Hello Friends, how have you been? The nail art I want to share today is kinna special because it’s the first time I tried doing freehand nail art with polishes. Now, I am not a big fan of using nail polish for such work because a) It dries on brush in between critical strokes b) It spoils the brush.
And this one in particular was difficult because none of the polishes I worked with were creme. They are all signature PP holo glitter filled polish making it further difficult to work with. Had it not been for Picture Polish Challenge, I would have never tried these. Initially I thought only Picture Polish is supposed to be used so I sweated to do these. Later I realized I could have used Black and White Acrylic Paints and I submitted another entry.
But good in a way, I went out of comfort zone and tried this. And to be fair these aren’t bad. It took over 3 hours. to conceive and execute. I was planning on skipping participating in the challenge but my mom pushed me and motivated me to try atleast.
So I made an honest attempt at these. The polishes I used are Picture Polish Orchid, Cherish, Ornate and Fool’s Gold. I have worked with only the mentioned polishes to achieve this. I did a little use of black acrylic paint to draw very rough stems and leaves. Over them I made final images from polishes.
The nail art brush used is mainly my favorite striper and detailer from BornPretty Store. You can buy them here and get 10% off with code HQBQ10. Let me know if you liked my attempt at polish painting.
