Freehand Pirate Ship & Hidden Treasure Cove Nail Art

Allo polish Pals!

Happy hump day to you all, I hope the week has been kind to you so far. Anything new with you?

Sadly still no news on when I'll have my passport back.. it doesn't look like I'll be able to go on the nail course in November but I wont dwell over it. Instead I'll aim to find any sort of work and hopefully I can then reconsider my options in the new year. Never give up hope my friends, whatever isn't going right will turn itself around. Life has a funny of working :)

Grab yourself a sexy little tea or coffee and let us begin...Are you ready for a little nail art fun?

Yaaar! All aboard, maties!
We've been sailing the mighty GimmyMcgee ship for the past 30 days, we've endured the roughest sea's the our crew have ever endured. Endless storms and the cruellest waves. We're two shipmates down and running low on supplies. We have one crate of rum left and a sack full of corn kernels left to feed our shipmen. We almost lost our way, sailing out of the storm we were embraced by a blanket of fog. Not only did the fog slumber our common sense's but our minds controlled by the lulling song notes of the most hideous siren the earth has ever seen. Thankfully, at the last minute we realised we were able to snap out of trance and steer our ship back in the right direction.. After a short while we rejoiced, crying with tears when we saw a small island coming to into view..



Gosh, don't you think these pirates will be delighted when they see what's waiting for them in this hidden cove?! Diamonds, pearls, rubies and a chest full of shimmery gold! Not so sure about the skull, maybe they'll find a use for that. 




Crazy thing is... I've been waiting to show you this nail art since April – I actually did this on my last trip home before I actually moved home, I had to keep delaying it fore reviews and so on. Phew. It feels good to finally post it!

For this manicure I began with a coat of my OPI Nail Envy base coat and once dry I added two thin coats of my Barry M 'White' nail polish. I applied one thin coat of my Pro-FX top coat (R.i.p) and allowed to dry. What followed next was a desk full of acrylic paints. Every detail created here was created freehand using my WhatsUpNails Dance 20 nail art brush and paints. I finished the design off with my Pro-FX top coat and finally my Barry M matte top coat.

What do you think of my pirate ship nail art? Would you want to join this epic adventure?!

Have a great day, lovelies! Thank you so much for visiting. I'll catch you again on Saturday for some more nail art fun and a video!


Love,
Ithi
