How's your week going? And how was your weekend? I spent almost all of Sunday reading. It felt luxurious and went by so quickly. Just snuggling with the cat <3 I fantasize about those kinds of days.
The lovely and talented D from Dagadelic convinced me to join her in a Seven Deadly Sins Challenge hosted by One Nail to Rule Them All & Nail Wish. Bless her ambitious soul. This is the first nail challenge I've ever participated in. I'm glad it's only 7 themes, I think I can handle that without getting frustrated or bored. Here's the poster with each weeks themes.
To start things off we have LUST.
So I'm going to be bad and make the manicure I've always dreamed of.
Before I started doing nail art. Before all the tape manicures, stamping and gradients, there was something my heart desired.
But it just seemed so daunting and intimidating. How could I ever do it?
Time has gone by. I've mastered many a technique. But still never even attempted my one true love.
Here's what I've wanted so badly - Galaxy Nails!
I wasn't too keen on it initially, but it turned out better than I expected.
I felt gimped using tiny pieces of sponge and tweezers. But eventually I got the feel for it.
And it didn't take as long as I thought it would. All in all I'm very pleased.
I'm really glad I faced my fears and finally made it a reality. No longer is it a great unknown!
I need some more practise, but I like that. I can't wait to play around with more colours.
There's a whole universe of possibilities ;)
What do you think? Yay or Nay?
Have you/ would you try a galaxy?
For my base I have one coat of Zoya - Raven and one of Aphrodite Lacquer - Galaxy (seemed fitting)
Then I sponged on Zoya - Purity (also dotted stars) & Richelle
Quo by Orly - Red Hot & Essie - Aruba Blue
Now I have to see what all the other ladies have been up to.
You can check them out too, links below.
I really like the 7 deadly sins idea. It reminds me of Bedazzled. I love that movie.
The original British version from 1967, not the Elizabeth Hurley one :P
If you haven't seen it, check it out. Raquel Welsh plays the part of Lust. Hubba hubba!
Have a great night and an awesome manicure!
