I've recently become obsessed with the instagram account "nails2inspire." The owner of the account posts lots of photos of insane nails, like these:
They're miniature works of art! I especially love when she (I'm assuming the owner of the account is a woman) posts videos of the nail art being created.
I'm fascinated by them, but I don't even own any nail polish other than clear. Then I saw that Anna Bond from the Rifle Paper Company had used a mixture of nail polish and gouache.
Brilliant! So, I grabbed some acrylic paint and got to work!
I still can't figure out how you do your right hand, but it was fun working super tiny. I didn't actually have a brush small enough, so I ended up cutting some bristles out of a brush so that it would be small enough. And, I will say that the paint started to peel off after about a day-and-a-half, even though I top-coated it with clear polish. You can see the chipping here:
Nonetheless, I had fun! In fact, I caught a case of the giggles while taking photos for this post!
Any recommendations on nail polish brands to begin my collection? I know nothing about nails!
Thanks for stopping by!
