Woodland Autumn Nails (Freehand Nail Art)Monday, September 23, 2013
Good morning, dear readers! (Super early morning, 12:11 a.m. here! XD)
Today I have some more nail art to show you. :D
As today is officially autumn (YAY!), I figure it is time to start showcasing some interesting and out of the ordinary nail art. What is better for fall than woodland nails? :D
My sister is a makeup artist, and she will be doing a photoshoot of a woodland nymph, so I offered to do the nails for it.
So for the nails we decided on something like bark and twigs, to continue with the theme, and this is what I came up with:
For these I used some regular trimmed false nails, and scraped them up a bit, also pulling out some of the nail to mimic bark peeling.
The base grey I used is China Glaze Recycle, and the other colours are brown, white and black paint.
I used Sephora by O.P.I Matte Top Coat over the finished designs, as I didn't want something super shiny but needed to provide some protection for the acrylic paint. I find that over time the matte top coat has gotten less matte :/
My sister actually started a new blog (Fantastic Illusions) to show some of her work. I absolutely adore her work (not just because she is my sister but because she is fantastic at what she does :D), and I really suggest taking a peek at her website!! She doesn't have much up just yet as she just started it, but her content is awesome, and I know of more awesome projects she will have photos of later :D!
I hope that you had a great weekend!
