Fenton Egg inspired nail art

Sunday, November 4, 2012

I have several Fenton Eggs and I love the designs on each and every one of them. I have been staring at this particular egg and trying to get my nerve up to use it as inspiration for nail art.

Tonight I finally decided to try it. Not quite what I was going for but I kind of like it.

I used a base color of Misa Persian Carpet. This is a gorgeous shimmery polish. But it does require several coats to reach an opaque state.

Then I used acrylic paints and tried to used the one stroke paint method to paint the flowers. This is a technique that I am trying hard to master. The tutorial videos I have watched make it look extremely easy. Let me just say - it isn't as easy as it looks.

I used some green acrylic paint to add leaves. I finished the flowers off with a gold striping polish.

Then came the hummingbird. . . Green acrylic paint and a small brush. I used the gold striper for the bird's wings, beak and tail. Then I added some shadows with a gray acrylic paint and more detail with a black striping polish. I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry top coat.

NOTD - Misa Russian Sage with Butter London Knackered

Sunday, August 5, 2012

A quick Nail Of The Day post for you. Misa Russian Sage with a topcoat of Butter London Knackered.

Misa Russian Sage was a blog sale find. I just love it. A light shade of purple that has lots of depth to the overall look. I added even more depth when I put a coat of Butter London Knackered on over it. I finished off the mani with a top coat of Dazzle Dry Top Coat.

I just love this. Wonderful microscopic flecks of holographic goodness. It shimmers from purple to gray with the flecks shining through with the colors of the rainbow..
