It's almost the weekend, yay! This is both relieving and sad- next week is my last week of work. I've really come to enjoy it and I'll be sad to be leaving )': But university awaits!
Here's an edgy manicure that incorporates a lot of different elements: gradient, tribal, and cut-out hearts and suns! All of the polishes I used are by American Apparel- my favourite brand for cremes :) I'm happy with this look- it's the perfect way to end the summer.
You may notice that this photo looks a lot different from my usually ones. I always took pictures by a window with natural light and automatic camera settings. I haven't been very satisfied with this method lately so I decided that it was time for a change. I'm still using natural light but I'm playing with solid backgrounds, manually adjusting the white balance, and zooming out more. I like how this photo looks so hopefully this method will work in the future! I hope you like this new style too :)
I sponged a gradient on all of my nails with a makeup sponge and American Apparel Manila, American Apparel Neon Orange, American Apparel Sunset Blvd, American Apparel Poppy, and American Apparel Dynasty. Then I used black striping polish for the tribal print and the outlines of the shapes and American Apparel Hassid to fill.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!
