Allo polish Pals!
How are you all doing? I hope your week is off to a great start!
Today's manicure was created while I was visiting back home in England.
Everyone was either at work or in school/nursery and my inspiration was lacking. UNTIL...!
I wandered into the living room and saw one of the books my mum has there for my Niece/Nephew. I decided it would be so fun to try and paint a page so I could show my 5 year old niece when she got home from school. The book is one of those noisy ones with the audio buttons, I better just state it was written by Stephanie Stansbie and illustrated by Veronica Vasylenko.
|My kitties face is a bit deranged.|
For this manicure I began with my OPI 'Nail Envy' (I hadn't tried Mezmris at this point) and once dry applied two coats of Rimmel's 'White Love' (Also hadn't stocked up on Barry M) I then added a coat of Pro-FX because... polish to paint barrier. I don't know why I do it. I then used my favorite brushes and acrylic paints to freehand the scene from both pages of the book. I sealed it all in with another
My niece was really impressed when she saw them but didn't remember where it had come from (It's been a while since she read this book as its always been there) so when I reminded her and showed her the page I'd copied she was really shocked!
What do you guys think? Have you done nail art inspired by illustration before? It was hard to fit some things in at certain places, like the cat should have been full on the fence but there just wasn't room!

Have a fabulous day, I'll catch you again on Thursday (By the way, did you know Thursday is 'Burger day' – how odd! )
