Metallic bars

Hello lovelies!

Today, (read yesterday) is the day for the Mish Mash Challenge and the theme is metallic - a theme that I've always avoided in the past because I simply do not like metalic shades on my nails but to show you that I'm committed to this challenge and because I want to challenge myself I'll be doing all the themes but I'll mold them after my own tastes, like I did with this mani ^^
I'm hoping you aren't getting tired of the one-stroke technique but I can't seem to get enough of it lately, so for the sake of my blog the next two manicures will contain something completely new to me! So stay tunned for some "outrageous" designs :))

Azi, (citiți ieri) este ziua Provocării Mish Mash (care cred eu, că s-ar traduce Provocarea alandala :)), iar tema este metalic, o temă pe care mereu am evitat-o în trecut, pe motiv că, pur și simplu nu-mi plac nuanțele metalice pe unghiile mele, dar ca să vă arăt că m-am angajat cu adevarat la această provocare și pentru că vreau să mă provoc, o să fac toate temele dar am să le mulez după gusturile mele, după cum am făcut și cu această manichiură ^^
Sper totuși, că nu v-ați plictisit de tehnica one-stroke, dar eu una nu mă mai pot sătura de ea în ultima vreme, așa că, pentru binele blogului meu, următoarele două manichiuri vor conține ceva complet nou pentru mine! Așadar, stați prin preajmă pentru niște modele "nebunatice" :))
There's not much to say about this design - I've done the roses with acrylic paints and then, those perfect stripes with the help of a thin tape. I'm a bit disappointed of that metalic stripes that seem rather black than greyish (you have to look really close to see the subtle silver particles in this nail polish which is Golden Rose #189 by the way) so to make this mani more fit for this theme I added the thin silver tape between those stripes (You can see a review of that silver tape here).

Nu sunt multe de spus despre acest model - am făcut trandafirii cu vopsele acrilice și apoi acele dungi perfecte cu ajutorul unei benzi subțiri. Sunt puțin dezamagită că acele dungi metalice par a fi mai degrabă negre decât gri (trebuie să privești de aproape ca să vezi acele subtile particule argintii din oja care este Golden Rose #189 fiindcă tot veni vorba), și pentru a face manichiura mai în ton cu tema am adăugat fășii de bandă argintie (puteți vedea un review la benzi chiar aici).

Thanks for reading 
Kisses!

  6. The one-stroke art is beautifully done. You can see the shimmer peeking out in a couple of photos, but you got the metallic in with the silver - challenge accomplished.
