TNCC - Favorite Color - #3

Hi everyone,

while I'm already researching the next theme of The Nail Challenge Collaborative ("Art"), I still have to show the final two manicures for the last theme. So here's the third.

This manicure was inspired by one I saw in a Japanese nail art magazine, I bought in Japan. It didn't work out exactly how I wanted it. I tried my new acrylic paint, but I feel like my hand is not steady anymore and/or my brushes suck. I already ordered a couple of new ones...

Materials used:
- essence Tip Painter in Natural White (I poured two of those into a normal, empty polish bottle)
- purple, red, pink and white acrylic paint
- white half pearls
- golden buillon beads

So, yeah, the only polishes involved here is the essence Tip Painter and the Top Coat. I really like the essence one. I was curious when they released the natural white variation, because I'm looking for my perfect off-white polish - not too beige, not too grey, not too pink. This one is pretty much the shade I have been looking for. I just wish it was a little more opaque. Those are three coats and it's still not entirely opaque.

I need to find buillon beads bigger than the ones I have. I should have bought that set I saw in Japan. I just thought it's so expensive...... Does anyone know if BPS or some other similar online store has "big" buillon beads? It's hard to tell from the pictures on the web.

Thanks for reading!
I hope you have a great day~


  1. WOW - this is so pretty - it's very festive, but not too much like I often find beads and pearls to be - perfect balance I think, well done!

  2. Die drei Akzentnägel gefallen mir ausgesprochen gut, auch von der Farbzusammenstellung her. Nur weißer Nagellack ist nicht so ganz mein Ding, obwohl das Nailart im Gesamtbild durchaus stimmig ist und es Dir auch genau so wie es ist steht.

    Liebe Grüße,
