Allo polish Pals!
How are you all doing? I hope you had a fantastic week! I think this weekend will be much more quieter and homey than last weekend. What do you have planned?
Last month or so I was invited by the ever so wonderful Dani, (@Stormysway97 On IG - Owner of Facebook's 'Tiny Canvas') to take part in a huuuge Olympic collaboration over on Instagram. The wonderful thing about this collaboration is that I have made so many new friends and met some amazing nail artists that I might not have discovered other wise!!
Dani gave us a massive picture showing all the sports that take part at the Olympics and we were all able to pick which one we would like to represent on our nails. I decided to go for synchronized swimming because I thought I could draw lots of teeny tiny cute ladies! My ladies turned out a little like rag dolls but to be fair... fitting 4 or so entire bodies on one nail isn't the easiest challenge I've faced.
I began with my usual base coat of OPI's 'Nail Envy' and once dry applied two smooth coats of Barry M's 'White'. I applied a thin coat of my Pro-FX top coat and then moved on to my acrylics, starting with different shades of blue to create the water. I decided to have some floating ladies all joining hands, some doing arm movements. I sealed it all in with my Pro-FX top coat and added Wet 'N' Wild's matte top coat because I love seeing freehand matte! It was also mandatory to include the Olympic symbol in our designs so I added it to one of my ladies!
Considering how small they were I am quite happy with this design, I think they came out fairly cute. Sure I can see a few brush strokes gone crazy here and there with their facial features but all in all.. I kinda like it!
If you liked this nail art please be kind enough to give it a big share using any of the buttons below.
Have a beautiful day weekend, My friends! I'll catch you again on Sunday!
