I cant get over her weather modification drone Snowball and how freakin absolutely precious he his. I’m working on a digital painting of him which will probably take a million years but in the mean time I had to do some Snowball nails for Mei.
I used the Snow Plum Skin colors because that is my favorite Mei skin an pink Snowball is extra cute. :3 The polish colors I used are Sinful Color’s Sugar Rush with two coats of Sally Hansen’s Lets Get Digital. I’ve used lets get digital a few times in the past couple months but I cant help it, it’s sooooo pretty and it fit Mei perfectly.
Over all I’m really happy with how Snowball turned out. I think I should have made the background more contrasting probably so I’ll keep that in mind for Tracer. I will eventually end up doing all of the characters but I started with my favorites first. So far I’m LOVING the game and I’ve sunk way too many hours into it. lol
If you haven’t been paying attention to all those commercials, let me enlighten you. This game is freakin awesome! It’s a first person shooter with a similar style to TF2 but in my opinion a lot more balanced and quite a bit more fun. The characters are so distinct and they are just created so well. Blizzard has been doing a great job with this game so far.
My absolute favorite characters are D.Va, Mei and Tracer. I had to do D.Va first though because her sticker is so CUTE! UGH LOOK AT IT! It’s a freakin bunny. :3 I will admit it’s eyes are a little too close together but other than that I think it turned out great! I used Finger Paints Where Art My Love and Color Show’s Impeccable Grey (I freakin love this grey btw), the white is acrylic paint. I also use ILNP’s My Private Rainbow over the pink.
I was asked to do Lovecraft nails and this is the result!! Based on this DA artistschibi-thulhu. I LOVEEE them. && they smell like roses because I used Revlon Parfumerie African Tea Rose.
I even did my other hand! lol
Using Revlon Parfumerie African Tea Rose and sinful color’s amethyst I did this beautiful gradient, and for sparkles I used WetnWild’s Kaleidoscope topped with ILNP My Private Rainbow. The Cthulhu, speech bubble, and the tentacles are acrylic paint.
These ended up being ridiculously cute, and they’ve lasted FOREVER!! lol I’m on like day 10 now? The tentacles were a last minute addition I’m glad I did because they really brought it all together.
Ducky Nails!! I was inspired by someone else’s ducky nails on reddit so I had to do some too. I used sinful color’s Most Sinful and the duck an foot prints are acrylic paint. Cutest duck I’ve done, such an upgrade from my goose nail fail. lol
I was too quick to take these and didn’t mess with the camera settings so there are two similar pictures to show you the blue.
I think these turned out so cute. They were really easy, it took me less than an hour to paint them. Hopefully they stay on for a while so that I can work more on my DnD campaign and some other artwork I’ve been doing.
I wanted to do something a little different for spring. I really love how a few of my nails turned out but I hate the fish. Whatever, a lot of people liked it so it’s not a total fail. I did however LOVE how my ring finger on the opposite hand turned out and I’m totally doing that as a separate look later.
I used Sinful Colors Island Coral, Color Show Impeccable Greys, and the glitter/flakies are Sally Hansen’s Perky Pink and Revlon Mooncandy Satellite, the gold was ELF Gold. Everything else was paint!
The swirly effect on my first fingers was an attempt at dry brush that turned out freakishly good so I got lucky with that. lol
Someone on r/stardewvalley said “Junimo nails next pls!” and so here I am, delivering junimo nails! They are not as detailed as my chicken and fence nails but they are still super cute. I tried to do one of every color I could find in the game searching through random videos where the community center was being finished.
It took a while but I finally decided on some colors only repeating the blue one because there are like a million blue ones in the game so why not. I also did my other hand, as challenging as it was lol, and I fixed my thumb nail. Yay!
I loveeeee this polish color, Sinful Colors Proescco. Which btw, if you didn’t know, is an Italian sparkling wine. I had to google it because I was curious and now I totally want some! The junimo are acrylic paint.
I’m really happy with how these turned out and they were quick and fairly easy to do. I’ve been painting a massive image for my dnd character or I would have done them a lot sooner. It is what it is.
So those of you who don’t really play video games if you have any inkling of what Harvest moon is, this is basically the same game but better. Here’s a link to some gameplay (It’s me, I don’t always have the softest language so be warned). I decided to do the game’s logo banner image though, because lets face it that is one cute chicken.
I LOVE this game. I’m pretty much addicted. I play it so much that I had my background gradient done for like a week before I actually painted on the chicken and the fence and stuff. It’s really fun but you’ll get sucked into a loop of “let me just finish doing this one thing then I’ll sleep and save”.
I used three polish colors, Klean color Neon Aqua, Pure Ice Scream, and Rimmel London’s Mintilicious (which was basically covered by mountains so I could have done with out it). Everything else is acrylic paint. ALSO… I broke my thumbnail on my other hand so I only did one hand! lol
Cacti Nails! So cute! I did both hands too because it was super easy.
I used 4 polish colors: Sinful Color sugar rush with 2 coats Sally Hansen Lets get digital over it (ring fingers an thumbs) & Pure Ice’s Pink Ice with two coats of Pure Ice Satin Ribbon over it. My cacti are acrylic paint.
I’m really happy with how these turned out!! The way that satin ribbon looks over pink ice is SO much prettier in person and the shimmer under it is way more apparent.
I played a little Street Fighter 4 but I was prettty bad. I couldn’t play my fiance without raging and wanting to chuck the controller across the room. Thankfully SFV is not quite as hard or maybe it’s new enough that I can actually do fundamentals and link moves together.
For SFV I decided to do an art since I never did one for SFIV. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out too (aside from my wonky + but I did it 200 times and I just gave up). I was going to do glitter because I can’t stay away from it but I did it. I only used one polish Revlon Colorstay Pale Cashmere (The rest of it is acrylic paint.).
I wouldn’t recommend it unless you absolutely love the color, even then I bet you could find something less streaky and doesn’t take 50 coats. I’m lazy and I have too much polish so I just roughed it.
I have recently been a little obsessed with Steven Universe. I knew that Rebecca Sugar (this chick is amazing seriously) who did such a great job on Adventure Time created it and I love her so I’ve heard most of the SU soundtrack I just gave in and binge watched it over the course of 2 1/2 days.
I really just love pink lion. I think he’s so cute and reminds me of my fiance so I had to have him on my nails. I only used 3 polish colors for this Sinful Colors Cinderella and Sugar Rush, and ILNP My Private Rainbow. The yellow and the lion are acrylic paint.
My acrylic paint was being a butt and my topcoat kind of shrunk the paint even though it was dry. 😦 You cant tell except in these pictures though!! DAMN YOU GREAT AT FOCUSING PHONE CAMERA!
I really love all of the characters so I think that I’ll revisit SU quite a few times. Peridot is my favorite character so she’ll probably be next. We’ll see!
