Hello, lovelies! How are you today?
I don't wish you happy Friday as I usually do because today is Good Friday and for my religion is a day we reflect on the suffering, a day for grieving before the renewal and the rebirth that the idea of resurrection brings within. Today is a holiday in my country, and for me, it is a day for introspection. We don't do anything special, we eat frugally and we stay at home. If I'm not too tired, I watch the Via Crucis on live streaming once the children go to bed. That's about it. Is today a holiday in your country too? What do you do on days like today?
I have already prepared a manicure for today's Nail Art Challenge, which is "Pond Mani". What? If you'd like to find out what Pond manicure means, please, keep reading!
To create my manicure I used this two techniques: stamping and layering. I started painting my nails with a jelly purple (China Glaze Creative Fantasie), except for my ring fingernail and my thumb, where I used a jelly magenta pink (OPI Houston We have a purple) as an accent. Once my base was dry (jelly polishes can dry pretty fast) I stamped some images of flowy leaves and flowers from the plates Born Pretty Store BPL-026 and BP-L008, using white stamping polish MoYou London White Knight.
The pond mani is achieved by layering one layer of translucent polish and one layer of stamping, and so on so forth. I did three layers and was happy with the result.
That was it! I hope you like my new manicure. Please, go pay a visit to my challenge mates to see more "Pond manicures"!!
