Blue Skies

I had to give the clouds a try.   Since I am missing sunny skies…. I created my own.  Very cute design.

#period.

The actual size of my nailbed, I realize, just doesn’t have THAT much space. 

I have a difficult time appreciating extensive nail art with 3D ornamentry (lol, I KNOW it’s not a word – yeah, yeah, ornamentation). 

Simply because of the limited area on a fingernail, visually digesting a bunch of rhinestones and feathers, numbers and letters, all at once,  is just way too overwhelming for my personal taste…. and thus was born:

lol. 

It was such a statement, I just couldn’t add more.  and I love it.

Outlined Polka Dots

Having short fingernails is like a complete playground for beautiful loud polish and extreme nail art.

I found this design on a Nails Mag Blog and could not resist trying it out.

Sinful Colors “Feeling Great” was the perfect base for the yellow-trimmed black dots of acrylic paint.

The most difficult part of this nail art design is making sure you don’t paint the base color (Feeling Great) “outside the lines” of your cuticle! 

The dots are child’s play.

I’m still having so much fun…..

I bought some new art brushes and some metallic paint today.  All I need now is some willing participants to let me play on their nail beds…… and, some free time. Smile
