Freehand Fruit & Vegetable Nails

Allo polish Pals!

How are you all doing today? I hope you all had a fantastic week?
This week has passed in a blur of cold, exercise and more job hunting. I'm applying for things and literally hearing nothing back from any of the companies. Its so frustrating, I feel like I don't have time to waste being unemployed and I miss being around people, being busy – Don't get me wrong, I am the sort of person who's always doing something but I need something other than home, if you know what I mean.

Today's nail art is one I can back, I grew up in a house were fruit and vegetables were staple and I've always enjoyed my vegetables in particular..so lets have some healthy nails (both from the fruit  & veg and the ORLY Breathable nail polish!)








For this design I began with my OPI 'Nail Envy' base coat – totally unneeded when wearing any of the ORLY Breathable range but I do like this base coat a lot. I tribute my long nails to this wonder. I then applied two thin coats of ORLY's 'Morning Mantra' – I thought this calming blue would look great with the various shades I would be using.

Once dry (so fast!) I applied a thin coat of my Pro-FX top coat for my acrylic paints to sit on top of. I then moved in with my Pure Color #10 brush and acrylic paints and carefully painted different fruits and vegetables on each nail, mixing a slighter darker blue to create a shadow for each item I had painted.

I finished it all off with my ORLY Glosser top coat, simply to seal in the design and eventually moved on to Barry M's matte top coat as I love how designs can look when matte.

What are your favourite healthy foods and which do you enjoy eating more regularly? What do you think of this nail art?#

Have a fantastic weekend my loves, thank you so much for stopping by. I'll catch you again on Monday!




Love,
Ithi

  3. Your freehand works always amaze me - how can you manage to put so much detail into something so tiny?! I love how the fruits and veggies evoke Springtime.
    Also, best of luck with finding a job! I'm in the same boat, and I agree, it's incredibly difficult to find a position nowadays.

  7. The colors and the designs makes me see that you are ready for the spring time. So pretty. I love the fruit ideas. I need to get a bit more creative with mine than just clear nail polish which is what I usually wear.

  9. Let me see... I'll go for the pepper bells, the mushrooms and the carrots, all cut up in small pieces and stir fried... and of course strawberries for desert! ;)
    I'm also keeping my fingers crossed you'll land a nice job soon. Just wondering, what happened to the nail tech training you were considering?
