Beautiful Wednesday, yes? :) Today's nail art is inspired by Crabtree & Evelyn's beautiful packaging. If you've been reading the past few posts, you would have read that I had intentions to attempt nail arts inspired by them. This, however, was not the intended attempt. But Crabtree & Evelyn, Malaysia recently held this "Take a Picture" contest. Where participants have to take a photo of three single products in the most creative way. There will be 10 winners who get to win the 3 products they featured in their photo.
Well, I had a couple of ideas.. but decided that my hand pictures are still the best. Hahaha, I'm just terrible at normal kind of picture taking. Anyway, there wasn't anything special or that unique about the photo I submitted, except that I did a nail art using their packaging as inspiration - hopefully they'd like it. Hahaha!
I really love the outcome on my thumb, feels rather sad it's not always 'center of attention'. So I dedicated this shot specially to showcase it. :P The inspiration for the thumb and ring finger is the same, which is a mixture of inspiration from Crabtree & Evelyn Somerset Meadow Collection Packaging and Crabtree & Evelyn Himalayan Blue packaging. Ahh, and I really love Himalayan Blue's packaging! I'm definitely doing one inspired solely by Himalayan Blue Collection next!
The index, is a straight inspiration of Crabtree & Evelyn's logo. Except, I couldn't execute the leaves as detailed as the leaves of on the logo are. As for middle finger and pinky, I drew inspiration from Crabtree & Evelyn's Evelyn Rose collection (the older packaging). This was the same inspiration I used for the recent nail art I did for my Mom.
This picture (the photo I submitted) was taken a few days earlier which is why you don't see the injury in the above picture. To be honest, I wanted to include Pomegranate so badly, since that's my favourite scent from Crabtree & Evelyn, I'm not so sure about Somerset Meadow, I took a quick sniff at Himalayan Blue's and well, it seems alright? Hahaha! Anyway, let's just hope I'd at least stand a chance to win ;D
Well, I guess that is all for this post! Hmm, the next post may not be as pleasant. Unless I schedule that post for another later time. Would you rather I keep it a 'good' week? 'Cause I could post some swatches instead. I have quite a number of new polishes. Lols! Some are not so new, but yet to be worn. So yeah, still new in my book :) Yeap, let me know if you prefer reading a good week or you don't mind the rather unpleasant post. Hahahaha! :)
