Freehand Bumble Bee Nail Art

Allo polish Pals!

How are we all today?  I wish you all a fabulous weekend!
Today we are off to visit some friends - its been far too long since we caught up with them. This week has been so much busier than normal - but in a totally great way! I've not had much chance to get some freehand nail art done so I hope I can catch up next week!

Do you know something I just love about spring/summer? Fuzzy fat butted bumblebees, I've always thought they are so cute. I love sitting in the garden in England watching them go about their buzzy busy business! I realized I had never done bumblebee's before and I wanted to do something cute!


For this manicure I began with my all time beloved OPI's 'Nail Envy' and once dry applied China Glaze's 'Classic Caramel' (I never know what to use this for..so yay!) I also dabbed some Model's Own's 'Gold Rush' here and there. I then took my acrylic paints and began to paint a honeycomb pattern which I really enjoyed doing! All the hexagons where outlines, filled in and then shaded and outlined, I found this such a relaxing process! I then moved onto my buzzy little bee and used a small amount of Hema's 'Happy Silver' in the center of his wings to add a little shimmer.

I finished it all off with my Pro-FX top coat and also tried it in matte, because I can not live without seeing if something looks better in matte these days.

What do you think of my fuzzy bumble bee? Have you had done any freehand patterns before?
Have an amazing day, Lets catch up on Monday and start the week together!
Love
Ithi
