3D Pop Up Instagram Notification Nail Art

Allo polish Pals!

How are you all doing today? I hope you've got something fun lined up for the weekend? I'm currently at work – don't worry, I'm not blogging at work, I'm a good scheduler!

Hey look, your latest Instagram post just went viral! Check out the notifications, its almost like they are jumping right out at you! Blimey, you even got 1 million followers!

How did I shade these? Why does it look like they are actually popping off of my nails? My secrets shall be revealed!




 
How I got my notifications to pop out was by carefully stacking up some small sequins I rarely use. I created a tower for each little notification and eventually added these to the back. They were surprisingly sturdy and I had to actually pull them off once I was done. No one needs a like in the eye, am I right?

They were surprisingly sturdy and I had to actually pull them off once I was done. No one needs a like in the eye, am I right? The notifications themselves were created out of card and painted with acrylic paint. I also added an acrylic-gradient to the thumb using a brush and a mixture of colours to represent the Instagram logo. The borders were created using my WhatsUpNails #20 Dance brush.
I added a layer of Barry M's matte top coat for a perfectly smooth and fitting look.

Before I get screamed at about how unwearable this nail design is please remember its obviously not the sort of nail art you're going to wear while completing everyday tasks (Oh, can you imagine?!) But I think it created a very fun and unique look. I had fun trying this idea out, that's for sure!

What do you guys think of this crazy nail art? Have you had social media inspired nails before?
 
 Have an awesome weekend, thank you so much for stopping by! I'll catch you again on Monday for some more nail art fun!


Love,
Ithi

  2. Way to do instagrams proud. This is so creative. It's hard to believe that what's holding the notifications up is sequences. How long would you say it took you to complete this look in entirety?

  3. Aww thank you so much, Cia! I'd say the whole design took around four hours - staggered but that would include the base coat through to the final matte top coat. I had to allow time for my white polish to dry (two coats) and do the gradient all with a brush & acrylics aswell as the borders. I created the instagram notifications a few days before, designs like this are great as you can get the prep done in advance! Because of that I had them ready to go so once everything else was done I just had to pop them on top :)
