Freehand Japanese Edo Period Inspired Nails

Good afternoon again, dear readers! :D

I did this manicure today and was too excited to share it with you to wait.  ^-^  If you haven't seen them yet, please check out the adorable cherry nails in my last post that my sister did.  ^-^

So without further ado:

For these I did a base of Essie Sand Tropez.  I then used Konad white nail polish and non-toxic acrylic paint for the art (all freehand).  I used several layers of China Glaze Fast Forward top coat.

I hope that you enjoy these!!! :D

  9. Wonderful representation of the Edo Period. I'm so excited that you did these! The red around the eyes on the middle finger is great, but my favorite is the wave on your thumb!

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*
