Allo polish Pals!
How are you all doing today? Do you have anything nice planned this weekend?
I don't think I'll be up to much, I'm sort of looking to having a quiet one in. Maybe I'll have a swatchy Sunday.
Sometimes I make nail art and while I'm thinking “pretty' nails” - what I'll describe as 'pleasant' art that doesn't really have much substance or meaning behind it. It's literally just 'nice' to look at without provocking any thoughts.
Sometimes though I love to paint nails that actually have more of a hidden depth to them, a background story even. I'd say the emotion behind this nail art is about being lonely or isolated from everything else. I'm not generally a lonely person but I do miss my family at times. It doesn't always get easier the longer I am away from them so I guess that is kind of where this came from...
There's nothing else on that planet. Just a bunny and a tree. That's gotta be pretty lonely. Poor Bunny.. I wonder if there are other bunnies on the other planets.. Besides that, its still pretty 'pleasant' I guess.
For this manicure I used OPI's 'Nail Envy' base coat and once dry I applied two coats of Barry M's 'White' (Surprise!!) I then used a thin coat of my Pro-FX top coat as a nice smooth barrier. Once this was dry I used my fat old brush (it looks like a felt tip pen..) and created the sky by mixing different shades together and creating the acrylic-gradient. For everything else I used my Christrio and Pure Color Brushes.
What does this nail art make you feel? Are there hidden meanings behind your nail art?
Have a fantastic weekend my friends, Thank you so much for stopping by! Don't forget to say hi in the comments below and let me know what you are up to this weekend :)
