Allo polish Pals!
How are you all doing today? I hope you are having an awesome Tuesday so far, is there anything cool happening for you today?
I'm doing my best to make the most of my time left at home, I'll be flying back on Sunday. I am so grateful I got to come home and see everyone before Christmas. Before Christmas though.. is my birthday, which is on Friday. I don't make a deal out of my birthday but I think we may be going out for dinner which will be nice!
Today I have a manicure inspired by a pin I saw on Pinterest, which you can see here however it looks nothing like the picture, baha. For one thing.. I misjudged the amount of space I had do I had to jumble up the animals. Also I didn't add tree's in front of my furry friends, but you know I am a sucker for animals and stars.. win win.
For this manicure I began with my remaining Nail Envy base coat by OPI (I'm almost out.. of all base coat.. :'( ) I then applied two thin coats of Barry M's 'White' nail polish and allowed to dry. Next I applied a thin coat of my Pro-FX top coat to create a nice smooth barrier and again allowed time to dry (basically no more than one minute!) I then created an acrylic gradient using my rubbish Edinburgh Realism brush (Can you believe I forgot to pack the brush I make my acrylic gradients with?!) I then used my beloved Pure Color brush to paint the animals and scenery. Finally I finished by sealing everything in with another coat of my Pro-FX. I also tried my matte top coat just for shits 'n' giggles.
I am not all too happy with this manicure.. I feel like its lacking any depth.. its not 'bad' but its just... 'that's nice' in a wishy washy non impacting kind of way.. ah well! I've got more coming up in the next few posts!
What do you think of my snowy animal friends? Do you enjoy seeing winter themed nail art?
Have a beautiful day my loves, I'll catch you again on Thursday. Thank you for visiting!
