Allo polish Pals!
How are you all doing today? I hope you are doing well!
I decided that I'd break my 'every other day posting' pattern yesterday because I've been having horrific laptop trouble. While I had enough posts backed up I decided the blog would have a bank holiday off too. I'm officially back on Windows 7 and it seems ok now.. and the internet seems to hold up! Wahoo. So I used the day basically running endless tests and trying to figure out what was wrong. I also changed the blog design a little – its not quite finished so please excuse how mix-match some of it all looks currently! It's a work in progress!
Today's manicure came from nowhere, again. I wanted to take part in another challenge on Tiny Canvas (only the nicest nail community online) and the prompt for this one was 'tree's'. I was so blank until...
Ps. You guys probably think I have some weird obsession with tree's considering my last two posts.. Baha!
|Not feeling the glossy version, how about you?|
I decided to really play with the basics and textures of tree's as well as painting them. I thought painting a wooden texture would be a nice little touch. This is almost like looking over a fence, I think...well wood comes from trees!
For this manicure I began with Mezmris Nail Lacquer base coat and a second it was dry! I applied two smooth coats of Barry M's 'White' and allowed to dry. I then added a thing coat of Pro-FX's top coat, just because I am fussy and like a paint/polish barrier! I then used my fave brushes and acrylic paints to freehand my scenery. I finished it all off with Mezmris Nail Lacquer's top coat and eventually added Wet 'N' Wilds matte top coat.. because that's just what I do!
I am quite happy with this manicure. I wish my reflections were a little better but hey, I do my best! I think it looks better matte for sure, what do you think? Do you like this tree inspired nail art?
