Ahoy there, polish Pals!
How are you today? I hope the weather is beautiful and sunny where you are? It's been quite wet and miserable here. I have another Pinterest inspired manicure today, I had wanted to do a freehand octopus for absolutely ages but I just hadn't felt brave enough. Initially I planned a more realistic version, perhaps even a little creepy but this guy came out super cute instead. Here is the pin I was inspired by – You'll see a lot was changed but I loved the idea. Don't worry sailors, He's perfectly friendly if you toss him a sandwich or two!..
For this manicure I began with two coats of Rimmel's 'Bestival Blue' and created a gradient with Dorothy L's '#207'. Everything else was done with my Oumaxi acrylics and my bamboo brush. I really enjoyed painting this, I love those type of freehand manicures that just feel so relaxing to do!
I think completely failed to add any kind of shading detail with this manicure but I don't think I mind too much this time.. Or at least.. I guess the pink to orange could have been blended better but shh.
What do you think of this big squishy octopus? Have you done any sea/ocean nail art?
Have a fantastic day!
