26th day of 31 Day Challenge, today’s nail is inspired by a Pattern!

So let’s simply start with where I took my inspiration…

...One of traditional Japanese pattern called “Ya-gasuri (矢絣)” or “Yabane-gasuri (矢羽絣)”. “Yabane (矢羽)” means the feathers on an arrow; so this pattern design is based on the shape of feather. It’s one of very typical and casual pattern, that I’m sure there’s many people who loves this :)

I’ve used zigzag scissors to cut out the masking tape for French tip; which was kinda most hard part for this mani. It didn’t go as sharp as I’ve wished; I think I must use better scissors or ready-made zigzag French tip guide tape to get much sharp pattern. Also first I’ve tried to paint patterns using taping as well which completely failed :( Well, now I found myself for me freehand painting is way much easier than taping…I really respect all the good tape mani creators *sigh*

えー26日目、インスパイアシリーズ6つ目は「パターン」……ということでもう見れば解りますわな矢絣です。正直もう少し細い矢絣にしたかったのですがジグザグフレンチの自作ガイドテープのジグザグそのものが何せ大ぶりになってしまいましてな(´・ω・`)交互にするパターンにすれば良かったなあと気づいたのはついさっき写真を編集している時です<遅え

まあ次は交互矢絣にしますかねというのと、ジグザグガイドを自作せずに既製品を使うのと(ピンキングばさみってかなり使いにくいですな(;^ω^)テープ全然上手く切れてくれなかったよ…)、後はパターンは全部フリーハンドで行くべきやね、というのと。海外にはテープをとても上手に操る方々がたくさんいるのですが、いや本当簡単そうに見えても全くそんな事無いなというのを思い知った次第ですorz
