastel polishes.
When I was done with the geometries, that was when I 'heard' the whispers and the idea of doing a cloud half moon with raindrops as accents pops up. Here's where I inserted a little 'fun' idea having the clouds in warm colour, contrasting it with blue pastel raindrops over grey background. I thought they were a great match to depict the conflicting feelings I felt while attempting this nail art.
And that is how this nail art happened. Haha! Kinda weird, right? But I love the clouds! Besides, I'm also glad I've finally put my pastel colours to good use. Hopefully there'd be more pastel colours inspired mani to come. I wonder, how do pastels affect you?
