Good Morning Friends, today I have a very cute nail to share. I saw these pretty nails on Miss Happy and Her Nails (Madeline) IG account and instantly fell in love with it. The kitty and the coffee!! Could it be more adorable?
Madeline does very pretty freehand nail art. And you know my heart is always biased towards freehand nail artists. The nail art looked simple to begin with but I struggled to draw every bit of it. I don’t know why. May be actually that difficult or I was just having a bad day. I had to redo the cup alone 4 times.
Eventually I finished them with not so much satisfaction in heart. It’s really difficult to recreate someone’s work I guess. You can never guess the calculation she must have done to execute every element. I am recreating someone else’s interpretation of an idea or concept. So you have a direct comparison to someone’s execution without knowing the idea behind. (Hope I am confusing you, by reading my thoughts outloud, LOL)
This is why I prefer ‘Inspired’ more than ‘Recreated’. When you are inspired by something, you have a little ‘me’ element in the work, it is your take, your interpretation, your calculation and you are the creator. Whereas, when you recreate, it’s the other artist brains playing your mind.
I feel it’s more fun when two artists look at the same idea/concept and then present their take or interpretation of the same. Isn’t it? But even after knowing all the logics behind and disadvantages; when you see a nail art as pretty as this, you have no second thoughts, but to recreate.
The products used for this art are NYX Pastel Green, Wet and Wild Matte Top Coat and Acrylic Paints. One thing worth mentioning is the amazing suit of bornprettystore brushes. I can’t emphasise enough on the importance of correct brushes for a good art. I have used couple of them here (Brush 1 and Brush 2). I am so very impressed with them that I am already planning various other freehand designs with them. Please scroll through their collection of brushes, you won’t regret.
