piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013

Woah! Yep, I was chosen as one of the lucky ones to participate in the piCture pOlish blog fest! It has been soooo hard keeping this a secret, but now I can finally breath! ;):P

This year is the Year Of The Blogger!
Each blogger got given 3 Picture Polish shades, on which we all had to create a piece of nail art - using only the 3 polishes & either black or white (minimal).
This was seriously one tough one, I sat thinking forever what I could do and what would work best with the colours I was given...

Here I got - Mallard a deep emerald green polish with golden green shimmer along with added flakies that shine green / orange. Matched with Metallic Mush, a very pale pinky gold foil metallic, and finally Tango, a peachy coral cream.

I finally came up with 'oriental' style flowers - it seemed the best and prettiest match!

I chose to only do 2 feature nails, I am rather pleased with the outcome!

Tutorial -

1. As we were allowed to use white , I mixed some Tango and white to make the start of the flower, using my brush I dabbed a shape as shown.
2. Using Tango fill in the flower, leaving an outline as such.
3. Using the same white and Tango mix, create a little stem in the centre of your flower.
4. With Metallic Mush create the swirls(stems) and leaves, I chose to not fill in the leaves to much - I just think it added to the effect more.
5. Add in dabs of the white and Tango mix, along with dabs of Tango on top, in various places.

Phew! I hope my little tutorial makes sense ;)
The excitement alone doesn't stop here! With there being over 130 bloggers participating in piCture pOlish blog fest - all creating nail art with 3 shades, at the end of this 3 lucky bloggers get to create 3 new collaboration shades with Picture Polish!

  1. Those flowers are so delicate and beautiful!

  2. Wow these are so stunning! Really delicate :) reminds me of Chinese art

  3. This is really antique and delicate! Great job!

  4. I love this mani - especially that you've combined plain and highly intricate nails together!

  5. This is fantastic as usual, so pretty!

  6. Your flowers are so gorgeously delicate. You did a great job of combining those three shades, too - I think I'd have found it a bit tricky!
