Freehand Alien Nail Art - Into Space!

Allo polish Pals!

How are you all doing today? I hope the weekend was kind to you?
I feel like I wasn't kind enough to myself, too many late nights and deep thinking, sometimes deep thinking is great but you need to be aware of when its not helpful.

Anyway, today's nail art is one I am hesitant about showing you. I'm not really feeling it, I hope that maybe you guys will like it at least. The feeling of being displeased with my work has lessened than how it was a year ago. Back then I would hate everything I had created, I'd create a manicure three times over and still be unsatisfied with the results and not post any of them – I credit my turn around to you guys because while I was always so hard on myself you showed me nothing but kindness and encouragement. So.. I'll share it because you guys always seem to like what I hate. Ha.

Today's nail art was created for the weekly challenge over on Tiny Canvas, our current running theme is 'Into Space' – I had big hopes for this nail art.



Have you ever considered how hard it must be to do laundry up in space? It looks like Pepper-T is struggling to keep his smalls to himself! I decided to paint him in some comic heart patterned panties. Yeah, sometimes I call men's underwear panties. I just sounds prettier, you guys know I am odd.

For this manicure I began with two coats of Barry M's 'Plum' for my base and once dry I added a thin coat of Technic's 'Amelia's Army' which is purple and magenta glitter filled gelly. I applied one thin coat of my deceased Pro-FX top coat and began to create Pepper-T with my acrylic paints.
I added some of my magnetic Born Pretty nail polish to his eyes, I thought it would look amazingly cool but it didn't really.. ah well.

I'm interested to know what you guys think of this one. As I said, you normally prove to have a kind opinion on my work then I do!

What do you think of Pepper-T? Have you ever had galaxy or space nail art before?

Thank you so much for visiting guys, I hope you have a wonderful and productive start to your week. I'll see you again on Wednesday!


Love

  2. He's cute but I can see why you're not 100% happy. I'm not sure what it is, but something seems a bit off... or maybe I'm just not used to seeing heart-covered panties :D
    I haven't done any space nail art or galaxies myself but I have to start practising as I've agreed to do the 52 week nail art challenge next year and galaxies are one of the challenges... argh!

  3. Okay I have to humbly disagree with you on this one Ithfifi. I REALLY like it. It's unbelievably difficult to paint something so teeeny tiny and still make it look like a work of art. Trust me, I know. I'm on the committee of miniature artists and we see loads of paintings done on a small scale that don't half look as good as yours do. And you did it free hand. You are very talented.

  4. You are a true artist and I love your idea with the heart panties on the alien and the sock gravitating through space. :) I think it's brilliant! Not many people would be able to draw so beautifully on nails.
