well it's the most wonderful time of the year, also the busiest, sleepiest and broke-iest. i haven't had much time for fun nail art lately, but tonight, i decided to drop everything and paint my little nails. (they really are little. the hot dry heat has made most of them crack.)
Barry M Gold Foil, Butter London Come to Bed Red, Essie Going Incognito, Essence Mellow Yellow
Ever since i did the rose tips a few months back i really wanted to try them as poinsettias. and it turned out great [good enough]! i feel so festive! [now that part is true]
I used my smallest angled nail art brush for the petals and leaves.
and a small dotting tool for the yellow dots of course.
i did not practice these, but oddly enough the first one i did came out the best, my index finger.
for the thin lines that separate the petals i added green and red together, and used a long striping brush.
i hope you were inspired to try some christmas/holiday nail art of your own.
thanks for reading!
