Or, if you would, I finally decided to make some use of my Screenshot Folder, instead of saving all its pictures for 'later'.
Today's mani is a recreation of a drawing by @missmindful (you can also follow her on Facebook).
I love her adorable and quirky designs and I have probably a ton of her drawings on my folder, waiting to be recreated on my nails.
I actually had some difficulty choosing which one to go for, which is why my sister did it for me ;)
She said I just had to paint this one.
I started by painting all my nails white - I used Inocos Pico for that.
I then took my acrylic paints and a very fine detailed brush and began by painting the outline of the cutest jellyfish you'll ever encounter ;)
While waiting for that to dry, I did all the dots and star-fishes (?).
And only then did I coloured each jelly fish and drew a heart inside them.
I left lil' Mermaid for last, simply because I knew it would be the hardest - I'm terrible when it comes to painting faces and expressions, so that was definitely a challenge.
I also tried the matte version but, honestly, I much prefer the shiny one :)
The colours come out more vibrant and vivacious that way ;)
Let me know how well you think I recreated this cute piece of art by @missmindful and if you like her art enough to have it around your house (I sure do), here's her online shop :)
Hugs & Kissies,
