This is my entry to NAILS Next Top Nail Artist 2015/16 second pre-competiton challange. The theme was: "Tagline".

We were asked to create our own 3D word tagline across 10 nail tips. The first challenge was to find the 3 word tagline which describes me and my work. Thank you for CND this project, it gave me the opportunity to create my own tagline finally.

I chose the ELEGANT. ARTISAN. NAILS. tagline, because this is who I am, these words describes me mostly and these words define my nail designs perfectly.
I love the elegant but boheme, the vintage style which enables to mix different techniques. I love to make the extreme elegant, mixing the vibrant colours of acrylic paint on a calm watercolour background, decorated with my custom accessories.
As a professional, I design my nail arts that suits best to my Clients attitude, their style.

You can find here my video about this challenge:

I hope that you will enjoy the tutorial and this quick journey to my world. ;) If you have any questions feel free to ask them.

Some nonfigurative elements were added in gold colour to create a perfect elegant design. I used regular nail polish for this. I closed with finishing gel and after then some Swarovski crystal and very small gold sequins were added to complete the design.

Actually this design gave me the idea and the inspiration. I painted this around one month ago. This is who I am. I love the elegant and vintage style. I love mixing different techniques, combine the hand painted designs with other techniques, for example the quick and stunning stamping technique.
