3D & Freehand Sushi Nails

Allo polish Pals!

How are you all doing today? I hope you've been having a great week so far. I'm looking forward to this weekend as I worked last Saturday and bank holiday Monday meaning I missed out on all the delicious sun we were having – of course its just my luck that the weather seems to have changed.

All that said I've been having fun at work, I've had so many lovely customers and experiences.

I've been rather excited to show you today's nail art, I've been itching to post it sooner! Sushi is one of my all time favourite foods but its not so easy to get good sushi where I live...still, I found another way to enjoy it!

Besides landscape nail art designs I love painting objects in which I can shade and paint their own shadows, there's just something rewarding about painting something that looks like you could pick it up off the nails – I find food really good for that type of painting.

For this design I began with my usual OPI Nail Envy base coat and allowed to dry. A couple minutes later I was ready for two fresh looking coats of Essie's 'Vibrant Vibes' – the idea of the green background really makes me think of a punch of wasabi!

I then applied a thin coat of top coat and once dry I then moved on with my acrylic paints, painting each piece of the sushi and adding a darker green to create its shadow. Finally, I sealed the design in with two more coats of top coat and added Barry M's matte top coat on top, carefully placing the 3D sushi to my ring finger.

What do you guys think of this 3D sushi design? What do you think of sushi, hit or miss??
