Lego Brick Nail Art - Freehand

Allo polish Pals!
How are you today? I hope your week is going swimmingly! What have you been up to?
I created some Lego nails a little while ago.. and while I don't like to swear or curse on my blog all I want to do is jump up and down shouting 'S*!# Bricks!' - excuse me, I'll calm down. I had wanted to create some Lego inspired nail art for a while. I really wanted to try and get in some shading practice so it was a fun challenge. These nails may not be perfect but to me it cries toy box and childhood memories!


Shh... Don't tell anyone... When I was younger I used to collect those little furry things that fall from the trees (Here we call them Pussy Willow) during 'play time' (or recess) at school. I would keep them in my pocket until I got home and then I would build them Lego houses. I realize how incredibly uncool that sounds!! I'm often referred to as odd... :)

Lego are actually a great educational toy in so many ways. Check out BrickDave's 'Learn With Lego'.
For this manicure I used only one coloured polish which was Barry M's White for my base. Everything else is done entirely with Oumaxi acrylic paints and my trusty best friend of a bamboo brush. I added a few dots here and there with a tiny dotting tool and finished the whole thing off with Catrice's top coat.

Did you play with Lego when you were younger? Have you had childhood inspired nails?

Have a beautiful day!
Love
Ithi

  8. Your nails look amazing! 3D like the legos are about to pop off your fingers! I loved to play with legos as a kid and I ALSO used to play with and collect pussy willows! (My dad used to make fun of me for doing that but for a different reason haha).
