I started by doing some research on the internet. I then started a mood board on what inspired me, on what got my attention.
Once that was done, i went to take a look at the amazing Creative Play collection from CND. I looked at the colours, the videos. And, from there, I got the inspiration and i started to choose my base colours. They reminded me of pleasure, happiness, of holidays and celebration. They opened the door to endless possibilities... \n
I start by drawing on the nails with a pencil to make sure that everything is well proportioned, even and pleasant to the eyes... N.B: if working outside, watch out for those little creatures that have a tendance to surprise you when you least expect it 😉
Then I use acrylic paint to create my base. Be careful not to put on too much paint... this would change the texture. To obtain the best results, you should always apply thin layers. \n
Now, for the colours... I always start by applying 3 colours: a - the lightest, b - the darkest and c - the one in the middle. Once that is done, I blend in all the other colours that i wish to use for my centerpiece. It gives it a more realistic look. \nNext step is to create my background. This gives the impression that my centerpiece is moved forward. This represents the universe and shows that creativity is infinite.\n
Finally, I add all the colours and the details. I make sure that my colours are very blended so that it does not affect the texture of the artwork.
f I need to correct something, or simply to enhance something else, I look at my artwork from different angles. This allows me to see things that I might have missed by just looking at it from only one point of view.
*** One of my tricks is to put on the top coat between every layer.... This protects what I have already done and allows me to add on top of it without disturbing the base.\n
I create my bubbles by starting off with their contour. Then, with the help of a square one stroke brush, I work on the shading so that it gives it a 3d effect. At this stage, I put in the highlights... it gives depth to my work... makes it look that much more vibrant, realistic, alive... \n\n
. Finally, I applied the creative plays in my bubbles... it gave them the sparkling effect! I did this simply because the colours are absolutely magnificent!
