Pastel 3D bling Japanese distressed nails! (tons of photos)

I finally have something to show you! :D My nails have grown a bit so that I can do more special designs on them <3 I am in LOVE with the manicure I'm currently wearing, I'm just hoping it will last as long as I planned!

In sfarsit am ceva sa-ti arat! :D Unghiile mi-au crescut putin astfel incat pot sa fac design-uri mai speciale pe ele <3 Sunt INDRAGOSTITA de manichiura pe care o port momentan, sper doar sa reziste cat am planuit eu!

Look at all the BLINGGGGGGG, ahhhh, it's too much for me! Lol, I adore them :)) Maybe it's because this is the first manicure in a long time that truly shows my personality <3

Uite cat BLINGGGGGG, ahhhhh, e prea mult pentru mine! Le ador :)) Poate pentru ca este prima manichiura in mult timp care imi exprima cu adevarat personalitatea <3

Ok, worship moment is over and now I'm going to tell you how I did them :D The base is a pastel distressed manicure, which I did using a baby pink and a baby blue polish, over two coats of a milky pink sheer polish. I wanted to emphasize the tips with the pink, sort of like a french manicure. A tutorial on the distressed nails can be found at Chalkboard Nails blog, the creator of this style - TUTORIAL: Distressed Nail Art (Punk/Grungy Effect).

Ok, momentul venerarii s-a terminat si acum o sa-ti spun cum le-am facut :D Baza este o manichiura pastel "distressed", pe care am facut-o folosind doua oje in nuantele roz dechis si bleu, peste doua straturi de oja roz laptos translucid. Am vrut sa accentuez varfurile cu rozul, cam ca o manichiura french. Un tutorial pentru unghiile "distressed" poate fi gasit pe blogul Chalkboard Nails, creatoarea acestui stil - TUTORIAL: Distressed Nail Art (Punk/Grungy Effect).

After doing the base, I wasn't sure what I would want on top but the colours reminded me of Japanese nail art with lots of 3D pieces and crystals and I went for that. I used two charms I got off Ebay, different kinds and sizes crystals, studs, hexagonal glitter and caviar beads. I applied everything using clear acrylic (except the stuff of my pinkies and thumbs, which was applied with gel polish topcoat) and then sealed with gel polish topcoat, just to be sure they will hold. The smaller crystals would hold with regular topcoat too but I wasn't so sure about the charms. I used a small nail art brush to apply topcoat around the charm and between the small pieces on the other nails. Be also careful with caviar beads, because of their spherical shape they tend to come off very easily so they have to be almost buried in topcoat.When applying big pieces with acrylic, try to place them right at the first attempt, because if you will move the acrylic bead, the polish around will crack and the piece might fall off quicker. That's why I think this kind of nail art would be better done on false nails or natural nails with an acrylic or gel overlay.

Dupa ce am facut baza, nu eram sigura ce as vrea pe deasupra dar culorile mi-au amintit de arta pe unghii japoneza cu multe piese 3D si cristale asa ca am mers pe aceasta idee. Am folosit doua bijuterii pe care le am de pe Ebay, diferite feluri si marimi de cristale, tinte, glitter hexagonal si bilute caviar. Am aplicat totul folosind acryl transparent (cu exceptia chestiilor de pe degetele mici si mari, care au fost aplicate cu topcoat seipermanent) si apoi am sigilat cu topcoat semipermanent, ca sa fiu sigura ca vor tine. Cristalele mai mici ar fi tinut si cu topcoat normal dar nu eram prea sigura de bijuterii. Ai grija si cu bilutele caviar, din cauza formei lor sferice tind sa cada foarte usor asa ca trebuie aproape ingropate in topcoat. Cand aplici piese mari cu acryl, incearca sa le plasezi bine din prima incercare, pentru ca daca vei misca biluta de acryl, oja dimprejur va crapa si piesa ar putea cadea mai repede. De aceea cred ca acest gen de arta pe unghii ar fi mai ok facut pe unghii false sau unghii natural protejate cu gel sau acryl.

Here are the decorations I used:

And lastly, a manicure I loved but didn't post because my other hand came out badly because I was in a hurry :( I used white polish, black acrylic paint and silver transfer foil!

Si in cele din urma, o manichiura pe care am iubit-o dar nu am postat-o pentru ca mana cealalta a iesit naspa pentru ca ma grabeam :( Am folosit oja alba, vopsea acrilica neagra si folie de transfer argintie!
