I have a quick post for you this evening (I have to go start dinner for the hubs haha). I bought a set of cheap acrylic paints at Wal-Mart last week in the hopes of advancing my nail art skills because I feel like it's time for me to challenge myself a little bit more. I need to step out of my cutesy comfort zone ;) So, I decided to try a floral design over french tips...
Colors Used: Daisy Nail Lacquer - White Diamond, Orly - Beverly Hills Plum, Acrylic Paint
I started with a basic french tip (white tips, pink base). I then took a thin nail art striper and painted black branches. After the paint set I continued with that same thin striper and painted the green leaves; first with the darker green, then the light.
For the roses, I took out a detail brush and painted dark red blobs. I tried my hand and definition with red orange and pink. I top coated and was done.
I think what I love most about acrylic paint is that it dries incredibly fast! I can wait to continue my education in actual art hahaha :P Oh and thank you all for the lovely comments on my bubble mani! I haven't had a chance to reply but it seriously made my week. Love to you all!!
Until next time!
