Good morning everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far! The preparations for Thanksgiving dinner have begun! Mmmmmm! Can't wait for dinnertime :D
Tip Top Nails South Africa has a "Challenge", I guess you could call it, every week. Joan changes it up and has a different theme every week. This week's theme is "Inspired by Breast Cancer Awareness". This week, we had the option to either paint our nails a solid pink if you aren't comfortable with nail art, or you could paint the pink ribbon in your design.
I decided to do the ribbon and some water marbling (be prepared, water marbling is going to be a common thing around here!). This is what I came up with.
I absolutely LOVE the way this came out! It looks so girly and makes me SO happy to look at it :D
The colours I used are:
- L'Oréal I Will! white base colour on all nails. I need a new white, does anyone have one they recommend? I have seen that Milani White is really good (can't think of the name of it right now) but I don't know where to access it in Canada. I live about an hour from anywhere that has a chain beauty supply store.
- Avon Cotton Candy, Viva Pink and Fuchsia for the marbling. I was inspired for this design by this tutorial.
- Then for the Breast Cancer ribbon, I used a small paintbrush and Cotton Candy, then a toothpick and Viva Pink to create the outline.
I hope everyone likes this design, I'm pretty proud of it :D
Thank you Deborah!Delete
