Nail Team Challenge - Retro manicure

Retro nails! Iulia's idea really sounded like a challenge at first but after looking at some retro patterns on the web, inspiration "hit" me - dots! :D I know it's not a very original idea, but it was the best I've got and I kinda like the result. ^_^

 The pictures' quality isn't that good because the sun refused to show up this week and even when it did, the colors seemed to fade in natural light. On my middle finger's nail the color is actually a nice shade of purple, not that weird gray...


I wanted to add some bows to my manicure but I didn't have any 3D accessories so I improvised. The "bows" are made out of two heart-shaped nail decorations and a pearl rhinestone. ^_^ 

I used a matte top coat to create a silky effect, silk being one of the fabrics that give me a retro vibe, for some reason. :P


On my left hand I wasn't in the mood to create two more bows so I kept my nails simple & dotty until yesterday, when Laura told me about a contest organized by Tip Top Nails - South Africa. The theme was "Let's get dotty" and one of the rules was to have a shape made using dots/ a dotting tool, on our nails. I made mini hearts using the dotting tool included in the pictures. :D


These pictures were taken in artificial light but the purple still looks gray-ish. :(

The polishes I used are: Astor Fashion Studio 136 & 004 (Deliciously violet) - you can also see them here, Farmasi 12, Flormar light Summer LS08 and Moyra Bubble Gum 628 Jelly Bean.



Are you ready to see what the girls had in mind for this week's challenge? :D
