Vividly Painted

How is your Wednesday so far? I wonder if I mentioned it before, but I strangely like Wednesdays. I often wondered if its because it marks the middle of the week or is it because it seems like the most productive day to me. Or it feels like the "body" of a story, where things and events are finally taking pace. Hahaha, something like that, I guess. Do you have a favourite day? What is your favourite day?

Vividly Painted

This is inspired by ZIBtextile's Summer Garden - Oversize Maxi Dress. My first impression when I saw this piece was, "Whoa, I'll totally wear that!" hahaha! I love the motives, I love the colours and I know that it will look good on me. Though I'm sad it's not a dress that I can afford, I am glad I can achieve similar result on my nails :)

I kept to the colour scheme of the dress but tweaked the designs a little so it will be easier to execute. Initially, I wanted to maintain a mirrored design like the inspiration. However, I really like the organic flow the dress has and incorporated that into the design as well. :)

I really like how these turned out. Haha! As you can see on my ring finger, the only nail that's kept the mirrored design concept. I was going to change it, but I grew to love it more and more so I kept it. :P Doesn't look too awkward with the rest, I hope! So in the end, I haven't quite attempt mirrored designs. But I will do so in the near future. There are just so many gorgeous inspirations lying around! :)

Well then, this is all I have for you today. I'll be back on Friday ;D

  4. I can totally understand your inspiration!))) And realization is just perfect!! Great color combo and the design! And my favourite day is Friday :))

    This is sooo stunning, my dear! I'm amazed by the details you were able to add, and the flowers are just drawn to perfection! My favorite day of the week is definitely Friday. I live for the weekend, and Friday holds all the promise of what I can do and all the fun I'll have. :)

  11. Thank you so much, Lucy! I'm glad you like the nails. Yeah, I know right! The dress is so gorgeous! It's rather expensive where I'm from, but I'm happy enough to just drool over all their other beautiful designs -- they're so creative!

  12. Oh, they do take awhile to get use to. But not too hard, once you get the hang of the process. Thank you for your compliments :D Means a lot to me. Hahaha! Trueeeee! I love Fridays too, also for the same reasons! :D
