Essence Studio Nails Pro White Hardener
Essence gel-looking plumping top coat
Tačkalicu / Dotting tool
Sunđerčić / Sponge
Najpre sam nalakirala nokte bazom i teget plavim lakom. Na ćošak sunđera sam stavila malo belog laka pa nanosila po sredini nokta i to ponovila dva puta. Potom sam na samu ivicu sunđera stavila svetloplavi lak pa teget i preko opet tamnoplavi i nanosila ih između belog i teget laka. Na parče papira sam stavila malo crvenog laka. Tačkalicom sam crtala veće nepravilne tačke, a onda bih razvukla lak, da dobijem efekat mrlje koja treba da podseća na krv, čestu pojavu u knjigama koje čitam. Dodala sam i po koju tačkicu i na kraju nanela nadlak.
First I painted my nails with base coat and navy blue polish. On the corner of sponge I put some white polish and sponged it on the middle of the nail and I repeated that twice. Then I added a bit of light blue, navy and again light blue polish on the very edge of the sponge and applied it between navy and white polish. I put some red polish onto a piece of paper and used dotting tool to make big irregular dots and then I would drag the polish making the splatter effect which should remind of blood, which often appears in the books I read. I also added a few dots and then applied top coat.
I have to admit that I am very satisfied with the final look of the manicure even though my first idea was something completely different. You can check out which books inspired other girls on the links in the end of the post. Thank you for reading. :)
