(Base color: "Baby's Got The Blues" by Miss Asleigh. Art done in white acrylic paint)Before you read further, I must apologize for the horrible side break on my pointer finger there. I had an especially stressful/busy morning at work in the kindergarden on Friday, and before I knew it the whole side of my nail there had broken completely off =(
This weeks theme, from Fingerfood's Theme Weeks, is weather. So, I went for the weather we have here in my neck of the woods right now =) This one was simple to do, I just used white paint and some dotting tools for draw the cloud and the different sized snowflakes falling. I just recently found out the trick to using acrylic paints for nail art, by watching an YT video comparing paints for nail art, which helped a lot in this. I found out that I need to water down the thick paint to get it a more fluid consistency, which is much better to work with for nail art. It's a lot better than my experience was with acrylic paint for my zebra stripes nails, that's for sure! The fluid paint made this so easy in fact, that I actually managed to paint the same design quite well on my dominant hand too =)
(Akward hand pose, I know. My first time posing with my dominant hand...)
