Bertie McBurtlebutton & Ms Blueberry-Baebae Go Water Skiing. Freehand Nail Art

All polish Pals!

How are you all doing today, is your week going well? I feel like I blink past Monday and Tuesday, before I know it we're at hump day. That said its great news if you are looking forward to the weekend and already counting down the days.

Today I have a follow up nail art – have you met Bertie Mcburtlebutton and Ms Blueberry-Baebae Bouffant? They are a couple I've featured in my nail art before. So far they've gone on two dates and poor Bertie has so far failed to impress his lady friend – gotta love a trier.

So far they went on a boating lake in which Ms Bluberry-Baebae had to eat the Marmite and cherry sandwiches he'd packed.. yum. On their second date he took her for a walk around his stately garden.. How much can go wrong there? Well he fell in the pond for a start.

For some reason I guess he thought taking her water skiing would be a fantastic idea for a date. They won't get to talk much so there's little risk of him saying something embarrassing.. He can show off his epic water skiing skills... Maybe not.

So for this nail art I began with my usual base coat, OPI's 'Nail Envy' – you can find out why thisis my all time go-to top coat here. This was dry within a minute or so and I followed on with ORLY's 'White Tips' – I used just one coat since I'd be covering the entire nails with acrylic paint. On top of the white polish I used a thin coat of my Pro-FX top coat and proceeded with acrylic paints, painting on a peach, pink and purple shade and blending them through to create the acrylic-gradient for my sky. I used my Pure Color brush in #10 for all the smaller details. Finally I sealed it all in with my ORLY top2bottom base/top coat and eventually added Barry M's matte top coat just because I love how smooth matte nail art looks.

Do you think Bertie managed to impress on the third date? Where do you think he should take her next?
