Freehand Desert Sunset & Windmill Nails

Allo polish Pals!

Happy Friday to you all, I hope you've had a great week! Have you got anything fun planned for this weekend? Me? I've nothing really planned out but that all depends on the post and what the post man may or may not be bringing. Fingers crossed!

Today's nail art is aptly timed for the current theme over on Tiny Canvas where the prompt this week is Sunset nails. I painted these in December and I kind of liked the unearthly, unnatural look of this landscape. Its so sort of minimalistic that is perhaps looks a little apocalyptic?










For this manicure I began with my OPI Nail Envy base coat and once dry applied two thin coats of China Glaze's 'White On White' (which is getting dangerously low!) I applied a thin coat of my Pro-FX top coat (not so great to finish my manicure with, but ok to paint on top) and moved in with my acrylic paints.

The acrylic-gradient – ie my sky was created with a brush and various shades of pink, purple and peachy shades of acrylic paint. Everything else was create used my Dance 20 brush from WhatsUpNails. Finally I sealed in my art with ORLY's 'Glosser' top coat for a nice glossy finish. Of course..me being me, I had to see how it looked matte too!

What do you think about this nail art? Would you like to visit this place? Peaceful or creepy?

Thank you so much for visiting today, I hope you have a fantastic weekend. I'll see you again on Monday.




Love,
Ithi
