Alphabet nail art challenge - Letter I

One of my favorite nail designs is the Ikat pattern. So, the choice for the theme was very easy this time - Ikat nails.

I used two beautiful polishes, Barry M. Emerald Green No.284 a lush, verdant, rich color with tons of metallic shimmer. I know that Emerald Green was the Pantone color of 2013, but I still love it and use it any time I can! It took about two coats but this polish is totally opaque in one coat and the formula is really lovely - great application with hardly any mess.

The second polish I used as an accent for this design is Catrice Yellow Sub-Mandarin which is a yellow-orange polish with a slight shimmer. The white and the black are acrylic colors, which I applied with a thin brush. I finished my work with the Golden Rose gel look top coat.

I enjoyed to wear this mani, somebody asked me if I am a professional nail artist seeing this design on my nails, her words were hunny to my soul! I love how this combination turned out and I am going to try other ones too very soon!

I am very curious if some other participant to this challenge used the same theme, so I am going to check their blogs. Do it too, you won't regret it.
