Earthy Tones vs. Aztec

Hello my lovelies!

How are you all today? ♥

My week has started so well, work has been challenging yet rewarding. I'm actually heading to bed in minutes, but I had to come here and post a little something for you. I'm so happy I've almost gotten into the posting rhythm I want to have here in the blog, so let's keep this up, shall we?

Today I wanted share another nail art post with you. I hope you guys like these!

First up is this kinda earthy and neutral design featuring some stamping action, which I should train a heck of a lot more.

The polishes I used were Choo-Choo Choose You and Loco-Motive by China Glaze, dark red stamping polish by Konad and metallic studs from Born Pretty Store.

I enjoyed wearing these unusual colors on my nails, and I must say that the metallic base (Choo-Choo Choose You) is so hard to photograph. It looks blue in the bottle, but goes all sorts of colors on nails. Like red and green (the glare, not the entire polish though). Interesting shade altogether, and very fun to wear.

The other mani is my attempt on painting a freehand Aztec print once again. I'm pretty happy about the result, although I must admit I could use even more practice on the straight lines.

I personally loved the color combo here, the purple and light blue look so nice together, and  think Aztec print suits well on the color scheme.

The polishes I used are Grape Pop, Sweet Hook, Capacity To See Beyond and White On White, all by China Glaze. For gradient base I used sponge, and for the details I had a thin nail art brush and a dotting tool.

So these are my little creations for you today, I'm really hoping you liked them even half as much as I do. (And I'm my hardest critic.) 

Let me know what you think about these designs in the comments below!

I need to go catch some sleep now, because tomorrow is a sports day and I need a well-rested body to get through my workout. If you'd be interested in my (very casual) workout routine, let me know so I can make a post about that. I'll be back very soon, but in the meantime you can find me on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook if you want to see things that don't make it into the blog. 

Have a fabulous week darlings ♥
