Nail Art: Guest Manicure - Zara's Oriental Garden  

Posted by: Stylishly yours in , , , , , ,

This guest manicure features Zara. I was inspired by this Oriental patterned maxi skirt she was wearing at the time, and here's my interpretation of the pattern. Wished I took a photo of the skirt to show you.

Here is a closer look:

Lacquer Boudoir - Nail Art: Guest Manicure - Zara's Oriental Garden

Lacquer Used:

Base Colour:Revlon040Fushia Fever2 coats
Flower Colour: Nail Art Pen Baby Pink 1 coat
Rose Highlight Colour: Nail Art Pen Electric Purple 1 coat
Flower Centres: China Glaze 80832 Solar Power 1 coat
Leaves Colour: Nail Art Pen Bright Green 1 coat
White Flowers on Thumb:Nail Art Pen
White1 coat
Topcoats:Seche Vite83005Dry Fast Top Coat1 coat

Application for Revlon Fushia Fever is great, 2 coats leave even and good coverage. Perfect Spring/Summer colour! Colour is vibrant but not neon, if you're into pinks, this is a colour for you.

I added little flowers on inner corner of the nail near the cuticles. Ring finger I did a rose and thumb I freehanded a chrysanthemum flower with two little white flowers next to it. I also added a yellow rhinestone in the middle of the chrysanthemum flower.

This is a great manicure to brighten up the cold and dark Winter-like days we've been having over in the UK.

P.S. Also, I'm planning to have a giveaway in a couple weeks, so watch this space!

What do you think? What inspires you? How do you get inspired?

I really like that rose on the ring finger! Great job! And that's so cool to have a manicure inspired from a skirt, I really suck in nail designs...

Thank you! It's actually not so hard with the nail art pens and a steady hand. I'm trying to get Zara to send me a photo of her skirt so you can see the original inspiration.
