I haven’t done Pokemon nails in a while so why not now that I’m waiting on Pokemon Sun! I started with Rowlet because I KNOW for sure that this is my starter. I love all the starters but I’m partial to owls. I mean just look at how cute he is!!
So I had to do some Rowlet Christmas nail art to hold me over. I freakin love them (and this gif ugh)! But they were super detailed so I didn’t even bother with my other hand.
The green polish is Sinful Colors San Francisco and everything else is acrylic paint. I kind of want to do the rest of the Sun & Moon starters now. Maybe Popplio building snowmen (or snow-Pokemon!), Litten in a stocking?
** &&& If you have the game as well and want to trade Pokemon PM me with your game tag!!
I KNOW!! Omg rabbit that’s a lot of images. But look at how different each picture is, I mean I needed to capture the amazingness of ILNP My Private Rainbow jelly sandwiched over Pure Ice Satin Ribbon and Wetn’wild Hallucinate.
Not to mention I did BOTH hands and the other one actually turned out pretty decently!! My topcoat was also so shiny today (second day of wear too lol) that my camera kept focusing on the shine instead of the design.
I was just really feeling me some kind of fall mushroom scene so I did some random green blobbies with my acrylic paint and went from there. I don’t know what the green grassy things are but they totally fit right? I added light green in places to mimic how moss kind of looks and some brown hairs.
I feel like this is probably the easiest detailed design I’ve ever done! You should totally do mushrooms on your nails.
The fox says HOLO!!! hahaha, sorry I had to do it. I LOVE how cute these turned out!! I found my design on google after searching Fox Nails and found The Polished Life’s beautiful fox and leaves design.
I didn’t want to do leaves because I am lazy and doing a million other things for the holidays! (I’ll post pics of the finished products later this month or next month) I opted for some fresh holographic dew, uh yea. haha well, we’ll call it that anyway. I even included an out of focus shot of China Glaze’s Fairy Dust so you could see how holo it is!
The other color I used was also china glaze, Nice Caboose. The first picture (and second picture of my other hand!) is in fluorescent lighting so it looks a bit more maroon than purple but outside it’s almost a different shade, a very plum wine color. I LOVE it!
I used Wet-n-Wilds 2% Milk (about 3 coats, jeeze). After I had that down I used a makeup sponge and dotted polish onto the makeup sponge randomly using Sinful Color’s Ruby Ruby and Sally Hansen’s Plum Luck.
I then used a bit of 2% across the top of all the dots to give it a slight gradient effect and blended the colors in with the sponge like you would any gradient. Then I took Color-Club Snowflakes and sponged it on the tips going up the gradient leaving the top half more bare.
I really love this!! The flakies are the perfect light pink over this rose plum that was created by blending Ruby Ruby and Plum Luck. In the sun they were soo shifty and it’s very hard to capture but it went green at different angles.
More Halloween nails! I think these ended up so cutee! I found a shutterstock image on google with some cute ghosties and I based my idea off of that.
First I did my glow background with 3 polish colors: Pure Ice Home Run, Sally Hansen Pool Party, and China Glaze Ghoulish Glow. I did the glow polish for the background so that when I painted over it only the ghosts would show through. I outlined them with blue and purple acrylic paints (doing their tiny eyes and mouths) then filled in the gaps between them for a random watercolor feel. If I messed up I just used a slightly wet q-tip to rub the mistake away.I love how these little dudes look so happy!! I’m stuck on cute Halloween nail art. I’m doing some Ghibli Halloween nails next!!
I decided to do a full hero instead of tags and related designs. It was pretty hard!! The face is the only thing I’m super bummed about but it ended up a lot better than I thought it would be halfway through painting, lol.
I used three colors for the background Sinful Colors Snow Me White, and gradient Sugar Rush as well as Sally Hansen Blue Me Away. Mercy and the rest are acrylic paints.
I think this all boils down to needing better brushes but it looks cute and it’s instantly recognizable that it’s Mercy!! I rushed through the thumbnail but meh. I just need to practice letters.
I did this beautiful gradient with Finger Paints Blushstroke Blush and Beverly’s Touch. I just realized those are both B named polish colors and roses remind me of my grandma Beulah, awe. Ok sentiment aside, I felt like I needed to brush up (hehehe) on my rose game so I put in a little practice. Which I feel like paid off! I need to practice new techniques more often.
I followed some random chart from google after searching how to paint roses. I’ll do a tutorial soon I think after some Overwatch nails which I’ve laxxed on recently due to a loss in my family and my utter inability to work on nail art or any art in general. I’ve mostly been playing a lot of Starbound and cuddling my rabbits and my Fiance to save what sanity I have left at this point. It’s working so far.
I think I’ll be doing Mercy next or maybe widow who knows! If you want to see an overwatch hero let me know and hopefully it will be before I get around to actually doing them. 😛
hehehe. YAY! More Overwatch nail art! Pharah’s main skin for her character has a blue color so I chose Finger Paints Surfs UP. It actually has a really pretty deep purple shift which I’m pretty famous for never being able to photograph.
She also has this neat cobra tag that I tried my best to copy, all those LINES!! haha it drove me crazy.
I really love Pharah though, she’s a solid character in the game and I always feel really rewarded when I get those 60+ direct rocket hits!
Not sure which female hero I’ll do next, probably Mercy but we’ll see! If you have any ideas comment!!
I’ve been sewing for my niece’s second birthday and crafting away so these are well overdue! Here I am though, following through (Pharah will be around the corner here shortly)!
I used 3 colors for the background Salon Perfect Yowza Yellow, Kleancolor Neon Orange, and China Glaze Roguish Red and the rest is acrylic paint.
I used a different light setting for these other two images to show the depth of the gradient.
It’s been rainy for the past few days here so I couldn’t get any outside pictures which really show it off, so I think this was the closest I could get. I was a little crunched for time so I think what I’d do differently next time is probably put a little Cheers Luv on the thumb with maybe the grav bomb symbol.
All in all I think I did a good job given my time frame and my starting to fray to bits brushes. I really need some new ones!!
If you have any tips on my Pharah nails feel free to comment with your ideas!
I’ve been doing SOOOOO much creative stuff lately I’ve been burned out. But I also needed a break from Overwatch. Not much needs to be said about why I’m feeling a little prideful of Florida. I needed to express that, and I’ve been sewing a lot lately so I thought of doing a nice embroidery piece for my nieces dress for her birthday but lets face it I over stretched myself and have been drowning in a sea of gingham ruffles.
So I took little break yesterday from all my sewing and got to work doing something I enjoy, painting things I love and basking in the Florida sun. My favorite place. 🙂
The colors I used are Sinful Colors Cold Leather with Finger Paints 50 Shades of Ashley. The rest is acrylic paint, and it was pretty easy to do so I did the other hand as well.
Not only do I love Florida but I love the shift of 50 Shades over this dark blue, the sun really brought it out.
Overall I’m really proud of these, they ended up looking like I wanted in my head, though my bird is a litttttle stoopish. hehehe
