Today is Day 2 of the Falling forward Nail Art Challenge, It's Beachy Tropical, and I am so proud to say.. I did nail art!!! Okay, so it was an accent nail, but still.. super cool!
The idea for this mani, was a gradient, starting out with a dark blue (Zoya Ibiza) And then going a little lighter blue (Zoya Zuza) And finally ending in a light goldish sandy colors (Essence Go Bold!) Now, I did this gradient a little different than I usually do, I didn't paint on a base color, or use a sponge. Since My nails are so tiny.. (they really are super super little) I just painted stripes of color on my nails and then used a sponge over it! It worked out pretty well, I had to do it.. two or three times, but I got what I wanted, and then after that was done and cleaned up.. I matte-i-fied it.. and it came out perfectly!!
Ehh Ehh?? What do you think?? Oh and since my pinky is super little, the third color wouldn't fit! Hehe!
And then.. now comes the exciting part, one I got my gradient, I picked up my paint brush, dipped it in black nail polish (Wet N Wild Black Creme) And slowly drew on my palm tree! After that, I dipped it in white (Sinful Snow me White) And drew on my birds.. and Voila!! Beach mani!
I am so incredibly proud of this, you don't even know!!
