Hello Sweeties!! Happy Friday!
As I told you earlier this week, next week we'll take a few days off to enjoy a family vacation, so this weekend I might be taking a close look to the weather forecast (weather is so changing lately) so I can properly pack. I will probably end up overpacking..right? but I do that regardless of the weather conditions since I have children! What will you be up to this weekend?
Now, I'm quite sad to introduce the VERY LAST appointment of the 40 Great Nail art Ideas Challenge. OH no!! I can't believe I've created 52 nail arts for this challenge and one whole year just went by like that, but yes, that's the case. The prompt this last week is "earth tones". Today's manicure is also a good one for short nails, I hope you like it!
Today's challenge prompt of colour is "earth tones" and my personal technique is "sponging". There is no secret to sponging, really, it only requires to apply your colour with a sponge! As easy as pie. So to go with your pie, I made cappuccino nails!!
For this technique I definitely recommend to use one of the methods for protecting your cuticles and fingers to avoid having to clean up with acetone (see my reviews here and here),
For creating this manicure I started sponging a gradient on all my nails with three "nude" or "neutral" colours ranging from off-white to dark brown. The idea was to get that transition from dark coffee to milk that you can see in a cappuccino when it's poured into a glass. I used the following colours: Zoya Emilia (a chocolate brown), Zoya Chanelle (a toffee brown) and Zoya Jacqueline (a warm off white). Once my gradient was done, I stamped a few coffee cups from the Winstonia W117 stamping plate and the dark brown colour.
That was it! I hope you like this cappuccino manicure, that I find to be quite appropriate for short nails and for fall too!
I hope you have enjoyed following this nail art challenge as much as I have enjoyed doing it. Now the question arouses: what should I do for the following Fridays? I have a few ideas but I'd love your opinion.
