Blue Common Mussel

Here's the mani I'm sporting right now and that I absolutely adore!


It probably looks weird without knowing where my inspiration came from..

Soo, this is my inspiration:
Picture taken at the beach - in case the didn't make it the way home..

It's some blue common mussels my oldest brother handed to me when we were at the beach, and said I should do a design inspired by those..

And so I did :) It was fun! I didn't have colors to much though, but I think it's okay I didn't come too close.. I wasn't satisfied with the mani when I finished it either, but I came to love it after a while and even more by the minutes :)





love, love, love :)

I don't have a shot of the polishes I used, because I did a lot of mixing.. But if you wanna know something about a certain polish or mix, just ask!

So, what's your verdict? Does it look like the mussels?
I love to get inspiration like this!

Tak Erik! - Hvad synes du om dem? Hvordan havde du regnet med det ville være?

  3. The look really nice and realistic. I like the nature-like variation from nail to nail.

    I suspect they're much better seen "live"; The mother-of-pearl doesn't really show on the images.

    You "nailed" it pretty well. (Worst joke today? - I sure hope.)

  6. Rachel: Aaw, thanks :)

    Mor, tak :) har ikke ramt dem så godt som jeg gerne ville, men eelsker dem nu alligevel :)

    Erik: Taak :) Ville have lavet mere på dem, men det blev for sent om aftenen.. og så blev jeg bare helt forelsket i dem om morgenen da jeg vågnede og tog billederne..
    Men er glad for du synes de er realistiske og at du kan li variationerne!
    Og nej, det der perlemor (hah, ville aldrig have gættet det blev oversat sådan til engelsk) kan desværre ikke rigtig ses, hverken på muslingerne eller neglene..
    Meget meget god joke ;) hah

    Camilla: Mange tak! Og idéen var min brors! Og jeg er vild med den idé..

    Rina: Thanks! Wow, oil painting, that's a big compliment! :)
