Hi beauties :)
The parade was today. I decided to go for a simple mani, because I was having a headache and the fumes were getting to me ;)
I was inspired by clowns and dots and old photos I had seen at an exhibition on the history of carnival in my home village.
This design I have seen on various fellow bloggers' nails, and I decided to do it with these odd colours, for a twist and a typical clown costume design:
I used Essence "Little Miss Sunrise" for the yellow, Essence "A Walk in the Park" for the green, and a simple dotting tool.
When I was half-way through this design, I didn't really like it. But when it was finished, it was so "in-your-face", that I really liked. Perfect for Carnival :)
We had a lot of family over, and I did my cousin's nails, her daughter's, and my aunts' :) Will post them this week.
As you can see, I used my new photo editing apps on my phone (that one is supposed to use for instagram [@manisandmakeovers]), it's new to me, so totally addictive! Love it :)
