Hello dearest readers and fellow friends! My week hasn't been good. It started out well, but headed downhill then. Lols. So what happened? Well, apparently my account which I have created in Facebook for this Blog, has been reported as fake. And I was suppose to confirm my identity via codes received in sms for the number which I have register that account with. In my series of weird coincidences, that particular number has been inactive (it was an extra number and we forgot to reload it) and thus was terminated by the service provider and I have no way of getting the number back. There is still a small hope to see if I can get the number back next month. If I do, good for me! If I don't, well that's just too bad. For the time being, I am unable to log into Facebook nor update my page. I do hope for your kind understanding and I am doing all I can to regain access.
Now for the better part, I have finally managed to squeeze some brain juice to complete this Skittlette Nail Art for your viewing pleasure. Haha! It is a look inspired by this picture.
So a little bit about the manicure, the index finger is inspired by the little pebbles (or are they corns?) that was on the ground or table setting. I thought the colours look really interesting together. A nice play of contrast. Moving onto the middle finger, well.. this was what gave me lots of headache. I really wanted to attempted the gorgeous combination of colours - the vivid purple, teal and yellow bowls. However, none of the combination I did previously look right. After much thought, I decided to splat on using the saran/cling wrap technique the three colours. And they finally look belonged in this combination of skittlette mani. The ring finger is inspired by the background of the picture - with a slight twist. I have not included the vines and branches (blame the laziness). Haha! The pinky was suppose to be inspired by the eggplant in the picture. I didn't want to add green inside this and therefore go with an abstract representation of the bowls again. Hahaha!! As for the thumb, its inspired by the grey table/ground.
So two main techniques were used in this creation. The Saran/Cling wrap technique and the good ol' dotting tool. I don't think there is a need to walk you through how they happen as I find them pretty much self explanatory. :P
All in all, I do love this look! It's somewhat new to me. Although I've pretty much taken away the 'drama vibe' in the picture by mattifying them. Still love having them on my nails! Definitely a good distraction from the silly 'facebook adventure' I had to deal with. Lol.
