Palm Tree INAD (International Nail Art Day)

International Nail Art Day appears to be on August 3rd as far as I can google, but I posted my mani today since I made it out of palm trees and that is the prompt for today’s #clairestelle8challenge on Instagram. There was also a contest, but I had to post it yesterday and it’s not possible to post nail art you haven’t done yet. :p I am so terrible about psyching myself out of freehanding my nail art. It’s easier and yet it’s not to just use stamping plates for everything. I’m trying and I hope we’ll all be seeing a lot more freehand nail art. Not counting the base color it took me about 45 minutes to paint four nails. And that’s all I painted! Look, ma! No thumbs! Hahahaaaa

Ahem. I will not always neglect my thumbs, but they are very awkward to photograph so…

  • Base Polish:
    Sinful Colors’ “Summer S-cool”
  • Everything else is acrylic paint. Also, I found out today I only have one shade of brown paint. Lots of color mixing happened.

Pretty soon here I will actually finish an update post on where I want to take this blog (and my social media presence) next. So much to do. O.O

  1. I like the progress shots, and the palms look really good. Plus cool use of a hammock! Now I just need a fruity drink…
