13 Days of January // Day 8: Artwork!


Hello dear readers! Ready for another "13 Days of January" nail art? =)


The prompt for today is Artwork. With the help of our friend Google Images, I was seeking for some artworks to "copy". I wanted something abstract, with not too many details. After many searches and many keywords, I found this pretty artwork by the Canadian artist Angela Vandenbogaard.

Photo credit: Angela Vandenbogaard.

I googled her to find more of her works. You can find the results HERE. I love her trees, they are sooo cute!!! ♥ Please, check out her Etsy shopwebsite and her blog


So inspired by all these cute trees painted by Angela Vandenbogaard, I came up with this nail art. I first applied 2 coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, then I drew some branches with OPI Get In The Expresso Lane. I knew I couldn't draw the whole trees on my short nails, so I focused on the more interesting part. ^^


Next step: the "leaves"! I grabbed my dotting tools and made dots in various sizes, using different shades of the same color.

Index: China Glaze Something Sweet, China Glaze That's Shore Bright, Illamasqua Obsess and China Glaze Traffic Jam.

Middle finger: Elevation Polish Mount Mckinley (barely visible on the photos), Elevation Polish Tavan Bogd, Kiko 332 Dark Violet and Elevation Polish Antelao.

Ring finger: Elevation Polish Alphubel, Kiko 339 Cornflower, Elevation Polish El Cap II and Elevation Polish Pic de Sotllo.

Pinky: Elevation Polish I Got the Axe, Elevation Polish Cuernos del Paine, Kiko 297 Acid Green and Elevation Polish Alpine Heights (Carlit).


Here is a macro shot to help you find the dots made with Mount Mckinley, even if they're still hiding, lol! Weird cause I can see them very well IRL... 


Hope you like this nail art and thank you so much for reading! 
The next 13 Days of January blog post will be on Wednesday.

Nailstorming: Mardi Gras ♫ ♪

Hello ladies and gents! Today, all the "Nailstormeuses" are celebrating Mardi Gras ♥

Essence Fame Fatal (Colour & Go 114)

Oh red nail polish... I don't really like you on my nails, lol! If you know me a little, you know that red isn't favorite nail polish color... It's just too "femme fatale" for me!
So when I was looking for a red nail polish to use for nail art, cause everyone need at least one red polish, I came across this red by Essence, with THE perfect name ^^
