    So yeah, I'm thinking about entering a nail-art contest online. I'm a guy so I'll be using a tip (no I'm not gonna put on the tip either), I have access to airbrush, and I make my own stencils.


    The theme is PINK. I need inspirations for a design/concept.

    It has to be approachable to public AND pretty (a.k.a. I'm not allowed to do cute pink zombie design)

    Note that I can't plagiarize a design, so please don't post a pic and say "do exactly this"



    I think it's a little silly I'd think of entering a contest with my first ever nail-art, but I think it's just art on nails so not so much different -the canvas is a little small-

    Thanks in advance.

    I haven't slept and it's 7.10am so I'm like a zombie... So zombie? [​IMG]

    First thing that came to my mind was pink and daisy!! o.O I totally neglect my nails (hey, I don't bite them though!)

    So I'm going to talk rubbish.

    Would you prefer a guy-like or girly nails?

    Was thinking you could do a (for girly) pink nail polish on all nails then do white dots (one or two on little finger and increasing as you go toward the index finger where you paint a stencil of a white butterfly and paint a daisy with a diamond in the middle. [​IMG]

    Girly nails mainly, the judges are all girls (I think) so I'd suck up.

    Pink base color and white butterfly and daisy sounds awesome. I was mainly thinking pink to white gradation on all nails so I totally didn't think of pink background and white design.
    Thanks! When I do the nails I'll post a pic =) Gimme up to 2 weeks.

    Oh, and I'm thinking about 5 different designs on 5 nails, it's like having 5 times the chance of getting judges' attention =P
    Including your butterfly idea, I have 2 maybe 3 designs made. I still need suggestions please~

    Similar to that, you could try that with the pink and butterfly?

    Yeah, airbrushing butterfly is no problem once I make a butterfly stencil (or I'll just mask the rest of nails).

    I'm thinking of making like 8 stencils so I can make two-toned flower that sits on one entire nail. (With stems and leaves and such)

    Nail art is deeper than I first thought. My chance of winning seems grim =P

    Edit: The flower is really cool, what tools/technique did you use to do that? Looks so clean.
