FingerFood's Theme Buffet - Oriental


Hi all!

Another Sunday, which means another FingerFood's Theme Buffet mani! This time the theme is Oriental. I pondered combining this with the 10K IG challenge by MoYou London, but I couldn't get inspired by the plates I own (few Fairytales, few Mother Nature, one Sailor, one Kitty, one Festive). No stamping today *winks*.


What I used today:
  • NYC - 041 Live hard
  • Barry M - Nail art pen Black



I'm wearing 2 coats of Live hard, a lovely red polish with a subtle gold shimmer (not very visible in my photographs). Next I tried to create an oriental style border on my middle and ring finger (the other two fingers are just too narrow to fit this on) and this knot design. I should have practiced the knot design a bit more beforehand, but it was easier on paper than on my nail. But as you can see I did make progress after a few nails... the pinky came out much better than my index finger *winks*.



I like this red and black, not that pleased with the behaviour of the nail art pen. You can see the black bled a little, and it did before I added top coat. Does anyone have any tips with using these pens?

    1. It's a gorgeous red indeed, shame the shimmer doesn't show that well.

    1. It's easy to get them overflowing with polish, but I'm not that skilled with a nail art brush (yet), so this is easier for me
