Allo polish Pals!
How are you today? Today I have a manicure which was created twice before I liked it enough to post it. My original version only had three colours in the gradient and was a typical gradient going down the nails vertically. This time, I made my leaves bigger with varying shapes, added another colour and went across the nails with my gradient!
Funny thing, I only did one hand as I was pushed for time. I had to pop to the pharmacy as my eye has swelled up again (gawd, this feels never ending..) the pharmacist would barely assist me because she was staring at my nails, she kept commenting on how beautiful it looked (too kind, but I'm really shy already) and then awkwardly looked at my other hand and said...”Ohh...only one hand is done.” really disappointedly!!
Its not uncommon for me to get one hand done before I do the other way later on, or if its really detailed..sometimes I just don't/I'm already preparing the next idea for my posts :P My family and friends are used to it but trying to explain why to strangers is a bit awkward – no they are not stickers, yes they are real nails, no I didn't pay someone to do them..yes really, tiny paintbrush..! This isn't even an overly detailed one!
|Last years Autumn manicure.|
I feel a bit awkward as I know other people have done leafy manicures but when I think of Autumn.. I feel a little block and I really wanted to do something better than my leaf manicure from last year. I do think its an improvement, I think I've become more confident with acrylics since that post.
If you create freehand nail art do you always do both hands? Do you prefer this manicure or my leaf nail from last year?
Have a great day!
