Spring Piggy

Allo polish Pals!

How are you all doing today? I hope you had an amazing week – tell me your highlight from this week. Today I am off to work but I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend.

This will be my last weekend at home as I have agreed to work Sundays. Its all day but its extra hours which is good. I'll also be pretty much on my own in the fragrance department and apparently they wanted me to do it as they know that I know my stuff. Quite flattering.

Because of this I have decided to cut my posts down to twice a week. I want to be as organised and as well planned as always so I feel that changing my post days will help me achieve that and keep the blog flowing as well as it has been (obviously more hours = less painting time but I feel I can keep up if I switch it a bit) My new posting days will be Monday and Thursday which will start next week and into the beginning month.

Today's nail art is summoning up all the visions of spring one could possibly want – where did our sun go by the way?! Look at this little piggy enjoying a nice mud bath! He looks pretty happy, don't you think?









I'm quite pleased with how this design turned out. I tried a pig before this design and I just wasn't feeling it at all. I think I could his joyful expression and the spring feeling down just how I imagined it.

For this design I began with my OPI Nail Envy base coat (a must for strong and healthy nails. I swear by this stuff!) And then moved on to two coats of ORLY's 'White Tips' for a nice blank canvas. I used blue acrylic for my sky, blending it into a light blue towards the tips of my nails using a medium sized brush (acrylic-gradient) For all the smaller details I switched to my Pure Color brush in a size 10. I sealed the entire design with coats of Pro-FX top coat and once dry applied my Barry M matte top coat for a very smooth finish.

What do you think of my spring piggy? Does it feel like spring where you are?

Thank you so much for dropping by, I hope you have a fantastic day! Don't forget to come back on Monday for another nail art design – HINT Get ready for some extreme 3D nail art!



Love,
Ithi

  12. Your Spring piggy is adorable! I love it, it has such a witty expression! I think you are right to want to be more organized, now that you'll work more hours, it wouldbe stressful to try to keep up with the same blogging schedule.
