Painted Nail Art Stickers (Tutorial)

As I promised in my previous post, today I am going to show you how to make stickers for your nails, using acrylic paint and a clear nail polish. :D

Dupa cum v-am promis in postarea anterioara, astazi am a va arat cum sa faceti abtibilduri pentru unghii, folosind vopsea acrilica si un lac de unghii transparent. :D

First of all, this is what you need:
a. a nail art stamp or a normal rubber (not shiny)
b. acrylic paint
c. nail art brushes
d. a clear nail polish (I forgot to take a photo of it -_-" )

In primul rand, aveti nevoie de:
a. o stampila pentru nail art sau o radiera normala (sa nu fie lucioasa)
b. vopsea acrilica
c. pensule pentru nail art
d. un lac de unghii transparent (am uitat sa-l includ in poza -_-" )

 And here are the steps to having original nail art stickers! :D
Si aici sunt pasii pentru a avea abtibilduri originale pentru unghii! :D

1. Draw the contour lines of the image you want onto the stamp/rubber.
1. Desenati conturul imaginii pe care o doriti pe suprafata stampilei/radierei.

2. Fill in the colors (be careful, acrylic paint dries fast on this surface so you have to move quickly and carefully, not to ruin the contour lines)
2. Colorati imaginea (aveti grija, vopseaua acrilica se usuca repede pe aceasta suprafata asa ca trebuie sa va miscati repede si cu grija, sa nu stricati conturul).

3. Wait for the painting to dry out completely (about 1-2 minutes)
3. Asteptati ca pictura sa se usuce complet (aproximativ 1-2 minute).

4. Cover it with a thin layer of clear nail polish. Don't worry about the edges, paint 1-2 millimeters over the edge of the painting. :D
4. Acoperiti-o cu un strat subtire de lac transparent. Nu va ingrijorati cu privire la margini, depasiti-le cu 1-2 milimetrii. :D

5,6,7. Grab a pair of tweezers and, after the nail polish dried, grab one of its corners and gently pull the sticker off the stamp/rubber. 
5,6,7. Dupa ce s-a uscat lacul incolor, prindeti unul dintre colturile abtibildului cu ajutorul unei pensete si dezlipiti-l de stampila/radiera.

8. Apply a top coat on your nail (if you used nail polish on it, like I did, be sure it's dry) and put the sticker on the nail, pressing gently, to remove any air particles from under it. Afterwards, seal it with another layer of top coat and you're done! ^_^
8. Aplicati un strat de top coat pe unghie (daca e vopsita, asteptati ca lacul de unghii sa fie complet uscat) si pueti abtibildul pe unghie, apasand usor, pentru ca toate partiulele de aer sa iasa de sub el. Apoi, sigilati-l cu inca un strat de top coat si sunteti gata! ^_^

T.P.A. Group Challenge: 8. Inspired by Cartoons

Hey everyone! ^_^
This week we had a very fun challenge: cartoons! :D
It was very hard for me to choose one cartoon that I loved and paint it on my nails, since I was an avid consumer of Cartoon Network shows, back in the 90's, and I watched almost all the cartoons that they aired (except for "Courage, the Cowardly Dog" - I hated that one).

Buna tuturor! ^_^
In aceasta saptamana avem o provocare foarte amuzanta: desene animate! :D
A fost foarte greu pentru mine sa aleg un singur desen animat pe care l-am iubit si sa-l pictez pe unghiile mele, deoarece am fost o consumatoare avida a desenelor de pe Cartoon Network, in anii 90', si am vazut cam toate desenele animate pe care le-au difuzat pe-atunci (exceptie facand "Courage, the Cowardly Dog" - l-am urat pe acela).

T.P.A. Group Challenge: 7. Inspired by celebrity nails

For this challenge I chose Zooey Deschanel as my inspiration... To be more precise, I chose her nails. :D
I don't really know what to say about this manicure so this is gonna be a short post. Enjoy the pics! ^_^

Pentru aceasta provocare am ales-o pe Zooey Deschanel ca inspiratie... Mai exact, am ales unghiile ei. :D
Nu prea stiu ce sa zic despre aceasta manichiura asa ca aceasta postare va fi una scurta. Va las cu pozele! ^_^

Red & Black Extravaganzza

Today, I'll show you my newest nail polish! :D
These days, almost everybody in the Polish Addicts Group is obsessed with Golden Rose nail polishes. I must admit that they made me curious about this brand so I couldn't wait to get my claws on at least one of the types of polishes it has to offer. The "lucky" one was "Golden Rose Jolly Jewels 116", a beautiful, somewhat sheer, dark red with black and silver glitter particles. 

Azi va voi arata cel mai nou lac de unghii pe care il detin! :D
Zilele acestea, aproape toate fetele din grupul de Polish Addicts sunt obsedate de lacurile de unghii Golden Rose. Trebuie sa recunosc ca m-au facut curioasa cu privire la ele asa ca abia am asteptat sa pun gherutele macar pe unul din tipurile de lacuri pe care acest brand le are de oferit. "Norocoasa" a fost "Golden Rose Jolly Jewels 116", o nuanta visinie, usor transparenta, ce contine particule negre si argintii de glitter.

T.P.A. Group Challenge: 6. Inspired by tattoos

This challenge is getting more and more... challenging!
I've been thinking all week about this design and in the end I just sketched something and took some pictures. I don't know what happened to my inspiration, but this week wasn't the best from this point of view.

Aceasta provocare ma pune la incercare din ce in ce mai mult!
M-am gandit la aceasta tema toata saptamana pentru ca, in final, sa fac un model rapid si sa-i fac doar cateva poze. Nu stiu ce s-a intamplat cu inspiratia mea, dar saptamana aceasta nu a fost cea mai buna din acest punct de vedere.

Anyway, here are my nails:
Oricum, iata unghiile mele:
