NOTD: Blue Roses

I feel like I'm stuck these days =) As you probably know from yourself, sometimes creativity is like a tidal wave, you have so much of it that you constantly keep producing; and sometimes you're deserted, nothing works right and you're angry with yourself and your nails =)
Today I painted some roses with acrylic paint on my nails. Base is a franken of mine, made with a few drops of blue dropped in white creme polish. It's a very pale, powdery blue, which can be seen swatched here.
For the roses, I first made blobs with a self-made dotting tool (a pin with a round head, pushed into an eraser =), then I did the details with a darker violet using a fine brush. I made the leaves and the shading with the same brush.



I have had some ideas when I went to bed yesterday, and I will try to make them come to life =)
By the way, I was just informed that I was selected one of the Top Manicure & Pedicure Blogs of 2010 by Cosmetology School =) It's such a great honor, thank you so much! =)
Bu günlerde kendimi yaratıcılık olarak tıkanmış hissediyorum =) Bilirsiniz belki, bazen yaratıcılık dev dalgalar halinde gelir, sürekli üretirsiniz; bazen ise semtinize bile uğramaz, yaptığınız hiçbir şeyi beğenmezsiniz.
Bugün bunu kırmak adına akrilik boyayla tırnaklarıma güller çizmeye karar verdim. Baz olarak kendi yaptığım bir ojeyi kullandım, bir şişe beyaz ojenin içine birkaç damla mavi damlatarak yapmıştım. Çok uçuk bir pudra mavisi, sürülmüş halini burada görebilirsiniz.
Güller için ise önce kendi yaptığım bir alet (silgiye saplanmış bir toplu iğne =) ile düzensiz şekiller yaptım açık renkte, sonra da koyu renk ve ince fırça ile detayları yaptım. Yapraklar ve gölgelendirmeleri ise yine ince fırça ile yapıldı.
Dün gece yatmadan önce aklıma bazı değişik fikirler geldi, umarım en kısa zamanda hayata geçirmeyi başarırım =)
Bu arada yeni öğrendim, Cosmetology School tarafından 2010 Yılının En İyi Manikür & Pedikür Blogları arasında gösterilmişim =) Bu benim için çok gurur verici, çok çok teşekkür ederim =)

  8. I totally understand what you meant about creativity being a tidal wave. There are times my mind becomes blank and I can't think of any nail design. :/

    Your nail art looks amazing. I never attempted to draw roses. This will definitely go to my must-try list! :)

  17. Aww, thank you so much my friends =) A fine brush makes wonderful rose details, I really recommend some fine liner brushes if you're into roses =)
    Çok teşekkür ederim arkadaşlar =)
    @Katrina sometimes I feel depressed just because I don't feel good enough at my favorite hobby! =)
    @Lynn mosa açık renk olduğu için zor sürüyorsundur =) İlk katı ince, ikinci katı daha kalın sür; oje kurutucu kullan =) işe yaradığını göreceksin

  18. Very very pretty, hope I can one day get myself to try making roses too, they are so cute, seems so hard to do :/

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Iris @ pimpmynailz.com it's actually pretty easy =) you just have to keep following the pattern, even mistakes or random lines don't disturb the rose look =)

  20. Sometimes you have an empty mind, without ideas, it is normal, the ideas come back, sooner or later. the creativity never lets you down ;)

    however, and these roses are really fabulous! <3

  22. I like this manicure. Kinda reminds me of porcelain...
    And it seems like a lot of nail art bloggers suffer from some lack of creativity at the moment (me too!). Must be all the christmas stress...
