Just a little bit of sea-themed nail art I came up with here - I quite liked the way this turned out but I think it could have been better. And I don't think I'd wear this out of the house, the nail charm on its own would be enough of a pain!
To create this nail art I used:
- Random green striping polish (for the "seaweed)
- Leighton Denny polish in Notorious (for the background)
- Brush on nail glue (to attached the crushed shells)
- Viva La Nails crushed shells (for "sand")
- Millennium Nails seahorse nail charm
- Crystals (for the "bubbles)
Some more pics below if you're wanting a better idea of how it all looked:
It was all reasonably simple to do as well - painted nails, added nail glue to lunula and sprinkled the crushed shells on top, made sure they were stuck. Added the crystals and the seaweed, then attached the seahorse charm. I also managed to pick up the bag of diamantes from the wrong end and ended up with loads of crystals all over my floor - it looked ace! :-) And even though I've hoovered, I'm still finding the odd crystal stuck to my foot/bag/hairbrush etc.
What do you think? Of this design, and of nail art in general? I love nail art from a visual point of view and think some of it is amazing and requires loads of skill but I'm not brave enough to wear anything too "out there". I'd rather look at fancy nail art than go to an art gallery any day!
