Freehand Art Inspired Nails - Painting Of A Painting

Allo polish Pals!

How are you all doing today? I hope you've had an epic week - tell me did anything interesting happen to you? OH the stories I could tell from this week.. lets not go there right now though!

We had a few new fragrances come into work so I've been testing everything, getting to know the notes in each perfume and doing my homework so I can advise customers as best as possible.

Today's nail art was inspired by the concept of art within art. For that I painted what can be used to make art and also a miniature painting in a frame. Good job I've got a steady hand as painting within the space of the picture was pretty small and fiddly!

You'll notice I am using a black background for these pictures, this nail art was done towards the start of the year but I kept postponing it :)








I'd just like to say I'm sorry for the picture quality, I created this design shortly after I had my new camera and I wasn't quite so savvy with it then!

I created this manicure by starting with a coat of my OPI Nail Envy base coat. After a minute or so when my base coat was dry I then proceeded with two generous coats of ORLY's 'White Tips' – hands down my favourite white nail polish for nail art. I applied a thin coat of Pro-FX top coat to create a nice slick layer for my acrylic paints to adhere to and began my freehand design. For the details in this design I used my trusty Pure Color brush in size 10. Finally I sealed the design in with two more coats of top coat and eventually added my Barry M matte top coat on top for a nice smooth, even finish.


What do you guys think of this design? If you had to paint a theme onto your nails what hobby would you pick to suit yourself?

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you will come and leave your thoughts in the comments, I always love to know what you think. Have a wonderful weekend, I'll catch you again on Monday!



Love,
Ithi

  1. This is pretty! I love nails with a white base and colorful designs on it.
    If I had to paint a theme on my nails... I would probably end up with bare nails as I still can't freehand anything ;)

  3. I've been on such an artistic streak lately, I think I should attempt these nails on myself! I love the little palette you painted on. :)

  4. That is awesome! You are really talented, I have a friend who is also great at her painting her names. I have trouble even perfecting a solid coat in any colour. My 3 year old does a better job! I'm a horticulturist so there isn't much point doing my nails as they are always covered in dirt. But, I do love a great french manicure when I need to get dolled up every couple of years.

  6. These are so beautiful! My mom used to do designs like this for my sister and I when we were young! I don't grow mine out or get them done often enough but I love getting tropical stuff too.

  15. Those are so beautiful! They'd be wasted on me though as I'm far too active (and clumsy) with my hands - they'd be destroyed in minutes!
