Vintage Clown

Hi beauties :)

The parade was today. I decided to go for a simple mani, because I was having a headache and the fumes were getting to me ;)
I was inspired by clowns and dots and old photos I had seen at an exhibition on the history of carnival in my home village. 
This design I have seen on various fellow bloggers' nails, and I decided to do it with these odd colours, for a twist and a typical clown costume design:

I used Essence "Little Miss Sunrise" for the yellow, Essence "A Walk in the Park" for the green, and a simple dotting tool. 
When I was half-way through this design, I didn't really like it. But when it was finished, it was so "in-your-face",  that I really liked. Perfect for Carnival :)

We had a lot of family over, and I did my cousin's nails, her daughter's, and my aunts' :) Will post them this week.

As you can see, I used my new photo editing apps on my phone (that one is supposed to use for instagram [@manisandmakeovers]), it's new to me, so totally addictive! Love it :)



I love it if people leave comments, they make my day! However, please don't post links to web pages, because I will delete these comments!
