Freehand Grapevines And Water Colours

Allo polish Pals!

How are you doing today? I hope you are having a lovely day so far. I've got a lovely cup of green tea and I'm about to go blog surfing. I love checking out everyone's blogs, I've been bad at keeping up lately but I really do enjoy it. I'm going to make more of that lovely 'me' time when I can sit and read.

Today I have a very sort of... Mediterranean looking manicure to share with you, it was actually inspired by this beautiful picture I found on Pinterest. If you are wondering how I created my background you can check out my tutorial here. Why does this take me a balcony with beautiful views, a gentle breeze and some good wine?! My nails are taking me on so many adventures lately.


For this manicure I began with two coats of Barry M's white and once day began to create my water colour looking base using two shades of light green acrylic paint. I then used my favorite brushes to create the leaves, vines and grapes. I added a couple light purple studs on the nails that didn't have greats and applied my Pro-Fx top coat. I finished off by adding a coat of Barry M's Matte base coat (I think I may be abusing my ability to mattify, lately..)

I loved the look of the original picture, I don't think mine looks anything like it but it was fun to do!

Have you had a fruity manicure before? What do you think of this manicure?

Have a wonderful day, don't get April-fooled! I'll catch you on Sunday.
Love
Ithi
