Where Will Your Dreams Take You? ~ Freehand Design

Allo polish Pals!
How are you today? I'm feeling much better today, thankfully! I have to put it down to all your kind comments, it must be good for my health, hehe. Today I actually felt brave enough to bring the acrylic paints out again and if I am honest this is probably my hardest freehand manicure ever. I got the inspiration from this beautiful illustration I found on Pinterest. I decided not to include the houses at the bottom of the picture but I like to imagine that the little boy and girl are actually tucked up in bed and fast asleep, perhaps this is where they have adventures in dream land. I also really like to think of them as my Niece and Nephew who I absolutely adore.

I started with two coats of TipTop Nail's 'Lilac Blue' (I think its called...) and added a gradient using Sally Hansen's 'Resurrection'. Everything else is created with my favourite bamboo brush from The Born Pretty Store and Oumaxi Acrylic paints.

In reflection... I'm pretty happy with this and the idea of it. I wish the sails looked a little neater and to my bare eye I assumed it was – But hey. I'm only human and right now my back is aching after my poor painting set up (in case your curious I paint sitting on the bed with a cardboard box for a table.. so you can imagine!)

What do you think of my dreamy freehand design? Where do your dreams take you? :)

Have a great day!
Love
Ithi

  3. The clouds/waves look beautiful! I actually just wrote a little story about two kids who sail clouds, strange coincidence right? Please rotate the pics next time, now my neck and back are hurting too! ^^
