Take a look:
I have done a few monochromatic nail art designs and I think they're great in terms of not having to think about color combinations. :D But I haven't tried having a light base using the same idea until now. I must say that I will not stop until I've done all pastels on my polish stash. Hmm, that may take quite a while.
Base is OPI I Love Lilac in 2 coats. It's actually one of the OPI nail lacquers that I got when I was starting nail art. Initially, I wanted to do pink but decided for this instead. I still don't think I wear pink well. But don't worry, I still want to try something like this with light pink.
The nail design is freehand using acrylic paints and a detail nail art brush.
The idea for the art is abstract, sort of. Each nail were adorn with flowers and crowded by different sizes of dots. Oh, and if you noticed, there's always one curve line bordering one flower on each nail. It was a spur of the moment thing and I think it somehow became an accent. Do you think so, too?
I also added a dot on each flower to depict its center. I used the same polish base for this.
Here's a closer look on the design:
I can't wait to try more of this subtle nail art on another pastel shade. On top of my mind is green. I bet this would look cool on a matte top coat finish. Unfortunately, I don't have one. Surprised? I used to have one but it turned into stone. I have to find another one. Any recommendations?
I hope you like this slightly attractive nail art. Thumbs up or thumbs down?
