Today starts the Valentine's Day Challenge that Kaki and me created! I'm so excited to see what all the girls come up with :D
My plan was to create both make-up and nail art for every challenge, but I realized today this will be pretty hard! I sometimes don't have that many ideas :D
So here is my romantic lace inspired mani:
I used Catrice Must Have STEELetto, a gorgeous light purple metallic, as a base, a lace-like image from an Essence Stamping plate and Konad Black Nail Polish.
I didn't stamp the image on the nail, but instead I created nail decals and just put them on the nail where I wanted them. It's much more easier that way! If you wanna see a tutorial on this technique just let me know ;)
To make the line more smooth I added some dots with the same Konad polish and finished it with a layer of TC.
I wanted to do some lace pattern around the eyes as well, but I didn't manage to do it... I don't have such a thin brush to create such a look. So instead I used the same metallic purple eye shadow to match it with the nails:
Products I used:
- P2 Perfect Eyes Base
- P2 Intensive Kohl Eyeliner 020 Cool Alaska
- BH Galaxy Chic (Color: Cosmic)
- Sleek Ultra Mattes V2 (Colors: Villan + Pillow Talk)
- Catrice Absolute Matt Palette
- P2 Glow Up Highlighter - High Beam
- Maybelline Gel Eyeliner 01 Black
- Astor Seduction Codes Mascara
- Catrice Single Lashes (on outer corner)
The eye shadow is much more similar to the nail polish in real life and much more shimmery too.
I hope you like it and don't forget to check out the other ladies as well!
Thanks for reading! <3
