Alice in Wonderland 3D Nail Art

Long time no see! It's been almost two months since I last posted anything here, but I'm back with good news. Another award!! I won 1st place for Nail Design! I'm so excited and I want to share my experience with you!

The beauty school I attended, "Eva Beauty Studies", hosted its 8th Annual Competition on June 3rd with the theme: Fairytales, Cartoons and Comics. Groups of three were formed to work on a model with the theme of their choice, in order to present a total look. Each person specialized in Hair Styling, Nail Design and Makeup. There were 18 groups and 4 awards: 1) Best Hair Styling, 2) Best Nail Design, 3) Best Makeup, 4) Best Total Look and plenty of gifts for the winners.

All groups had amazing ideas and put a lot of effort in their work! Unfortunately I didn't manage to take pictures because it was crazy! You can check "Eva Beauty Studies" facebook page, they'll be uploading pictures during the next days if you are interested.

My theme was Alice in Wonderland. In the first competition I participated (post here) I was mesmerized by all the awesome 3D nail art that I had seen and I decided that I had to try it ! So what better opportunity than this? I got to see the Disney Movie again, to take screenshots. (I admit, I saw it more than once and really enjoyed it!!) And started working!

Making this kind of 3D nail art was a new thing for me, up until now I had only done flowers. It was a very time consuming process because of all the details I wanted to put in the pieces. But all in all it was very creative and worth all the time spent on them!! Enough with my blabbing, let the picture shower begin!!

I had to sculpt really long acrylic nails for all the pieces to fit properly. So here is a picture before everything was attached to the nails.

And after..

And some close-ups...

Last but not least a picture of my beautiful team! And a special thank you to our model for being so patient!! (Just in case you were wondering, I'm the one on the right.)
