So I was browsing on soompi when I saw a tutorial (youtube video) for a Bom nail look. From the picture I saw they used gold instead and they drew cheetah prints on it. I was curious because someone commented that the original colour scheme of pink and white was nice, so I decided to watch the MV.
Screenshot done by me.
Yes, I was that bothered to screenshot it and pause it on the spot. If you look at it (though I never watched it full screen because I want to conserve bandwidth), they look more like lines than cheetah prints to me. So I decided to test it out considering I had a zebra print stamp. I have pink nail polish, but I wanted a hassle free finish, so I used a Konad “Peach pearl” polish instead, which is more like a sheer bridal colour.
Zebra prints done with Peach Pearl and Light Beige Konad polishes, white special polish zebra stamp from m57 image plate, with another black special polish stamp overlapped.
Sorry for the crap photo. I’ll see what I can do tomorrow when there’s natural light. I had to photoshop that image to make the pink and white different too In real life though they all look the same colour LOL there’s just a subtle difference, but uhh yeah, “inspired” >_> Not trying to do the same thing lol. I can’t figure for the life of me whether or not they were zebra prints or not and if they used white AND black. I can see a bit of white on the middle fingernail, but it doesn’t even look like a zebra print.
But oh well, I have zebra print nails anyway, something I thought I’d never have – and I must say, it looks pretty cool! I had to redo 4/5 nails on my right hand though, because I couldn’t overlap the black stamp properly, so I screwed that up. My right hand funnily enough is neater than my left hand stamps. Practice does make perfect 🙂
They’re growing on me. I quite like them! Now if only the photo did some more justice to the one hour I spent doing this. Hmmm.
Anyway onto other matters concerning normal daily life (I haven’t really been blogging lately!) – I’ve been working on design. I have to come up with 2 proposals of interest for 2 electives and hope that I get accepted into one of them lol. It’s been hard, and I am braindead/ stuck – so I called it a day and worked on my nails. I’ll finish on time though – because I know where I’m headed. I just need to do some research and put it all together. Hopefully I can print one of them on Thursday (both would be ideal) and then I can come in early and pin them up Friday morning. I want a hassle and stress free Friday so I can have the Saturday off 🙂
WHEE AWESOME NAILS. If only our brains could take screenshots of what we see. Now THAT’D be cool.
Anyway, I’m out 😀 I’ll update the photo tomorrow. Promise 🙂 It might be a bit later in the day, but I’ll be taking the photo in the morning 🙂
Until next time!
