Improvizirana holo manikura

Hello, my ladies, (and guys if there's one to be found among you :D)! I'd like to start with an apology for being absent for so long. The thing is, I've been reckless and spent all my available gigabytes of internet traffic in the middle of the month. I've been uploading wedding pictures for developing for my family to DM's application. How silly of me. I checked the news on work or mobile network, but writing posts that way was truly inconvenient. There, fingers crossed for it not to happen again.

I found myself thinking which manicure to show to you because I’ve fallen far behind and I’ve got many cute ones, so I’ve decided for today’s. Simple! Today made, today shown! :) Lately I acquired a lot of stamping plates, because for how much the technique annoyed me, it attracts me. The fact that I’m not good at it hasn’t really diverted me from buying, but now, while I’m unsuccessfully trying to transfer one pattern about 10 times, honestly, I snarl at everything around me. Still, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t find some kind of solution. :D

I wanted to do some holo and gray combo, but since I don’t have that shade, I had to improvise. In the end I’m quite content with the results so I’m sharing my creation with you.

Lijep pozdrav, dame moje, (i pokoji frajer ako se nađe :D)! Na samom početku isprike što me tako dugo nije bilo! Naime, bila sam dovoljno smotana da već sredinom prethodnog mjeseca potrošim sve raspoložive gige interneta stavljajući fotke sa svadbe za izraditi familiji u dm-ov program. Tudum! Da bih provjerila aktualnosti, spojila bih se na poslu ili bih koristila mobitel, ali pisati postove mi je bilo izrazito nezgodno. Evo, ne ponovilo se! :D

Nekako sam razmišljala što bih vam od manikura pokazala jer sam u velikom zaostatku, a imam dosta toga što mi je vrlo simpa pa je odluka pala na današnju. Jednostavno! Danas napravljeno, danas pokazano! :) U posljednje sam si vrijeme nabavila dosta pločica za pečatiranje jer koliko god me ta tehnika nervira, istovremeno me vuče. Činjenica da mi pečatiranje nikako ne ide od ruke, nije me puno odvraćala od kupovine, ali evo sada dok jedan te isti uzorak bezuspješno prenašam po 10ak puta, iskreno, lajem na sve u okolini. Međutim, ne bih ja bila ja da nisam iznašla neko rješenje. :D

Isto tako me jako vuklo napraviti nešto u holo sivoj kombinaciji, ali obzirom da nemam takvu nijansu, morala sam improvizirati. Na kraju sam prilično zadovoljna napravljenim pa evo da podijelim svoju kreaciju s vama.


Na suncu / In the sun

For this manicure I needed:
  • Eveline 8u1 as base 
  • Essence I got a crush on blue, Love letters TE, 2 coats
  • Essence Just can't get enough, Re-mix your style TE, 1 coat
  • Moyou Pro XL Plate Collection 01 
  • Essence Nail art stampy polish 02 black
  • Essence BTGN TC
  • golden, round rivets
Za ovu mi je manikuru bilo potrebno:
  • Eveline 8u1 kao baza 
  • Essence I got a crush on blue, Love letters TE, 2 sloja
  • Essence Just can't get enough, Re-mix your style TE, 1 sloj
  • Moyou Pro XL Plate Collection 01 
  • Essence Nail art stampy polish 02 black
  • Essence BTGN TC
  • zlatne, okrugle zakovice
U hladovini / In the shade
After drying the base and two coats of Essence I got crush on blue, I added a topper layer Just can't get enough. That polish has tiny holo particles, but it's also slightly brownish so it changed the color of gentle, pastel blue base. While the polish was still wet I applied the rivets and let dry a bit more the nails supposed to be stamped. I didn't stamp the nail directly because I'm still in faze where is much more likely for me to mess up, so in order to avoid rampage and annoyance, I prefer to make stickers. :) I polished the foil with some no-name clear polish the day before. Today it was more than dry so I stamped the pattern over it. It was fortunate for me to make that decision because, as you can see, I needed four stickers, and I made about a dozen and even with the ones I picked I’m not truly satisfied. I even practiced the first few transfers to paper. What can I say? I buy this Essence stamping nail polish once a month! That should say everything! :D Anyhow, I took of stickers from foil with tweezers and leaned them against still slightly wet polish. I removed residuals with a brush and some acetone and covered everything with TC. There, I managed! :D
 
