So my flowery mood continues with the painting of this design. I created the flowers by painting negative space; I used my stamper to create a colourful, shooshed up base and then painted black around where I wanted the flowers.
I’m pretty happy with how they turned out, however I wished the flowers were a little larger as I feel I lost a lot of the colour that should have been in this design.
So I’ve not painted a negative nail space design in quite a while, so when I saw one on instagram from ‘@Attitude_Nails’ I wanted to recreate it but not in the same colour. I mean the original colour was lovely but I wanted to make what I did min and by doing so I think it’s given it a completely different look!
So this is the first appearance of Models Own ‘Thunder and Lightening’. In the bottle it looks a lot darker, I was expecting it to be like a black holo but when I painted it on, as you can see, it was actually pretty transparent and almost brown? I decided I really couldn’t be bothered painting on a base coat and starting again, so I went for a sandwich mani. One coat of ‘Thunder and Lightening’, painted my netting, then another coat of ‘Thunder and Lightening’ to finish it off. It has a kind of lace look about it I think!
