Allo polish Pals!
How are you today? Are you excited for Valentines Day?
I've probably mentioned it before.. I'm not exactly anti-valentines day but I don't make a huge deal out of it. Do you have any nice plans though?
Today's nail art is my effort for the Tiny Canvas weekly challenge, our prompt was 'Cupid'.
Well.. I didn't know what to think about that so my version is much more fluffy and has a butt that anyone could be jealous of. Must be all those squats.
With everything that happened in the past month I've been feeling a little underwhelmed with all my recent nail art. I don't think its awful but its just.. lacking. I feel the same with this because I can see so many little mistakes and I wish I had planned his placement better as I think its hard to tell he's holding a bow...
For this one I began with Mezmris Nail Lacquer's base coat, 'Armor Up'.
I then applied two coats of Barry M's 'White' for a nice clean starting canvas and to encourage the acrylic colours to 'pop'.
Next I used my bamboo brush (I may need to say goodbye to him soon.. he's really giving up) to create an acrylic-gradient going from bright blue to light blue and added some blue glitter to the tops of my nails.
I sealed the glitter in with an old and unimportant top coat before moving on to paint the freehand details. I'm absolutely loving my Pure Color brushes in sizes #09 #10 for things such as painting fur.
I finished it all off by applying my Pro-FX top coat and eventually moved onto Barry M's Matte top coat.
What do you think of my bootilicious cupid bear? What do you do when you feel underwhelmed with your manicures?
Have a beautiful day and an even more beautiful Valentine's day, whatever you are doing.
