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
I like the progress shots, and the palms look really good. Plus cool use of a hammock! Now I just need a fruity drink…
Thanks! It’s good to try new things. I think we all need fruity drinks with how hot it has been.
This is so awesome! Amazing detail and just a really cute summer mani. I love the little hammock!
Thank you! I’ve never used a hammock before, but I hear they are very comfy.
