#31DC2013 Day 15: What exactly is ‘delicate’?

15 Sep

Today was a true challenge in more than one way. Firstly, timewise. With a classic ‘the morning after a great party’ feeling, a birthday party and a visit to my wonderful grandmother +travel time, I’m not exactly ahead of schedule for the nail arts at the moment.
But also, what exactly is ‘delicate’? I decided, for me it is something that requires a lot of time and detail. I think I’m not the only one with that definition, as I’ve already seen quite a number of stamped designs pass by for today’s challenge. Now, I don’t like stamping, myself. It’s not exactly a skill of mine, let’s put it that way. So stamping really wasn’t an option. Instead, I’ve put my striping tape to good use on my thumbs. That was a lot harder than I expected! But in the end, I got them all pretty aligned.

Then with a tiny brush I filled in the squares with a different shade of pink and a purple. Removed the tape and dotted each “crossroad” with a light pink. Added a topcoat of matte, et voilà. Delicate, according to Josine.

    Wow! That looks like a lot of tedious work!

      It’s one of those things that once you get the hang of it… I’m still waiting though 😉
