Tropical sunset

Hey girls!

How's your week so far? Mine has been eventless, just movie marathons and a lot of gym - yeah I'm getting in shape for winter :)) I'm a paradox, summer didn't motivate me maybe getting back to school will. Anyways let's get back to why were here - a new manicure from the Mish Mash Challenge.
Cum v-ați petrecut săptămâna până acum? A mea a fost cam lipsită de evenimente, doar câteva maratoane de filme și multă sală - aha vreau să fiu în formă pentru iarnă :)) sunt un paradox, vara nu m-a motivat prea tare, poate începutul facultății va fi suficient.
Să ne întoarcem la ce suntem de fapt aici și anume o nouă manichiură din Provocarea Alandala.
I've missed last week's theme, unfortunately I couldn't find any inspiration, I've tried a couple of times and nothing good came out so I gave up. On the other hand this week's theme - hot - was a lot easier and what could've been hotter than orange hues? I've always wanted to try out this tropical sunset gradient that has been floating around the internet, so I went straight to bussiness and I'm not saying this is an original design, it is actually the first time I'm recreating someone else's manicure.

Am ratat tema de săptămâna trecută, din nefericire n-am avut nici un pic de inspirație. Am încercat de vreo doua ori dar n-a ieșit nimic bun și atunci am renunțat. Pe de altă parte, tema de săptămâna aceasta - căldură  - a fost mult mai ușoară și ce putea fi mai fierbinte decât nuanțele de portocaliu? De multă vreme voiam să încerc acest apus de soare tropical cu degradé care circulă pe internet așa că, m-am pus pe treabă, nu spun că e un model original, e de fapt prima dată când recreez manichiura altcuiva.
I followed One Nail To Rule Them All's tutorial, but did things a little bit different: I've used acrylic paints for the gradient (I remebered why I don't do gradients more often - they're so messy) and I think I'll be sticking to the nail polishes when doing them - it's a lot easier; nevertheless I like how this gradient turned out. Also my palm trees are fluffier than those on the tutorial, I did the leaves on both sides of the branches but I still think they turned out cute after all. I hope you like this design as much as I do! I know that summer is gone and this is more apropiate for warmer temperatures, it's a nice remainder though.

Am urmărit tutorialul de pe One Nail To Rule Them All, dar am făcut lucrurile puțin diferit: am folosit culori acrilice pentru degradé (mi-am amintit de ce nu fac degradé-uri mai des - te mânjești toată) și cred că voi rămâne la ojă atunci când le voi face - e mult mai ușor; cu toate acestea îmi place cum a ieșit acum. Am făcut palmierii putin mai pufoși decât cei din tutorial, am făcut frunze pe ambele parți ale crengilor dar cred că arată drăguț și așa. Sper că vă place acest model la fel de mult ca și mie! Deși vara a trecut și această manichiură e mai potrivită pentru temperaturi mai calde, cred totuși că e o amintire plăcută.

P.S. I recommend you use a thicker top coat on this or two coats of your regular one. / Vă recomand să folosiți un lac transparent mai vâscos sau două straturi din cel obișnuit


Thanks for reading!
