My favorite color... that's an easy one. If you know me any more then one minute, you know my most favorite color is Orange. So it was so clear I will work on some orange manicure today. However, no one thought, not even myself, that I will end up with such a lovely mani! This doesn't happen often at all but today I am really happy with my mani.
So I was googling some images of orange things to get an inspiration for my orange manicure, when I saw this image. I looked at it for a while, went on with my search but after another minute I came back. I can do it alright! So I started with a thick coat of Bourjois - Orange Creation. I then sponged some yellow stains using Rescue Beauty Lounge - Yellow Fever. With my Striper brush and Zoya - Ziv I did the gold stripes and then I covered just part of them with China Glaze Liquid Leather. That was the easy part. Then I sponged some Milani - White On The Spot, starting on the tip of my accent nail and it's both sides all the way to the middle of my nail in a U shape. Then little by little I drew all the details using mostly my loyal Liquid Leather. For the nose I used Model's Own - Pastel Pink and I lined it's top with China Glaze - Dance Baby. The nose shadows are Orange Creation mixed with one drop of Liquid Leather and the highlights around the eyes is Orange Creation mixed with a few drops of Milani - White On The Spot. It took me the good part of two hours but I was really really happy with how it turned out!
The funny thing was, when I looked back at the photo I found on google to see it's source and credit them properly, I found out that they even had a tutorial... So if you ever want to try it yourself - Tiger Nails.
