I have a quick post for you guys today since it’s late and I need a little sleep before class. It’s scary how many times, I’ve started off a post with that exact sentence…anyone got any time management tips?…haha…..sigh….
Anyways, onto the nails!
I love how these turned out!
Here’s what I used:
Today’s nails were inspired by the cover of the book, Marshlands by Matthew Olshan, designed by Oliver Munday. When I started pinning ideas for this month’s The Nail Challenge Collaborative theme, I knew that I had to paint this cover on my nails. I don’t know why but it just looked like it would make some great nail art and I definitely think it did!
These nails started with two coats of Love.Angel.Music.Baby. I used Black Out and my fan brush to lightly dab on some spots. When that had dried, I painted on different blocks of My Vampire Is Buff and used my fan brush again to dab on some black dots. After that, I painted on the blue sections with Blue Slate. The water lines and little boat were done with acrylic paint and my detail brush. Everything was sealed in with a layer of HK Girl.
This is definitely not your typical nail art design but I think that’s why I like it so much! Different is always a good thing in my books (:
Thanks for reading guys!
