Alphabet nail art challenge - Letter U

This week was very chaotic, my daughter started school, each day I woke up at 6 o'clock when it was to dark to take pictures of my nails and I arrived home when it got dark again. I definitely need a light box! 

This nail art was made three days ago and just yesterday I was able take the pictures from them. I have to mention that it is an unfinished design, because I wanted to paint fishes on it, but my time was very limited. After painting them on my left hand, the pointer finger nail corner broke down, (sorry about the crippled look), and on my right hand one of my nails broke down very bad, so I am going to file them down because I hate different sized nails. I could continue with my problems, but I wont annoy you with them. 



We are at letter U, and my theme for today is underwater. I used for the base American Apparel - The Valley, a beautiful pale blue shade and with the help of a sponge I made a gradient adding It's up to Blue by Orly, which  is a light metallic turquoise/ blue shade and for the tips, Revlon - Top Speed - Camel, a gold caramel like polish. For an intense shine I added from the Essence Nail Polish - Seasons of Extremes the shiny top coat. I panted with white acrylic two star fishes, but I think they look like flowers :)





I am very sorry that I could not give more attention for this theme, in my imagination everything looked different. This is the result of a hasty work, and I consider it a total fail. 

Let's go to the other girls, I am sure they made something pretty and interesting for this letter.

  7. Ai obtinut un efect special cu aceasta combinatie de culori, are un design vintage manichiura ta, un aer aparte! Probabil tu compari cu ceea ce vedeai cu ochii mintii, ceea ce ai avut ca intentie! Dar nu te necaji, chiar nu ai de ce - e foarte frumos rezultatul!


    An scolar frumos, cu bucurie, cu reusite, cu drag de a merge la scoala ii doresc fiicei tale! :)
    Multi pupici!

  10. I could totally tell that these were star fishes, so don't worry about that part ^.~
    Sounds like you had a stressful week =/ Your nails still look awsome even though you've take the pictures 3 days afterwards. But yeah, should probably shorten them or at least even them ^^ I hate it too when my nails are uneven haha XD
    Gosh, I need a light box too, especially now that autumn/winter is coming it is so hard to take proper pictures sometimes and it sucks to wait for the sun everytime -.-" If you've found something good, please recommend it to me :D

Dar, este foarte rar cand sunt multumita de manichiurile mele :( Asa ca ma bucur enorm cand citesc comentariile pozitive din partea vostra! Iti multumesc din suflet ca intodeauna imi esti alaturi!

    Multumesc de urari, la fel doresc si fiicei tale! Te pup.
