Freehand Aztec Nails

Good morning, dear readers!

Today's manicure is an Aztec inspired design.  My sister made this absolutely gorgeous jade green polish called Aztec, and it love it!  So, I had to do an Aztec design on it.  :D

I used black non-toxic paint and Orly Luxe for this design.  I then used China Glaze Fast Forward top coat.
For the photos above I did not have my light box up and running, but I did for the ones below (since I took those photos before leaving the cables at my friends place :s).
Now for Aztec by itself:

Isn't this a beauty?  I LOVE this polish!! :D  It also applied like a dream!

Take care everyone, and I hope that your weekend is awesome! :D

  7. what the heck!!! you are crazy talented, seriously dying over here! i'm in love!

  8. This may sound a little crazy, but if past lives are possible, I definitely feel drawn to the Aztecs and the Mayans. There's something so beautiful and mystical about these ancient cultures! I think you could do an incredible ancient Chinese or Japanese mani!

  9. Wow this is an amazing design! I had never seen an Aztec mani before, it's gorgeous!

  10. I have no words! Absolutely gorgeous :)

  12. @ SeeSarahSwatch: Thank you so much!! :D I really appreciate it! :D No dying allowed though! ^-^ You are so sweet!

    @ Bethany Taylor: I have definitely been planning on a Japanese manicure. I LOVE Japanese culture and the Edo period art. It’s funny that you mentioned past lives; when I was in high school (quite a few years ago) I would love making Japanese art, and my teacher told me that she believed I was Japanese in a past life. ^-^ I thought that was pretty cool! :D Ancient civilisations and cultures are so fascinating!! :D

    @ Nory O.: Thank you so much, I’m really glad you like it! :D

    @ Anutka: :’D Thank you so much!! ^-^

About Me

My Photo

Heyo!  I am the writer behind Art Evolve, a blog about things and stuff, that I update sometimes.  >:D

I have a serious love for books, gaming, and general sci-fi and fantasy things.

I also love music and art, and hope to become a better musician and artist as time goes on.

I just started playing Magic: The Gathering again after a looooong break (11 years!?!), and it is awesome.  I hope to become a better Magic player too, because I'm not that great at it heheheh.

I was introduced to edh last (I think?) month, and it has quickly become a favourite format.

UPDATE: Wow, that was in March of last year!  Time really flies!  Definitely not magnificent at it, but still on the Magic train and much better at it than last year.  XD

OH!  I also do MTG altered art, which I recently started and it is seriously fun and rewarding.  Magic + art practice?  Aw yeah!! :D

What else, what else...  I like video games, and play on both PC and console (PS!!).  I love rpg's and some good shooters, and killing zombies is a plus.

I love chocolate, tea and coffee.  I smoke cigarettes, which is stupid, so don't ever smoke cigarettes because it is stupid.

I also really like food.  Too much so.  Especially crunchy things!  I seriously need to get some bubble tea because it has been way too long.

I love to study but my ADHD makes it a bit difficult (a lot difficult, because remembering things can be kinda rediculous).  I also have obsessive compulsive disorder which sucks.  And anxiety disorders, which suck.

Favourite subjects include: astronomy, nihongo, art, geology, stuff like that.

HAVE AT YOU, KNAVE!  *slaps*
