Rescue A horse day - Freehand Horse Nail Art Design

Allo polish Pals!

How are you all doing this week? I hope everything is going your way so far.

I'm so excited for tomorrow night, I'm going to a Kaiser Chief and Blur tribute evening with my sister. I don't really go out much like this so its going to be fun! The only downer is that its cushioned by an early start at work on Saturday so I think it will be straight to bed, get up and run to catch the bus on Saturday morning. I can do it, I got this! Perhaps consider me out for the count on Sunday though!

Today's nail art is inspired by another one of those random 'days' in the year, which has already passed us (opps) the 16th of May is 'Rescue a horse day' so I wanted to create a very free and relaxed looking horse enjoying his enviorment. 

I quite like this design, this horse looks quite content looking at the rolling hills in his flowery filled valley. It reminds me of something, maybe a Disney film with a horse... is it called Spirit or something? My only qualms with this design was that I painted him on the fingers I did as it was very hard to photograph him connecting properly, usually I would have done it on my middle and ring finger. Oh well, not gonna dwell!

For this design I began with OPI's Nail Envy base coat and allowed a couple minutes for it to dry. Next I applied a super thin coat of ORLY's 'White Tips' for a nice blank canvas. I took a mixture of acrylic paints and my beloved Pure Color brush in size 10 to create all the details. I sealed the entire design in with my Pro-FX top coat and eventually added Barry M's matte top coat over the top for a smooth finish,

What do you think about this nail art design? Do you like horses?
