Freehand Seahorse Nail Art

Allo polish Pals!

How are you all doing today? I hope you had a fantastic weekend filled with sunshine. I sure enjoyed mine, I was due a little work break. I enjoyed taking my niece and nephew to the park, frolicking in the sun. I finally had some time to sit down and paint – I think painting is one of those things that relaxes me so it felt good to have a little time out from everything else.

Did you watch the royal wedding?! Oh my god.. I am such a sucker. As soon as Meghan was out of the car I welled up at the sight of her dress. I don't think I'll ever get married myself and that's fine but I still love to see the dresses and the loving looks the bride and groom exchange. What a softie, huh?

Anyway, lets move on to some nail art, I could chatter about all sorts all day long otherwise!

Today's nail art is inspired by the current theme over at Tiny Canvas which is seahorses, you may remember this design I did a while ago.. I wanted to do something better.

I can't participate in all the challenges any more due to work – and the fact that the themes are now voted by the members which means I don't know what theme it will be in advance. You guys know how organised I am and how I like to plan my posts. Having a theme and having to do it in three days if I am working is just too much pressure. Still. I got this one done! 


I feel like there is very little to say about this design.. I just painted. I know that's so unhelpful.
I began with OPI's 'Nail Envy' base coat, I am literally recommending this to anyone who wants stronger and longer nails. Next I painted one thin coat of ORLY's 'White Tips' and once dry applied a thin layer of Pro-FX top coat.

With my sexy blank canvas prepared I then moved in with my pure colour brush in size 10 and a multitude of acrylic paints. Once finished with the design I then sealed it in with a futher two coats of top coat and eventually added Barry M's matte top coat on after.

What do you think of my seahorse family? What's your favourite aquatic creature?

Thank you so much for visiting today, my loves! Have a wonderful start to your week, may it be filled with glitter and wonder! I'll catch you again on Thursday.



  1. Awwww beyond cute Ithi. You have such a great eye for the small details that turn art into a story. The little seahorse on the right looks like she got a fright just before she ventured off of the safety of your fingers. And those bubbles. It makes it look alive. Beautifully done

  2. I didn’t watch the Royal Wedding, but I’ve seen videos & pictures. They are such a stunning couple!
    I really like this design! It’s so cute. I love the seahorse. My favorite aquatic animal is the manatee. 😄
