Sweet Bakery Delights - Freehand Nail Art Design

Allo polish Pals!

How are you all doing today? I hope you had an amazing weekend! Let me know what you got up to or what was the highlight of your weekend.

I've set myself some goals for this week. I've not been as active as I was – the odd days at work really throw me off but I figure on the days when I am not working I've no excuse not to slip in a work out.

You guys might have noticed by now.. I kinda like painting food! I don't enjoy eating all the food I paint (in real life, not literally trying to eat the food I paint on my nails..hurhur.) but there are some foods that look so pretty! Today's nail art is a good example of pretty looking food I don't actually eat myself.

I really don't have a sweet tooth at all!

 





Actually, one of the main reasons I like painting food is because of all the bright colours, different shapes and the challenge of trying to mix the different colours with highlights and shadows. That's my kind of fun!

For this design I began with my usual base coat of OPI's 'Nail Envy' and once dry I applied two coats of Staycation, a beautiful warm soft brown from ORLY's 'Breathable' collection. I then added a thin coat of my Pro-FX top coat and again allowed to dry. I then moved in with my Pure Color brush in a size #10 and my acrylic paints. Once I had painted my sweet treats I sealed them in with another 2 layers of top coat and eventually added Barry M's matte top coat for a nice smooth and even finish.

I also added little confetti triangles to each nail using the main colours of the treats on each nail.

I am rather happy with how these turned out. If there's any more food you'd like to see me paint just let me know! Painting food is all the joy without pesky calories, haha!


What is your favourite sweet treat to have? What do you think of this design?

Thank you so much for visiting today, its totally acceptable for you to go grab a doughnut or cupcake right about now. I hope you have an awesome day! I'll catch you again on Wednesday.



Love,
Ithi

  3. I love this art a little more - I have given up sugar, so while I can't eat sugar I sure can wear it!!! The donut art is my favorite here.
