Wonderingly Purple

I’m alive! Sorry for the 1-week posting delay…I only had one nail art design pre-edited before the wedding and I didn’t get a chance to work on any others during the wedding weekend or last week. Sorry!

Back in September I spent WEEKS painting my nails various shades of purple looking for what I wanted to wear to my wedding. I ended up with 10 different test designs…and I ended up picking #9, which is here!

The actual nails I did for my wedding looked a tiny bit different…I left off the little leaves on the swirls and I made the light purple V-shapes deeper (my nails were also a bit longer). Overall, I think they looked quite good! Not subtle (since purple nails really can’t be subtle) but not super in-your-face. One of my friends even took a photo of my nails with the bouquet that I’ll post with the actual nails in the near future!

Putting these together was also a bit weird! These were made in a way that was initially counter-intuitive to me…I started with the dark purple base! Then the light purple (striping tape to delineate) then the stamp (I blocked off the dark purple area with liquid latex). So, easy, but odd! It does work better than my old method though, for some reason.

Colors
~ Dark purple: Zoya – Iris
~ Light purple: L’oreal – Royalty Reinvented
~ White: Wet n’ Wild – French White
~ Stamp: BM – 607

So that’s it, the mock-up of my wedding nails! The rest of this week and most of next week will be more purple nails, the ones that I chose not to go with. The only one I have actually already posted was tested back in JULY because I am nuts…and went into the galaxy post for the 31 Day Challenge.
