Colorful Paisley

Hello my lovelies and happy Sunday! This morning I woke up very stressed about graduation coming up and  the fact that I have tons of work left on my thesis. I thought that talking to you all about nails would relax me so here I am writing this post. I'm not even sure you will like these nails, they were sort of a failed attempt and I liked them more in reality than in pictures. But here's how they came out. 




This paisley image is from a Bundle Monster plate, namely BM-315. I was in love with this image ever since I saw other people using it, so when I got the plate set it was one of the first ones I wanted to use. I googled "paisley" for an idea of the colors I would use and decided on this colorful paisley print. Then I tried to recreate it and failed miserably. I first tried to stamp with the colors on paper and they looked ok, but on the nail some are more vibrant than others. The green and the blue are barely visible in photos. The dots are also too big because the space was pretty small but my dotting tools weren't. 


The polishes I used were mostly from S-he Stylezone: 310 (green), 281 (blue) and 247 (purple). The red is Rimmel Stand to Attention. If I would do this again I would definitely replace the green and the blue with more vibrant colors. The base was OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, which has easily become my favorite nail art canvas of all time. 


I wore these nails for a couple of days even though I wasn't that happy with how they came out. Please tell me in the comments what you think and what you would do to improve them. I will definitely be using this image again because I love it a lot!

  2. I think it looks great too. Noone else watches your nails so close, I'd do one for myself also, if I knew how to :D
