Nail Art: Royal Swirls

As much as I want to create Christmas theme nail art, I just can't do it yet because I'm in the process of resting my nails from too much nail polish. Yep, my nails have been polish free for more than a week already, and will stay that way until Sunday after I had my manicure from the salon.

Meanwhile, I just want to share to you a nail art that I have done two weeks ago but wasn't able to post yet until today. 


And I'm calling this nail art as "Royal Swirl" because the base nail polished I used is "Royal" from Revlon Top Speed series then painted random swirls on it. 
 

I kind of not getting the right application for this particular nail polish, I don't know but it doesn't look like that it was evenly applied on my nails. Or just maybe of too much camera flash exposure. Anyway I'll try applying it again next time.  



The golden yellow swirls were randomly hand painted using acrylic paint. No specific direction for the swirls, anything goes.
   

Sorry my nails are kinda of messy, I wasn't able to properly clean it up before taking photographs.
I think, this nail art also looks like a ceramic vase with uneven pattern. What do you think?





By the way somebody asked me who took photos of my nail arts. Have you noticed that most of the pictures features my left fingers/hand? That is because I am right handed and most of the pictures here were taken by myself, while others (with two hands visible) were shot by my husband. Sometimes it is very difficult extending my left arm and while my right hand holds the camera and focusing my nails. But for the sake of this blog I was able to do it. lol..
Thanks for dropping by. Hope you'll follow my blog.. :)

  25. your designs are always so lovely. But you're right, this time the base color seems unevenly applied. Without any camera flash though, it would be hardly noticeable. :D