Nakon što su se baza i dva sloja Essence I got crush on blue laka za nokte posušila, dodala sam jedan sloj topper Just can't get enough. Taj lak ima sitne holo čestice, ali i lagano je smećkaste boje pa je podosta promijenio boju bazne nježne, pastelno plave boje. U još mokar lak sam postavljala zakovice, a nokte za koje sam predvidjela uzorak pečata sam ostavila da se još malo posuše. Nisam pečatirala direktno na nokat jer sam još uvijek u fazi kada je puno veća vjerojatnost da ću zeznuti stvar pa kako bih izbjegla divljanje i živciranje, radije sam si napravila stickere. :) Dan ranije sam na foliju nalakirala neki no name bezbojni lak. Danas je to naravno bilo i više nego suho pa sam preko tog bezbojnog pečatirala uzorak. Sva sreća da sam donjela takvu odluku jer kao što vidite, trebao mi je sticker za 4 nokta, a ja sam ih napravila 12ak i čak ni ovima odabranima nisam sasvim zadovoljna. Još sam prvih par prenošenja pečatirala na papir vježbe radi. Što da vam kažem? Ovaj Essence stampy lak kupujem jednom mjesečno! To vam sve govori! :D Uglavnom, gotove stickere sam pincetom skinula s folije i prislonila ih na lak koji je još bio malo vlažan. Višak stickera koji je virio preko nokta sam odstranila kistićem i acetonom te na kraju sve prelakirala TC-om. Eto, ja se snašla! :D

Na zatvorenome / Indoors
I don't know, honestly, I've watched tutorials so many times and I go crazy when I see how easily the girls do it and I struggle like a fool. Sometimes I succeed the first time and sometimes I don’t no matter how much I tried. And another thing! I thought these Moyou plates will solve my problem because the girls are really enthusiastic about them, but I honestly don’t see the difference. However, they shouldn’t be compared with Essence’s plates because those’re really bad, but Born Pretty, Konad, and various cheap plates in eBay or Buy in coins are in the same rank to me. Maybe I’ll once be able to see the famous Moyo plates magic. When and if that happens, I’ll be the first to brag, but until then I’ll make stickers (except for some proven molds :D ). What about you? How good are you at stamping? Do you struggle like me or is it like finger snapping for you? C’mon, brag about it! :D
:* until next time!
 
Ne znam, evo iskreno, toliko puta sam gledala tutorijale i poludim kad vidim kako to cure s lakoćom rade, a ja se kao kakav tudum mučim. Nekada ide otprve, a nekada neće pa ga neće. I još jedna stvar! Mislila sam da će ove Moyou pločice riješiti moj problem jer su cure masovno oduševljenje njima, ali iskreno ja ne vidim razliku. Doduše, ne mogu se usporediti s Essenceovim pločicama jer su one stvarno loše, ali Born Pretty, Konad, raznorazne jeftine pločice po ebay-ju ili Buy in coins-u su meni gotovo isti rang. Možda i ja jednom uvidim tu razvikanu čar Moyou pločica. Kada i ako se to dogodi, odmah ću vam se pohvaliti, ali do tada radim stickere do daljnjeg (osim s nekim provjerenim kalupima :D).
Što vi kažete? Kakvi ste u pečatiranju? Mučite li se kao ja ili vam to ide kao pucketanje prstima? Ajde, pohvalite mi se time! :D

:* do sljedećeg posta!

  2. ajde ajde nije to nikakav kunst, svladala si to :D mogu ti savjetovati da ne ostavljaš predugo naljepnice na sušenju jer postanu krte i ne daju se oblikvati po noktu.
