#ablecs15 Week 14: Animalistic

My idea for this Animalistic theme was quite simple: I have plenty of butterfly water decals, so what better theme to use some of them than this one. 

I wanted to add something else to the manicure than just one base color and the decals, so I decided to do a gradient. First I did two coats with the soft pink Color Club polish called Bermuda Beaches. Then I did the gradient using the pink one and a peachy Color Club called Tiny Umbrella. Both of these polishes are from Color Club winter 2015 collection called Ticket To Paradise, but they aren't really very wintry colors, so they were quite perfect for spring-like or even summery manicure. These are quite sheer and jelly-ish polishes, so I had to sponge them on my nails quite a few times. After the gradient was dry I added those butterfly water decals, some dots with dotting tool and Essie Blanc and Licorice and a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust aswell.

I have to say that it seems that I'm not really too into butterflies on my nails, at least not like these water decals. I didn't really like this mani at all, it just didn't fit me. The water decals looked really silly alone, so I tried to fix it by adding some dots and Fairy Dust, but even those didn't help. Also for some reason I even managed to get some color off from these water decals... I don't know what happened, maybe it was when I applied my top coat over them, but it certainly doens't look too pretty. Oh well, at least I liked the gradient base!

  1. Onpa nätit vaikkei susta tuntuneetkaan omilta! :) Ymmärrän kyllä tuon ajatuksen, jokaiselle vaan muodostuu se oma tyyli. Nuo Color Clubit näyttää tosi kivoilta, pitää ehkä vähän tutustua CC:n uusiin kokoelmiin. Ja China Glazen Fairy Dust on mulle aina ongelma, hankkia vai ei :D

    1. Kiitos! :) Jep, joskus ei vaan joku juttu sovi itselle vaikka se muilla voisikin näyttää kivalta. Hanki ehdottomasti Fairy Dust, tarviit sen! ;D
