Abstract design

   I have absolutely no idea how to name this design :)
   I've made a base, then sponged alternate layers of gold and base color. And after that I understood that it's not enough for a good look. After a half an hour of zealous thinking I added some dots and something kind of flowers :) Well this is not a great idea of a design but I think my nails look delicate (at least).

7 Deadly Sins Challenge (Envy): Dandelion

   "Who would you like to be? Let us know recreating another challenger's work"

   Actually I have many favourite nail bloggers who make such a beautiful designs that (I think) I will never be able to make on my own! It's a pity :(
   For this post I choose  this post by Sarah from Chalkboard Nails. When I saw this post I was really impressed! This is absolutely amazing! So when I was choosing the design for today's theme I could only think of this mani :) Well this is what my inspiration turn into:

   I understand that this is not even a half as great as her nails but I still like the result :))
   Hope you like it too! This picture is for the respective mood :))

7 Deadly Sins Challenge (Wrath): Violence

   "Find something that blows your top and express it with your art!"
   I can say that I hate violence! All sorts of violence! I hate when some individuals imagine themselves above other people and think they can keep them down because of their weakness, race, language or other difference. When I see this I get really angry and want to poke their face into something stinking! Yeah! I'm very mad :))
   Well I thought about it and did this mani:

 As you see, these are hearts of suffering people which become darker and then get broken.

7 Deadly Sins Challenge (Wrath): Stamping

   "Get mad trying, again, that technique you know it's going to be a fail..."

   I know I'm not good at stamping so I decided to make a mani using this method.
   And this is what I ended up with. Not that awful as I expected :) but still not perfect.
   Evidently I should practise a bit more but I prefer to paint nails on my own :)

Daisies in the sky

   I like today's mani very much although it wasn't too difficult to do! I've just made the white base then sponged two blue polishes of different shades and panted daises in the darker area with my striper brush. Added some details and it was done! 
   I hope you'll like them too :)

   The theme of the third week of  "7 Deadly Sins Challenge" by One Nail To Rule Them All  is "Remember, More is More... don't hold yourself back!"
   "More is More.." )) and I decided to use all colors of the rainbow to make this design.

Red, orange, yellow, green and blue are inspired by nature. And violet theme on my thumb is galaxy.

Polka dot gradient mani

   Yesterday I went to Moscow to visit my sister. The day before I was busy all day, so I had only 20 minutes before Alina went to sleep to do my nails. And I thought - dots! What can be faster and easier? :) Just  two coats of my favourite nude polish, white and green dots and some glitters on the top. And the long night to dry it all :) 
   I think I did too many dots that I should but I still like this :-p ))
