Freehand Fish & Chips - Food Nail Art

Allo polish Pals!

How are you all doing today? I hope you had an awesome week and have something fun lined up for this weekend?

You may or may not know that in England one of our classic takeaway indulgence's is fish and chips! I have many memories of having fish and chips on sea-side days out. These days I don't eat things like that very often, or take away food generally but every once in a while it is nice to have a treat.

This nail art was inspired by the last time I had fish and chips, it was cold and drizzling when me, my mother, sister and niece went to watch the town's annual carnival - Some of you joined me on my live Instagram! My mum didn't feel like cooking after standing around for so long we decided to have a cheeky chippy dinner!

Of course 'battered' fish wouldn't look that great for nail art so I had to 'cute it up' a little.

Just so you know there wont be any new nail art in my next post.. but it is my 5th blogiversary! So I will have something else fun lined up for you all!






For this nail art I began with my usual base coat (Hey, no breaks in like..over two years! - don't jinx it, Ithi!) of OPI's 'Nail Envy' and once dry I applied two coats of Wet 'N' Wild's 'Putting On Airs'.
I applied a layer of my Pro-FX top coat as a nice base for my acrylics to stick to and got to work!

I painted the fish and chips using acrylic paints and my beloved Dance nail art brush. I finished off by sealing it with another layer of Pro-FX (Boo.. I miss you.) top coat and eventually added my Barry M matte top coat which suited this manicure perfectly, I think.

Have you ever had English fish & chips before? What do you think of my little fishy friends?

Thank you for visiting today, don't forget to come back on Monday for my blogiversary surprise!

Love,
Ithi

  10. I've had fish & chips before but unfortunately it wasn't really my favorite, unlike my husband who emptied both this plate AND mine ;) The fish definitely didn't look as cute as the ones on your nails though!
