31DC2013: Day 15 - Delicate Print

Hi there guys!! Delicate print is always a weird one and I've approached it from a weird angle. I thought of pretty delicate things and I thought of a doily (those paper things with shapes cut out) or lace hearts, this design can be interpreted as either.

When I first finished I wasn't very impressed, it's busy cause I abused glitter (it happens all the time here) and colour in general, but give it a day and I quite like it. On the "like" ratio it's between "quite" and "really" like.
You don't even know the difference the rainbow glitter in a white base and the silver glitter in the black base made. Personally I think they made ALL the difference, it made the design from "meh" to "pretty", I don't even know how but thank goodness for that. The shapes don't look particularly like hearts but that doesn't bother me.

I also get a childish feel from this look considering all the different colours of glitter used. My glitters played nice today, like I see these in a different light now.
Well the pastel glitter on my thumb in a slightly worse light as I forgot I can't use that glitter unless my nails are really long, the coverage wasn't good and it doesn't look it's best over purple. But the other glitters were great.
I got no bubbles from Minnie Style and it looked nice (but it tinted the base a light mint green which was weird), I like Excuse Moi! over a hot pink (as I don't like the base of Excuse Moi! by itself) and Barry M Amethyst is gorgeous!! I really liked the mix of glitter but I thought you could only go for the glitter packed look. I was being stupid, if you wipe most of it away you can get a light coverage and it's so pretty, I shall definitely be using this more as it's lovely and won't be a nightmare to remove! :)

  1. Reminds me of what my desk looks like after a round of making valentines!

    1. Haha yes, I so get that. That's what I was aiming for... ;)

  2. Hahahahha!! I actually really love these! I thought they were so unique and a fun play with delicate theme! From afar, the doily hearts looks like squiggly mesh (but it's not in a bad way, really good way actually!) and it is really unique!! :D Love how you mix and match the glitters! Ahh, love these so much! :D
